Okay, so the recipe that makes my husband the happiest man in the whole entire planet (that's not an exaggeration) is my basic Chocolate Chips Cookies. He could (and does) devour them. I know he loves them, so I do try to make them somewhat regularly...you know, because I love him so.
But...the amount of time it takes to drop each cookie with two 'helpers' makes it a daunting task, sometimes. And entirely too time consuming too.
Thinking back to my college days, for some reason, Cookie Cakes were big in the area I went to school. Wegmans made a great one. (I miss Wegmans!). I also decided I miss cookie cakes.
Mind was a churning...recipes were reviewed...and the baker chemist in me developed what I thought would be a winner.
First time was a charm. Turned out oh-so-delicious. So delicious that this husband of mine nearly at the whole thing.
This husband of mine proposed to me only a month after our first date...when I gave him homemade whoopie pies. I wonder if he would have proposed sooner had I given him this recipe? He does love them so. Nearly as much as he loves me. Or maybe more?
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake (A Jackie Original)
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cream of tarter
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips
-Mix butter and sugars. Add eggs, mix. Add baking soda, salt, vanilla and cream of tarter and mix. Mix in flour. Add chocolate chips. Spread in a greased pie plate*. Bake at 350 for ~22 minutes. Devour.
* To spread quickly, I use cooking spray to spray the bottom of the measuring cup. I use that to spread the dough without it sticking. Quick and easy peasy.
I always think dessert under the dome makes a house a home. Perhaps you agree?
