apology cookies.

sorry i haven't bee around much. i've been wedding-ing and new work doesn't permit my being on blogger.

these cookies are my offering as an apology. if you haven't tried them. you must. via rachel via smitten


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- {i only used 1 cup, because that's what i had}


preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. in a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.
beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.
stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. drop rounded balls of cookie dough, about a spoonful at a time, onto the prepared cookie sheets. cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

does anyone else use the cookie dough taste as a judgment of how good the cookies are going to be? or am i alone?

i didn't have time to photograph these before they were all consumed by our cookie maddness. so, the image is borrowed from the incredible rachel
