So I went with this recipe because I wanted to use what I had on hand – and we ran out of the chocolate hazelnut drops. Holy crap these were so good! Definitely not your average chocolate chip cookie. Add these to your gourmet cookie box collection – that’s my goal, you know!
1 c butter, softened
scant 3/4 c superfine sugar
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
2 tsp orange extract
2.5 c flour
generous 1/2 c semisweet chocolate chips
1.5 tbsp each superfine sugar and ground cinammon
1. Preheat oven to 375 and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. Beat your butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon until well combined then beat in egg yolk and extract. Sift together your flour and pinch of salt into the mixture and add the chocolate chips. Stir until thoroughly combined. Keep in mind the batter may be somewhat crumbly.
3. For the coating, mix your tbsps of sugar and cinnmmon. Scoop out dough by tablespoons and form into balls and roll them in the coating. Place on your cookie sheets spaced well apart.
4. Bake for 12-15 mins and let cool on cookie sheets for 5-10. Then transfer to wire racks with metal spatula. Makes 30.
Enjoy these as much as I have =D
