Today felt like a day for celebration. There was a miraculous update on Bills Safety Damar Hamlin. He collapsed during the Monday Night football game and was rushed to University of Cincinnati medical center. Each day there were updates of reported progress. Then today, the update was on “remarkable” progress, although he still has other progress to be made. One of the things that made me smile – Damar communicated to doctors asking, in writing, “did we win the game?” All the prayers made a big difference. God is good. Thanks to so many people who’s quick actions saved his life. And the outpouring of love for this young man has been overwhelming. All the donations and prayers made in his name and wonderful stories about him are just beautiful. My hope is all the love, kindness, and positive vibes and prayers put out there can remain and make the world a better, friendlier,more loving place.
And with that, I decided to bake marble cookies at 9 pm. Just a cookie made with browned butter and instead of adding all chocolate chips, I melted them and swirled them in.
Notes – I used bread flour in these in hopes they would not spread out too much. I did not have time to chill the dough. Remember to spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. And preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.
- 1 cup butter browned, not cooled
- 1 1/4 cups butter, browned
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 yolk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbs cream
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup chocolate chips,melted
- Extra chocolate chips
In a bowl, combine browned butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg, yolk, vanilla and cream. Blend in dry ingredients. Swirl in melted chips to marble dough. Scoop out 2 tbs dough and form mounds. Lightly press a few chocolate chips on top. Chill a few hours. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Stagger cookies on prepared sheer. Bake 10 minutes (no longer). Cool completley. Store in covered container.
