The Cookies Are Already Gone!

Can you believe the batch of choco chip cookies I wrote about on Wednesday is gonzo?! This could very well be a new record.

And Erv


didn’t even get one!

Recipe #6 for the Unofficial 1970 Kiki Project revolved around these chips:

president's choice CHUNKS - new to me!

…and chunky monkeys these are! – – >

it looks like one chunk would equal about 5 regular chips!

Since the star attraction is the CHUNKS, I decided to just flip over the bag, and make the PC-provided recipe. Besides, aren’t the back-of-the-package recipes always the blue-ribbon winners?!


Here’s the recipe – it is quick and it is easy – – two of my favourite things!

…but best of all, this cookie dough ROCKS!! The batter baked up wonderfully – each cookie is a pillow of chocolatey-chunkiness.


PC Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Cream 1/2 cup softened butter [I did use a butter stick] with 3/4 cup packed brown sugar. Beat in 1 egg and 1 tsp vanilla. Gently stir in 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Stir in one package PC The Decadent Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks. Drop by heaping 1 tbsp amounts onto ungreased cookie sheets [I lined my sheets with parchment paper], spacing two inches apart. Bake one sheet at a time at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes [I needed 10 minutes per sheet]. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Makes about 32 large cookies. [Hunh??! I got 18 NOT-large cookies!].

no sifting, no adding in increments; i mixed the wet ingredients, dumped on the dry, threw on the chunks, mixed by hand - that's the way i like to bake!

cookie clouds!

Only 18, though? Maybe I better set two aside for Erv

aka the yahtzee king!




Are you into March Madness?!

I’ve loved Duke since the Christian Laettner era of the early ’90s.


Now go make cookies! Just do it!
