A Classic… Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Howdy y’all!

I don’t know about y’all, but as for me, I LOVE trying new things, but nothing beats a classic. So with all this new recipe testing I’ve been doing lately, I found myself craving a classic… chocolate chip cookies! This recipe is a fantastic treat any day of the week, and is highly rated at my house! I know that everybody claims to have the best recipe for chocolate chip cookies, and to them, it may be true. But as for me and my taste buds, THIS is the best recipe you will find for chocolate chip cookies! They are crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, and have an amazing flavor! Whether you think it’s the best or not, I do think you will LOVE them! So let’s get to it:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients

You’ll need to…

Pre-heat your oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, mix together your baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour. Set aside for later. In the bowl of your stand mixer (or a large bowl), beat together your butter and sugars, until it is light and fluffy; about 2-3 minutes.

Add your egg and vanilla, and beat for 2 more minutes. Add your flour mixture, and mix until well blended.

Then add the chocolate chips, and mix SLOWLY until evenly distributed.

Place heaping spoonfuls of dough (about 2 tbsp) on a cookie sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes.

Let cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Try and stop yourself from eating them before they get to the cooling rack… I know, it will be tough!

Heavenly. For real.

YES. I love these cookies! They are cookie perfections. Seriously, they are just downright fantastic! According to my brother, they are the best chocolate chip cookies he’s ever had! And I tend to agree… so chewy inside, with a nice golden brown color, and crisp on the outside, these cookies are absolutely heavenly! And the best part of this recipe, is that it is so easy and quick to make!

I hope you enjoyed reading about them, and I hope you go make them now so you can enjoy the fantastic flavors of these babies! I seriously need to hit the gym now… I might have eaten 4 of them today, oopsies!

Love,

Katie

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Welcome to my very first blog post! I have been so excited about getting this thing up and running, and it is finally here! I really thought for a long time about which recipe is should post first, there are so many yummy treats you all need to try! But after lots of thought (and talking about it with my good friend Marissa) I decided I needed to start off with a classic– something that is pretty easy, but oh so delicious! So here we are, with Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! I have made this recipe for my friends, family, and the doctors I work for, and they all really like them! They are definitely one of my FAVORITE treats, and I really think you will like this recipe! So let’s not waste anymore time, here we go:

You’ll need…

White Chocolate Blondies (with chocolate & peanut butter chips!)

Howdy!

***I posted this recipe a few weeks ago, but for some reason, wordpress deleted it… rude. But don’t worry, it’s baaaack!***

So once a week, some of my girls friends from college and I have a girls night, and a few weeks ago, we went to Painting With a Twist… you bring your own snacks/wine and learn how to paint a masterpiece (or in my case, lack there of). It is a ton of fun, but you HAVE to bring some snacks to munch of while you’re painting to stimulate the creative process 🙂 So I thought, what better way to treat everyone than to bake something delicious!

And so here we are, with White Chocolate Blondies! But not just your average blondies… these have peanut butter AND chocolate chips! So bad, but oh so good!

You’ll need…

***I have white chocolate chips pictured, but I did NOT use them... I used white chocolate for baking. It works MUCH better!

White Chocolate Blondie Ingredients

You’ll need to…

Pre-heat your oven to 350° F. Grease a square baking dish (8×8 or 9×9, depending on how thick you like your blondies… I use an 8×8). Melt white chocolate and butter in a double boiler, over barely simmering water. Stir constantly, until smooth. Once smooth, remove from heat and let cool. **Make sure you CONTINUOUSLY stir the white chocolate while you are melting it– if you don’t, it can burn on the bottom and not melt properly, and you don’t want that!

In a large bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer until they are foamy.

With the mixer still running, gradually add in the sugar and vanilla. Next, slowly pour in the white chocolate mixture.

In a small bowl, combine the flour and salt; fold into the white chocolate mixture using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour batter into the greased baking dish, and spread evenly.

Pop in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes (insert a toothpick or knife in the middle and make sure it comes out clean before removing from the oven). Cool on a wire rack before cutting!

I clearly couldn’t wait to take a bite… wahhhh. Yummers!

Oh gosh… just yum. It’s really all I can say! These are so good… I know I love them, they went over well at girls night, and my family was VERY excited to have the leftovers at the house! So the general consensus– MAKE THESE!!! I promise, you won’t be disappointed!

I hope you enjoyed reading about making these, but even more so, I hope you make them and enjoy!!! Feel free to leave any comments/questions/suggestions!!
