Raise your right hand. Stand on your left leg. Hop in a circle and say “I solemnly swear to never share Rachel’s Super-Top-Secret Double Chocolate Chipper Cookie Recipe. Ever.”
Well done! Are we good? Good. ‘Cause these are some seriously delicious cookies, even if I say so myself. I developed them, if you will, while on exchange in Finland. They are now, 14 years later, my most requested cookie. I share them with you because I love you. And because most of you live to far from me that I can’t make them for you personally. I wish I could!
Like any basic cookie recipe you begin by sifting the flour into a large bowl and setting it aside.
Then you cream the butter……
Along with white sugar and light brown sugar.
I’ve made these cookies so many time I’ve worn the tip off my paddle attachment, see? I keep waiting for the Pioneer Women to gift me with one……..only I can’t decided which floral pattern I want most…..
Add some good, fresh eggs…..
After the eggs comes the extracts and this is where is gets super-crazy and wicked good……not only do you add vanilla extract, you also add almond extract!
I told you it was wild!
Now slowly add those dry ingredients….
…….until they are fully incorporated.
Now for the fun part, chocolate! Not only are we gonna add semi-sweet chocolate, we are gonna add white chocolate too!
Mix up and eat it all straight from the bowl.
Just kidding! Only eat like 3 spoonfuls.
Using a cookie scoop, plop them onto a cookie sheet.
Bake just until light gold. Over-baked cookies are a sin. Right up there with Hammer pants, black tennis shoes, short-alls, tie-dyed T’s, margarine, store-bought crust and paper plates.
Do. Not. Over. Bake. The Cookies.
They should look like this……
You are welcome.
