Chocolate Chunk Cookies

August 5, 2017

To foodies, August 4th is a BIG day: why? It is NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DAY! Cookies are a wholesome and delightful treat that anyone, and everyone, enjoys. Plus, cookies make a very thoughtful unexpected gift for your neighbor, family, friends, or in my case, yoga teachers!

 

I like to add real chunky-chunks (yes, that a real foodie term) of dark chocolate on top of my cookies before baking.  This adds an extra does of sweetness. If you do not have chunks of dark chocolate lying around, the cookies will be still delicious without 'em.

 

 

Kimm's Chocolate Chunk Cookies:

Yields: 15 medium size cookies

Oven: 375 degrees F

Baking time: 16 mins

 

Ingredients needed:

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tsp fine sea salt and 1/4 tsp fine sea salt

1 tsp ground instant espresso (my secret weapon)

2 teaspoon cornstarch

1/2 cup unsalted butter, soften, cut into cubes 

1 egg and 1 egg yolk

16 oz chocolate chips (your favorite brand)

4 oz dark chocolate (your favorite brand)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts 

 

In kitchen aid mixer, with the paddle attachment, cream together until fluffy (about 10-ish minutes)

1/2 cup unsalted soften butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 teaspoon cornstarch

 

Mix together:

1 egg

1 egg yolk

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

-Slow add to butter-sugar mixture

 

Sift together:

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp fine sea salt

1 tsp ground instant espresso

-Add to mixture, and mix until just combine. Do not over mix!

 

-By hand, using a spatula, add and stir in:

16 oz chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped walnuts.

 

-Scoop cookies. I like using an ice-cream scoop for even portioning.  

-Place on parchment lined cookie sheets. 'Squish' the cookies down, thus making a small disk

-Chop 4 oz dark chocolate into small chunks. Place a few chunks on top of the cookie.

-Bake for 16 minutes, rotate cookie sheet half way. 

-Cool. Eat and enjoy!

 

Happy baking! Let me know how your cookies turn out!
