Triple Chip Mudslide cookies

Triple chip Mudslide cookies

These are a wonderful cookie – fudgy, soft and made with three kinds of chips – semisweet, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. They stayed nice and puffy too, which I love. Flat cookies are not my bag.

Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. (Don’t directly pour from the bag into the measuring cup). I recommend chilling the scooped out dough for a few hours to prevent cookies from spreading. I also recommend you preheat your oven to 325 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it cycles to the right temp.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions – in a bowl, combine butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg, yolk, and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips. Blend in dry ingredients. (You may need to use your hands to mix it all together if your mixer can’t get it done. Stir in chips. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough and roll into balls. Chill a few hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 325 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. Stagger cookies on sheet. Bake 11 minutes (no longer). Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a day filled with peace and joy. And remember to be kind. Your kindness may be just what some one needs.

Triple chip olive oil cookies

Another chocolate chip cookie recipe for you. These feature semisweet, white and milk chocolate chips. I used olive oil instead of butter.

Scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. Once you add the dry ingredients, you may want to use your hands to mix the dough. Also use your hands when you mix in the chips.

If you decide to chill the dough, I recommend scooping the mounds of dough out first. It will be difficult to scoop out chilled dough. I am a big believer in chilling cookie dough to keep cookies puffy.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions – mix olive oil, sugar and brown sugar. Stir in egg, yolk and water. Blend in dry ingredients, using your hands. Mix in chips, using your hands. Scoop out 2 tbs of dough and form tall mounds. Chill. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheer with parchment paper. Bake 10 to 12 minutes (you will see golden patches on top). Store in covered container.

Perfectly puffy!

Reese’s stuffed cake mix cookies

These Reese’s stuffed cake mix cookies are super simple – a cake mix, water, vegetable oil, one egg, and Reese’s or oreos or other candy to stuff them with. I do recommend preheating your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. And bake no longer than 10 minutes.

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • Reese’s pb cups, unwrapped

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. In a bowl, combine cake mix, egg, water, and vegetable oil. Mix well. If you feel the dough is too dry. Add more water, one tbs at a time. Scoop out 2 tbs dough. Divide equally into two pieces. Lightly flatten each half. On one flatted half, place one peanut butter cup

Place other flattened piece of dough on top. Make sure dough completely covers reeses. Stagger on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Cool completely. Store in covered container

Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you have a wonderful day, filled with peace and joy. Go Bills!

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.

Congo/chocolate chip bars

Chocolate chip cookie bars

These are an easy, popular treat. Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies, in bar form. Less time consuming, but all the joy of chocolate chip cookies. An egg yolk makes these soft, as does the addition of cornstarch. Remember to scoop your flour from your flour container into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. I used a combination of regular chocolate chips and mini ones.

I may have removed these a little too soon from the oven, but I didn’t want to bake them too long and dry them out. So they are a little on the softer/gushier side. Rob did not seem to mind at all.

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 yolk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrres for 20 minutes. Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil and spray with baking sprat. In a bowl, combine butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add yolk, eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Fold in chips. Spread into pan. Bake 30 minutes (edges will be lightly brown). Cool completely. Cut and store in covered container.

Brownie stuffed sugar cookies

I made some brownies and didn’t want to bring in “just brownies” to work, so I decided to stuff most of them in sugar cookies. I say most because I ran out of cookie dough, so a few “just brownies” will arrive with me tomorrow morning.

Didn’t do a good job of covering the brownie 😀
