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.

Week 8 victory Monday cookies

A chocolate version of the Franks! (Triple Chip chocolate cookies)

How is it week 8 already? Wow! I found today’s Bills game far too stressful. At least we got a win. And 5-2 is a solid record. To celebrate, I made a chocolate version of the triple chip cookies. And I slathered some melted milk chocolate on the bottom because,why not? Also, we set out a bowl of candy for Halloween, on a table. Rob keeps replenishing it and so far, no kid has dumped the bowl in his bag! And we only have 35 minutes left!

Double chocolate, triple chip brownies

Double chocolate, triple chip brownies topped with powdered sugar

These brownies, dear friends, are one of the first treats I remember making my myself. They are an old Nestle tollhouse standby. I actually meased it up by melting 2 cups of chocolate chips instead of one, but I have never gotten any complaints, so I stuck with that “mistake”. Rob wanted me to add a combo of white, milk chocolate and semisweet chocolate chips, so I did. These aren’t super fudgy, but not cakey either. I think you will like them.

All that chocolate!

Reminders – preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Also, scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount.

Happy father’s day triple chip cookies

Happy father’s day cookies

Today’s recipe is in honor of father’s day, especially my dad, who had quite the sweet tooth. He would have been so thrilled this past week to see his grandson, my nephew Jackson, get a ball from Bills qb Josh Allen, after Josh threw out the first pitch before the Yankees- Blue Jays game in Buffalo. It was such a thrill for me to get the pix from my sister in law. For sports and life to intersect like that, it makes my heart full. My dad loved both the Bills and Yankees, and Jackson more. ❤well, my papa did have a good view od it from heaven.

I added an instant vanilla pudding mix to this recipe and used a combo of all purpose flour and bread flour, because I have a bag of bread flour and am trying to use it up. You can use entirely all purpose flour if you want. Remember – Scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup, chills your dough for a few hours, and preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.

  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Stir in pudding mix. Blend in flour, baking soda and cornstarch. Mix in chips. Form 1/4 cup mounds of cookies. Chill dough for a few hours. On a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper, stagger cookies. Bake 8 to 11 minutes. They will have a few light golden patches on top.

Kluber Chip Cookies

Kluber Chip cookies

I needed another name for yet another chocolate chip cookie and Corey Kluber of the Yankees had a no hitter this week, so I am naming these in his honor. I know a lot of people have complained about the amount of no hitters, but I appreciate them and think they’re great. Hence, the cookies!

These are made with bread flour, so they are a very thick cookie. I also used 3 kinds of chips – semisweet, milk chocolate and white chocolate. Remember to spoon your flour from you container into your measuring cup to get the correct amount, and preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking so you get the right temp.

Mega triple chip cookies

Right out of the oven!

What better way to celebrate a random Thursday in May than with a mega chocolate chip cookie. Needed a synonym for big, so mega was my winner this time. I had no time to chill the dough, so I went with Crisco this time because I find butter can make the cookies spread if the dough is not chilled. I used a mix of all purpose flour and cake flour because I realized I have two boxes of cake flour. (You can also sift together 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour with 1 1/2 tbs cornstarch and make your own cake flour. Rob also asked for triple chips (milk chocolate, white chocolate and semisweet). Remember to spoon your flour from your container into your measuring cup to get the correct amount and preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup Crisco
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2/3 cup white choc chips
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup milk chocolate chips
The bigger the cookie, the better!

Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Cream Crisco, brown sugar and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Dough may take a while to come together. Mix in chips. Divide dough evenly into 9 pieces. Line a cookie with nonstick baking liners. Stagger cookies on the prepared sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes. (Golden spots on top). Let cool completely on cookie sheets. Store in covered container.

White chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies

White chocolate macadamia nut cookies

This recipe is courtesy pf a request I received on Twitter. White chocolate chip cookies with macadamia nuts. You can, of course, sub in another type of nut, or leave them out. I also “frosted” the bottoms of the cookies with melted milk chocolate. You’re welcome.

Reminders – 1) spoon your flour from your flour container into your measuring cup, so you get the correct amount. If you pour the flour directly into the cup, you get too much of it and the result can be a dry cookie. A grave offense, if you ask me. 2) chill your cookie dough at least an hour. It keeps the cookies from spreading too much. 3) preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Ovens cycle through different temps and usually 20 minutes is enough time to get to the right temp

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Fold in chips and nuts. Divide dough into 16 pieces and form mounds.

A cookie mound

Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Stagger cookies on the sheet. Bake 11 to 13 minutes. (Light golden spots on top). Cool completely. Optional -in a microwave safe container, combine 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 tbs oil. Microwave in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. Frost bottoms of cookies. Let set, upside down, until chocolate has hardened. Store in covered container.

Frosted with melted chocolate

Remember to be kind. These are really tough times for a lot of people. You never know what people might be going through. You would want to be shown the same grace and kindness. Sending love your way.

White chocolate brownies with milk chocolate ganache and mini M&Ms

I wanted to bring in another treat to go along with the very large chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips. I noticed I have a few bags of white chocolate chips, so I opted for white chocolate brownies. I usually toss in some milk chocolate chips, but decided to instead make a milk chocolate ganache to put on top. And then, top it all off with mini m&ms. Because m&ms make take everything to another level.

Reminders – preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking So the oven cycles to the right temperature. Scoop your flour from your flour container into your measuring cup.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips (usually 10 oz)
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips (opt)

Directions – in a microwave safe bowl, heat butter and white chocolate chips in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in sugar. Stir in flour and salt. Add milk chocolate chips, if using. Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil and spray with Pam. Spread dough evenly. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center basically comes out clean. Brownies will be light golden on top. Cool completely.

  • Ganache ingredients
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions – heat cream in a microwave safe bowl until hot (45 seconds -1 minute). Pour over chips. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir smooth. Leave in bowl for 10 minutes or so to firm up a bit. Pour over cool brownies. Top with M&Ms.

Let ganache firm on the brownies before cutting them (or don’t and be like Rob, my husband 😏) Store in covered container.

If you are struggling with something today, remember you are not alone. I wish you kindness, peace and love. To quote the great Bruce Springsteen “tomorrow there’ll be sunshine, and all this darkness passed.”

Frosted Cake mix cookies with mini m&ms

Easy cake mix cookies!

I panicked at the thought of bringing 6 cupcakes into work tomorrow (although they are very large), so I decided,to add some cake mix cookies to bring in. I used a white cake mix for the cookies, topped them with white chocolate frosting, and I topped them with mini m&ms. They cookies are puffy and soft and I think you will really like them. You can try and different cake mix flavor if you want. You can also use semisweet or milk chocolate chips in the frosting if you prefer. Remember to scoop your flour from your flour container into your measuring cup so you get the correct amount, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before you start baking, so the oven is the perfect temp. Also, I really piled on the frosting thick and still had a little left over. If you don’t want a ton of frosting on the cookies, you can halve the frosting recipe or save it to use on something else.☺

  • Cookies ingredients
  • 1 white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. In a bowl,combine cake mix, flour and cornstarch. Add egg whites, vanilla water and oil. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Stagger 1/4 cups of dough on the prepared sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. They will be lightly golden on the bottom. Cool completely.

  • Frosting ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Have a wonderful week! And remember to be kind!
