Cookies are my love language.
Well, actually so is Nutella….
and iced coffee….
Apparently my love language is food.
I’ve been looking for and creating a basic cookie recipe. I wanted something that I could add different things to without creating a whole new base each time.
So I’ve been researching and trying things out. I’ve read about different flours and what they are designed for and why. I’ve read up on different types of sugars and why certain ones are best for certain things.
I like my cookies to be thick and chewy. Always chewy. I can handle a thinner cookie as long as it is chewy. I do not like crunchy cookies.
For these cookies I used the basic cookie recipe and I added cinnamon chips and oatmeal. YUM!
This is the basic recipe I came up with. These cookies only lasted the day and everyone scarfed them so I’d say they where a hit.
- 1 1/4 cups bread flour
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup 2 sticks salted butter, at room temperature
- 3/4 cups white granulated sugar
- 3/4 cups lightly packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 - 1 cup Nutella
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium bowl, sift flours, salt, & baking soda.
- Use an electric mixer to beat in the sugars, eggs, & vanilla.
- Stir in Nutella... it will be marbley and this is ok.
- Add chocolate chips.
- Place heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough on a baking sheet, 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are just starting to turn brown.
- Cool for a few minutes on the baking sheets, remove the cookies and cool completely on a wire rack.
- Serve with milk or iced coffee and ENJOY!
