Acceptable flat chocolate chip cookies

Look at all those chips!

Usually, I prefer my cookies to be puffy, like mounds of sweet goodness. These turned out a little flatter than I prefer, but I still believe the are acceptable to serve to others. And as an extra treat, I melted milk chocolate and coated some on the bottom. Why, you ask? Just because. ☺

  • Cookie ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp hot water
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs. In a separate cup, dissolve baking soda in water. add to sugar mixture. Mix in vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Stir in 1 1/2 cups chips. Form 1/4 cups of dough into mounds. Gently add extra chips (from remaining 1/2 cup) into the top of each mound. Chill dough a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Bake 12 to 14 minutes (light golden spots on top). Cool completely. Optional – combine 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 tbs vegetable oil in a microwave safe container. Microwave in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. Cover bottoms of cookies. Let set, upside down, until chocolate is solid. Store in covered container.

Frost the bottoms with melted chocolate!

Hat trick of cookies!

Remember to be kind. We are all going through some sort of trial. Some people’s trials are extremely heavy burdens. Give people a break. And give yourself a break too. Wishing you peace, love and happiness. ❤
