Today I needed to bake. I don't know what makes me get into the mood that I have to bake. But, I do know, that if I get in the mood I should just do it....the results are usually good! I have wanted to try a new recipe from Cook's Illustrated. It deviates from the normal chocolate chip cookie....in a good way! You have to melt the butter in a skillet and let it get golden brown and nutty smelling. You don't use a mixer to make these...nice! If you choose to make these follow the recipe exactly and read all their helpful hints. It will help you make the best cookies. I love that eating just one cookie is enough. It's big, chewing, gooey, and filling. It's a cookie with a lot of flavor and has a good texture. I hope this post will make you try it, I believe you won't be disappointed. I can't wait for my husband to get home. He'll love it and I'll get all of the praise...really you have to start with a great recipe but he doesn't need to know that (wink, wink!).
P.S. It only made a dozen for me! Well, really that's a good thing...you understand, I know you do!
