Cookie Monsters Love...Cookies!

Cookie Recipe Kitchie Experiment

I hope everyone is having a great week. When arriving at my blog today I was so happy to find new followers AND comments, woot woot!

Since I have been stuck in the house, and not so active in the kitchie, I was feeling a little empty from lack of creative expression. Brenty-Boo went to the store to pick up a few ingredients for me to play with.

He has been requesting cookies, but not just any cookie, specifically the famous chocolate chip cookie. I think it's pretty safe to say that everyone likes chocolate chip cookies, right? I have made some really good cookies both raw and previously in my days of cooking. Cookies have always been one of my favourite snacky foods (you can call me the Cookie Monster) so I would like to think that I know a good cookie when I taste one ;) With Brent's desired request I took on the challenge for my darling....he deserves a cookie or two ;) I thought that this would be a good opportunity to try another recipe for my future ebook. I prefer soft and gooey cookies that I can eat shortly after preparing ;) They are one of those foods that I make when I want a sweet snack now! I love the dehydrator, but I don't have the patience to use it for everything. While a dehydrator is necessary for some recipes like crackers, I think many cookies can be made without dehydration, unless you want a crunchier texture. Although I have enjoyed many raw chocolate chip cookies, I have found some to be too sweet, too rich, or too oily. I put a lot of thought into these cookies because I knew exactly what I wanted the outcome to be; chewy, chunky...and just like raw cookie dough without the being overly rich. I think I accomplished my goal. My take on an old cookie recipe, revamped.

Classic Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Brent was very happy with the cookies.

I want to know, what's your favourite cookie?


  1. Amanda, those look so good...wish I could grab one from the puter!!

    Nice job!


  2. Hi Pam-Cakes,
    There were really good. The perfect comfort food indeed. Perhaps one day technology will allow you to "grab" a cookie from the puter screen, lol!

    Thanks! xoxo

    What? No recipe? Aw man! Looks so yummy. I wanted to try it out on my children.

  4. could you post the recipe

  5. Hi Nat & Anonymous:
    I was going to save this for my ebook...and I still will, but you know what, I don't want to leave you hanging so I will post the recipe :)

    You convinced me when you said you wanted to try the recipe for your kiddies, awww. I know it can be challenging to find yum-o recipes for the little ones that are healthy and tasty. All I ask is that you let me know how they like 'em :)
