I was making cookies with Daniel and thought that there might be some of you (horror!) who have never had a chocolate chip cookie. This post is dedicated to you... Americans take their chocolate chip cookies very seriously. There are probably hundreds of recipes for "the best" ccc. This is the one I have used for the past 20 years. Personally, I think it´s the best... I know, not very Spanish, but the butter came from Spanish cows... And if you are wondering, this is not becoming a recipe blog... I just fell off the "no sugar", no "white flour" wagon and I´m having a bit of trouble getting back on... (I blame this blog...)
Preheat oven to 160 C. Mix in a bowl 1 stick of sweet butter (113g) at room temp with 6 tablespoons (75g) white sugar and 6 tablespoons (82g) of brown sugar until well blended. Add 1 large egg. Mix well. Add 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (144g) of white flour, a pinch of salt, and 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda. If you can´t find baking soda use baking powder. Mix well. Add 200 grams of 75% dark chocolate that has been cut into small pieces and mix well.
Drop teaspoons of batter 3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until they start to brown. Let cool before attacking.
This was a great Corner View to end with. I learned quite a few interesting things about you and your corners! Thank you for all your sweet comments. And thanks for reassuring me that I´m not the only one...
