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.

King Sized Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter!

I needed a little something extra to bring into work tomorrow, along with my small batch of ganache-topped fudge brownies, so I thought peanut butter cookies would be a good option. I didn’t want to spend all day baking, so I opted to make only 8! And they are quite large. Instead of topping them with melted milk chocolate, I sprinkled them with sugar.

Reminders 1) spoon your flour from your flour container into your measuring cup, 2) chill the mounds of dough for a few hours before baking So the cookies don’t spread, 3) preheat your oven to 400 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so your oven cycles to the right temperature.

  • Ingredients
  • 10 tbs butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Extra sugar

Directions – cream butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. I actually used my hands to completely make sure the dough was blended together. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each in sugar. Store in fridge for a few hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners, stagger cookies. Bake 10 to 13 minutes (there will be light golden patches on top and bottoms will be a light golden color). Cool completely and store in covered container.

I think Gracie had some of this cookie!
