Double Chocolate Chip Cookies



How to improve upon the perfect dessert, the classic chocolate chip cookie? Make it ore chocolatey! In cases such as these, more is more. 

These cookies scream for milk; before to pour yourself a cold glass and dig into a warm cookie right off the baking sheet. It will be oh-so-ooey-gooey, chocolatey and buttery. Sheer perfection, to steal a Great British Bake Off saying. 

If you reserve half your dough in the fridge for a next day bake, you will notice that the cookie inexplicably tastes better. The flavors of the batter meld together overnight and create an even more delicious cookie. However, I always make a batch right away since I need instant gratification.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 /14 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks softened butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Method:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

Beat the butter, sugars and vanilla extract together until light and creamy. Beat in one egg at a time until well-combined. Gradually stir in the flour, then fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheets.


Bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes until the cookies are puffed. Cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. If you can!

Raspberry Pomegranate Jam

Tis the season to be making homemade gifts! Pomegranates are in season and their juice is a festive deep ruby red color. I knew I had to make them into a jam to give away. Straight pomegranate flavor is a little tart for me; I added raspberries for the texture of their seeds and their sweetness. This is a very simple recipe to make and will yield 6 to 7 8 ounces jars of jam or 12 to 14 4 ounce jars, if you like to give away sample sizes during the holidays. Enjoy! Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups pomegranate juice 1 cup mashed raspberries 7 cups sugar 1 tablespoon butter 1 1/75 ounce package Sure Jell Method: Sterilize your jars and lids. Set aside. In a heavy bottomed large stock pot, add the pomegranate juice, raspberries and butter. Mix well. Add in the sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil then stir in the Sure Jell. Allow to boil hard for 1 minutes. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam. Ladle into the sterile jars, twist on the lids and pr

Copycat Star Crunch

I really love Little Debbie snacks but I very rarely have them. I don’t like eating things that are full of unpronounceable ingredients and preservatives. Plus, I greatly prefer to make things myself. My favorites have to be Oatmeal Creme Pies and Star Crunch. I am still looking for a perfect Oatmeal Creme Pie copycat recipe, but this recipe for Star Crunch is absolutely perfect. These cookies are a fantastic combination of caramel, chocolate, and crunchy crisped rice cereal. They keep in a sealed container for a week, or in the fridge for a month. Next time you crave  Little Debbie Star Crunch, try your hand at making your own! Ingredients: Recipe Credit: Adapted from Stella Parks 1/2 cup water 1 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon vanilla paste 3 ounces of milk chocolate chips (use a chocolate for baking; some versions of “eating” chocolate contain too much fat. When your combine this chocolate and the caramel together, the

Peek-a-boo Squares

My grandma, Mimi, taught me this recipe. I used to make this with her and my mother as a child. It is my very favorite dessert. It is incredibly easy to make, and even easier to eat. My favorite part of making this as a child was dusting every bar generously with snowy white powdered sugar.  My favorite version of this dessert uses canned blueberry pie filling; I vastly prefer Libby brand over the store brand. You can make blueberry pie filling from scratch with sugar, cornstarch, bleberries, etc. but using the canned stuff is easy in a pinch and is much for nostalgic for me. Plus, I don’t notice a vast improvement over my homemade blueberry pie filling and the Libby brand; it just takes me longer to put this dessert together.  I have been known to whip up a pan of these Friday night and have them disappear by Saturday afternoon. Be warned, these things are addictive! Ingredients: 3 cups of all-purpose flour 2 cups of granulated sugar 4 eggs 2 sticks of
