Supersize Cookies

These cookies are huuuge.  They are  half dark chocolate cookie with cut up Reese’s eggs (I finally used them all up) and half chocolate chip cookie.  The only unique ingredient is bread flour.  They made the cookies thick and puffy.

Chocolate chip cookie ingredients – 1 cup butter, 3/4 cup sugar,  1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla, 6 tbs water, 3 cups bread flour (scooped, using a spoon from flour container into measuring cup), 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 1l2 cups  semisweet  chocolate chips (or use whatever flavor you wish )

Brown butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until little brown bits form (takes between 10 and 15 minutes.   Here’s what it looks like.  

 To the browned butter, Add sugar and brown sugar.  Add eggs, water and vanilla.  Stir in dry ingredients.  Fold in chips.  Set aside. 

Dark chocolate cookie ingredients – 1 cup butter (softened), 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tbs vanilla, 1/2 cup bakong cocoa  (I used hershey’s special dark), 1 1/2 cups bread flour (scooped, using a spoon from your flour container into your measuring cup), 1/2 tsp salt, 1 cup all purpose flour, 2 cups of chopped Reese’s candy (or other candy, chocolate chips etc)

Cream butter,sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.  Mix in cocoa, then rest of dry ingredients.  Fold in Reese’s.  

To assemble the cookies – scoop 2 tbs of chocolate dough and 2 tbs of chocolate chip dough and gently smoosh  together.   Chill 1 hour.  Preheat oven to 350.  Stagger on cookie sheets lined with baking liners (8 on a sheet).  Bake 12 -18 minutes until lightly browned on bottom.  Let cool 10 minutes on cookie sheets.  Cool completely and store in covered container.
