Have you ever had a hankering for a baked good, and you have all but ONE of the key ingredients? Well that’s the situation we found ourselves in on Saturday night. The hankering? Chocolate Chip Cookies. The missing piece? Brown sugar. Queue: the nearest iPhone. Gotta love technology. Just a few minutes on the interwebs and we found what we thought could be the winning recipe…and here it is:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/4 cup butter
Makes 36 cookies
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F
Cream the butter with the sugar and the honey. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips.
Place teaspoon sized dough about 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
The final result was a great-tasting-not-too-sweet chocolate chip cookie (being shown off by my lovely friend Morgan here). So next time you don’t have all the ingredients, don’t give up! Do a little research, you might be surprised by what you stumble upon!
