The thirty-seventh recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Chocolate Chunk Cookies, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's cookbook Comfort Food Fix, on page 257. Gaye chose the theme for the week: Divine Desserts.
Ingredient list: butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, oil, egg, vanilla, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chunks.
With just the two of us here, we don't make a lot of desserts unless I know I can farm some of them out or serve them to guests. This does not, however, apply to cookies. Cookies are the preferred baked goods dessert product say all the guys. I can make cookies by the dozens and know they will disappear in a timely fashion. Chocolate Chip cookies are a favorite so I have been wanting to try this recipe for them for quite some time, nice to have a deadline to force my hand in making them.
These are very good, I am impressed that the little amount of butter/oil did not affect the taste of the batter and the combination of the two flours worked very nicely as well. Lots of vanilla flavor, which is always a good thing, and a particularly good thing if one should say, perhaps, maybe, leave out the chocolate pieces in some of the cookies to accommodate those of us who don't really care for those in there. Mark says they are worthy of the name. Definitely a repeat.
