Okay, so it has been a lot longer than I had wanted since my first Excursions in Baking post. I ended up getting way too busy. I recently made a ton of cookies to bring in to work because it was my last day. A while back, my husband found this awesome chocolate chip cookie recipe, and along the way I decided to tweak it and add different candies in it. The cookies are always a hit! The recipe is heavily based off of THIS recipe from Allrecipes.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup heath chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Mix together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.
7. Bake for approximately ten minutes, until edges are brown. (I tend to undercook them, so the middle is still a little gooey, so time can be based on how you desire your cookies. The cook time will also differ with how large you make your cookie spoonfuls, or I tend to make balls. I like larger cookies, so I tend to make mine larger than the recipe suggests.)
You know you want to try these, so give it a whirl, and let me know how they turn out!
