Chocolate chip/chocolate chocolate chip cookies

While trying to decide between. A chocolate chip and chocolate chocolate chip cookie, I just decided to combine them and present this monstrosity for the Bills victory cookies. Wow, does my mood change after a win.

I decided to brown the butter with these. You don’t have to, but browned butter can give treats a unique and delicious taste. I recommend chilling this dough. Remember to spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup and to preheat your oven to 325 degrees before baking. I baked these for 18 minutes. I have no idea if they are done, but did not want to burn them. I think my ESPN friends will still be happy with them.

Here are some tips to brown butter – cook it in a pan over low to medium heat, stirring occasionally, until you see little brown bits. Remove from heat and cool 5 to 10 minutes.

Bananas for a Saturday morning at ESPN Radio

Banana chocolate chip bars with brown butter frosting

I am filling in tomorrow morning at work and need a treat to bring in for my people. These are dense banana bars with chocolate chips and brown butter frosting. They are also made with melted white chocolate chips. I have done different flavored treat using melted white chips, so this time ibtried banana. I arrive at 6 am tomorrow morning, so breakfast will be served then.:)

Reminders – preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking So it cycles to the right temp. Scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup to get the right amount. If you pour the flour directly into the measuring cup, it gets packed in and can dry out the bars.

Bananas = fruit= breakfast
  • Ingredients
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 2 cups mashed bananas

In a microwave safe bowl,melt white chips and butter in 45 second increments until you can stir smooth. Stir in sugar. Mix in eggs. Stir in bananas. Blend in flour. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread evenly into foiled pan. Bake 22 to 27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center basically comes out clean. The edges will be a light golden brown. While bars are warm, make the frosting.

  • Frosting ingredients
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 plus cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Brown butter triple chip cookies

The cookie monster!

As I continue to break in out new stove, I present another version of the triple chip cookie. I used browned butter to give them a different flavor and active yeast to make them chewy.

Tips – scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup. (Pouring it in packs in the flour and winds up being too much flour,which could make dry cookies). I like to chill the dough for a bit so they cookies don’t get too flat. Also, preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes so it cycles to the right temp

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, shredded
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp active yeast
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

In a pan, brown butter over low-medium heat. (The butter melts, you continue to cook and stir it occasionally until little brown specks appear. Once that happens, set aside for ten minutes. In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda and yeast. Cut in cold, shredded butter. Add browned butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Stir in chips. Scoop out 1/4 cups dough. Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. Stagger cookies. Bake 9 to 13 minutes (light golden patches on top). Cool completely.

My new pooh potholder!

Chocolate chip bars

Chocolate chip bars

Chocolate chip bars. A classic. A request from my hubby, Rob. Something else for me to make as I attempt to figure out our new stove. Brownies and bar cookies have been a bit of a disaster so far, but I think I have figured it out. The issue was the pan, i believe. Hopefully, no more problem treats!

All those chips!
  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup Crisco
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. In a bowl, cream Crisco, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg, water and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. If mixture seems too dry, try mixing it with your hands, or add another tbs of water. Fold in chips. Press into prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you day is a good one, filled with peace, joy and love. And remember to be kind. You will need someone to be kind to you when you are having a tough day.

Puffy, large chocolate chip cookies

All that puffy goodness!

Testing out our new Frigidaire gas oven with a chocolate chip cookie recipe… One of the more than 20 ccc recipes I have. They came out perfect. I also picked up some aluminum cookie sheets because I have been ready some articles how they bake cookies better. I am very pleased with how they came out. I think I may be investing in some aluminum cake and brownie pans too 🙂

Remember to scoop your flour from your flour container into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Also, chill the mounds of dough for a couple of hours. And finally, preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking, so your oven cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup Crisco
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla (I used imitation)
  • 2 1/4 cups flour (scooped from your flour container into your measuring cup)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, Crisco, brown sugar and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Fold in chips. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dough. Gently push a few extra chips on top. Chill dough mounds a few hours in fridge. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners, stagger cookies on the sheet. Bake 9 to 12 minutes (light golden patches on top). I let these cool on the sheet for 10 minutes after removing from oven,hoping they would stay puffy (they did). Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you make these, let me know how they turn out. I hope you have a wonderful day, filled with joy, peace and love. And remember to be kind. We all deal with trials and tribulations. Some are tougher than others.

Cookie dough brownies

Cookie dough brownies!

These are so easy to make and contain enough sugar to last anyone for two weeks! ☺ I used a homemade brownie recipe for the base, but you can certainly use a boxed mix. I used melted milk chocolate as the topping, but you can use semisweet or dark chocolate chips if you want.

If you want to spruce up your brownie mix, substitute in coffee for the water, and melted butter for the oil. You can also make both substitutions.

Remember – 1) spoon your flour from your flour container into your cup so you get the correct amount. 2) preheat the oven for 20 minutes before baking So you get the right temp

  • Brownies ingredients
  • 3/4 cups butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp chocolate extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil and spray with baking spray. In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Add sugar and brown sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time and extract. Add flour and salt. Mix in chips. Spread in prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs. Cool completley.

  • Cookie dough layer
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup flour

Directions – mix butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add vanilla. Stir in flour. Spread over cooled brownies.

Chocolate chip topping – in a microwave safe bowl, combine 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 tbs vegetable oil. Heat in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. I recommend cutting brownies before the chocolate layer completely sets. Cutting hardened chocolate is a challenge and messy for me.

Sweetness goes a long way in the world!

I hope as you read this, you know how much you matter and how much you are loved. And remember to be kind. Life is hard for everyone and many are battling things that we do not know of. Try to be as compassionate and understanding as you can be.
