We’ve all had them… You know what I’m talking about.
They’re the ones that keep you coming back for more. The ones that you dream about. The ones that you spend your entire adult life trying to find a recipe for, that… maybe… even kind of… compares.
They’re the biggest, fluffiest. tastiest, chocolate chip cookies… in the world.
For me, I had these “said cookies” when I was in high school, and anyone who went to school with me knows the cookies I’m talking about.
Cough cough… Katie Trainor’s famous chocolate chip cookies.
Anyhow, yes, I have spent most of my adult life trying to find a cookie recipe that even comes close to hers. Sad, but true. They were the perfect cookies.
In this post here, I told you that I was planning on bringing cookies to our labor and delivery nurses. So in the spirit of nesting, and being uber prepared, I set out to make the cookie dough for the perfect chocolate chip cookies, like the ones I had in high school. My plan was to make the dough, and then to freeze it in rounds that could be baked at a moment’s notice… once I do actually go into labor.
So dear friends, I spent Saturday morning making these cookies. The only issue is that hardly any of the dough got frozen because I baked most of them and then… they disappeared. :/ #pregnancyproblems
OH MY LAWDDD… they are amazing. I can take NO credit for this recipe, other than the hour I spent on Pinterest searching for it. But – let me tell you now, these cookies are to die for. Be careful. They are far from good for you, they are far from organic, but if you want a show stopper, fluffy, chocolate chip cookie recipe – see below!
As for my outfit… at 38 weeks, I’m a big fan of anything that is comfortable. So on Saturday morning, that consisted of my bathrobe and nightgown. Since it is finally spring, we’re loving everything floral, and this Plum Pretty Sugar robe is no exception.
In addition to the most perfect recipe, I’ve included some of my favorite floral pieces to add to your Spring wardrobe. I just bought this maxi – and I can’t wait to wear it!
Enjoy loves! XooX
Floral Pieces I love:
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies… In The World
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar – I used light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter – at room temp – let it sit out for at least 2-3 hours
1/2 cup butter flavored crisco
1 tsp vanilla – I added a little more 🙂
1 (3.4oz) package of INSTANT vanilla pudding – such a random ingredient… right? Anyhow, make sure it is the instant kind – or you’ve got problems!!!
1/2tsp salt (I think I’ll omit this next time)
1 tbsp baking soda
3 cups of flour
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl combine: sugars, butter and crisco and beat together. Next beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Now add in the vanilla pudding mix and incorporate.
In another bowl, combine the flour and baking soda. Once combined, add the flour mixture to your egg, sugar and butter mixture.
Add in chocolate chips and stir gently.
Roll into large balls and place on a cookie sheet.
Place in preheated oven and cook for just 10 min. No longer! Let cool on a cooling rack.
Try… just try… not to eat them all!
Hello! If you do freeze these, do you let them thaw before baking or bake them from frozen?
