I got a fun cookie book, bigfatcookies by Elinor Klivans, a couple weeks ago and finally gave a recipe a try. I have to say that I bought the book because of the fun layout and I also got its partner cupcake book for that same reason. But, as it turns out the recipies look great too, and so far I have made the Cookie in a Cookie recipe and loved it! First you make your chocolate chip cookies the normal way, then let them cool and crumble it into the rest of the cookie batter and back the final cookie.
Check out the batter before adding the bits of already baked cookie and after.
Here is the first round of baking, all smooth and pretty.
Then here is the final cookie all textured and twice as yummy!
I think these are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. Next time I am thinking of adding macadamia nuts! I love this book and can’t wait to try more of the cookies in it.
