Lazy + Best Chocolate Chip Cookie EVER
This cookie is so good it tastes like it was plucked off of a vine created by God, so I had to dress up the plate to help celebrate its glory!
I always like to try new recipes so when I was yoked with the very serious responsibility of creating a "bazooki" for a friend's birthday recently, I thought it was the perfect time to try a new chocolate chip recipe. A bazooki is a chocolate chip cookie served with ice cream, whipped cream and hot fudge sauce, or some variation on that depending on the recipe.
I googled what I always google when searching for new recipes. I insert the word "best" or "most amazing" in front of the needed recipe. So, this recipe is aptly named "Best Chocolate Chip Cookies." http://allrecipes.com/recipe/best-chocolate-chip-cookies/.
My variation on the recipe was the following:
1. Instead of 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips, I added one cup of chips, one cup of semisweet chocolate chunks (from Trader Joe's) and about 2/3 cup of Trader Joe's new Peanut Butter Chips.
2. Instead of 1 cup walnuts I added two cups of mixed nuts -- toasted slivered almonds, pecan pieces and walnut pieces.
Oh. My. God.
And, this recipe does something new -- you dissolve the baking soda in hot water which I really do believe makes a difference in the texture. As Dora, the recipe contributor notes they are perfectly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
