…were in order again, as we got a FANTASTIC new toy for Christmas–a Kitchen Aid stand mixer!  This has been an item on Schatzi’s and my wish list for quite some time, and his family was so kind to give us one this year.  Of course, new toys are nothing but a wonderful excuse to make a batch of cookies, so we made Food Network’s Chip Chubbies, which are fantastic.

For this chocolate chip cookie you need:

  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chunks

Beat the butter  and sugars until fluffy, then add in the egg yolks and vanilla.

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt, and add it to the butter mixture.  Fold in the chocolate chunks.

Roll the dough into one-inch balls and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven, until golden brown.

I have to admit, while these are indeed delicious cookies, I was a bit more keen on the original chocolate chip cookie recipe we made a few weeks ago.  Nonetheless, these are excellent and are a wonderful combination of sweet and salty.  They do come highly recommended, particularly when dunked in a glass of milk!
