Made with Love

Three things of which I am certain:

1. Joy the Baker is a genius
2. Cookie dough for dinner is not always bad, and,

3. Chocolate chip cookies wrapped up with string will always put a smile on a friend’s face

When said friend* was particularly crushed, I hit up Joy for inspiration and whipped these up in my pajamas. Friends, I ate A LOT of dough. And, a word of warning: love heart cookie cutters may create nice shapes to begin with, but its a fact that they’ll spread and come out looking like this:

Here are Joy's.

{ Chocolate Chip Cookies }

125g unsalted butter

2 1/4 cups bread flour

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup raw sugar

1 1/4 cups brown sugar

1 egg

1 egg yolk

2 tablespoons milk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 160 degrees C. Melt the butter in microwave. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside. Pour the melted butter into large bowl. Add the raw sugar and brown sugar. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the egg, yolk, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough, then scoop onto paper-lined baking sheets. Bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown, checking the cookies after 5 minutes. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

* Said friend would like to say thank you so much for putting a smile on my dial and biccies in my belly. Lots of love pretty lady!
