I’ve already mentioned that cakes are my favorite form of dessert so you know it’s a big deal when I make cookies. Usually, they’re for A. His favorite form of dessert is cookies and if they’re chocolate chip, you’d better hide your share. Obviously, I made these a few days ago. The conversation went like this:
Me: What do you want for dessert? Cookies?
A: Do you have to ask?
Me: Chocolate chip?
Ohh, rhetorical question.
And so these little morsels were born. Double chocolate (white and dark), a large dose of vanilla, and a healthy amount of butter.
TGIF!! Have a wonderful weekend and eat a chocolate chip cookie for me!
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Yield: ~41 cookies
3 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 c salted butter, softened
1 c raw sugar (or white)
1 c brown sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1 c white chocolate chips
3/4 c chocolate chunks (unsweetened – you can use semi-sweet if you prefer)
Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine butter and sugars together until well-mixed. Add in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture and stir until thoroughly combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Today’s recipe of the day is a delicious, I-can’t-stop-eating-this type of cake. It’s a nut lover’s dream and it also happens to be gluten-free. However, gluten fans can still enjoy it since it’s flourless and they don’t have to worry about running to the store and buying one of the 1000 types of gluten free…

Does anyone really get tired of cookies? I don’t think so. If you haven’t caught on yet, this month is Christmas cookie month. So many new recipes to share with you – this one being an old recipe that’s tried and true. This is my mom’s favorite recipe for Russian tea cakes, a cookie that she…
Poached eggs are a new favorite. A doesn’t love them as much as I do but they are a) fun to make b) taste awesome c) less messy (though the vinegar does stick to the pot which requires lots of scrubbing) and d) you can top everything with them. Like these herbed savory waffles. I…
Can it be Friday again? I had a wonderful weekend but I feel exhausted. If you’re following on Snapchat or Instagram, you got a glimpse of my chaotic Saturday but to be honest, yesterday was fully relaxing. I guess it’s just one of those days. This Monday morning is all about spring style: cropped trench, lace…
Packing to go anywhere is always a challenge but I’d have to say that packing for the UK proves to be the biggest challenge of all. I’ve had a bad record with under-packing; our road trip to Ireland was proof of that. I packed all wrong for that trip: summer dresses and short sleeves when I should’ve…
