The rules are simple: Each blogger that decides to play along finds a recipe (for the theme of the month) from another blogger. You can't use a recipe from a celebrity chef like Paula Deen, Taste of Home, etc. You can use a recipe of theirs if another blogger has it on their blog. It's just a nice way to highlight another bloggers blog and increase traffic to your blog and theirs. Everyone wins because people are going to all the blogs to check out the recipes. We all blog on the same day and time each month.
Well, lets get started!
I chose a recipe I found over on the blog A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock 'n Roll. The recipe intrigued me since you make the batter, refrigerate it overnight and bake the cookies the next day. I wondered if you'd be able to taste the molasses. I also used Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips just as she did.
The dough is very hard!
I weighed my dough. I wanted my cookies to be all the same size. Just a little anal I guess :)
Ready for the oven.
For the rest of the batches, I baked them for 16 minutes, then cool for 10 minutes. To me, these are darn near perfect! They have a little crunch but they're still doughy.
I would definitely recommend this recipe. In fact this will more than likely be my "go to" recipe when I want to make Chocolate Chip Cookies. I think they're wonderful!. I also believe that I have found "The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie" This recipe made 68 cookies (weighed at 1 ounce each) or a little over 5 dozen.
Overnight Chocolate Chip Cookies
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons molasses
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
12 ounces dark chocolate chips
Stir the dry ingredients together with a whisk and set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar together well. Add the molasses and then the eggs, mixing well. Add the vanilla. Then gradually add the dry ingredients. Stir chocolate chips into the cookie dough. Drop by teaspoonful onto a parchment lined sheet pan. Bake in a preheated, 350 degrees Fahrenheit, oven for about 8-9 minutes. After they've cooled for about 10 minutes on the cookie sheet. Remove them and continue cooling on a cooling rack.
