This is my first year joining in the Cookie Exchange. What a wonderful idea! Thanks to Jz for organizing this event.
Have made some of my cookie recipes since my kids were little. I only discovered Sweetie Pies about 10 or 12 years ago. They
quickly went to the top of the chart with our family, friends, and neighbors. These are also the favorite of my husband, Sam. He eats them off the counter before they can even cool. He has also been known to hoard these so that there are some left after the Christmas holidays.
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 3/4 cup)
1 stick salted butter, softened (1/2 cup)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 cup)
3 ounces white chocolate chips (1/2 cup)
1 and 1/2 ounces milk chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)
Yield: About 2 and 1/2 dozen (I always double this recipe!)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with wax paper.
- In the microwave, melt the unsweetened chocolate and the first batch of chocolate chips. Stir frequently with wooden spoon or wire whisk until creamy and smooth.
- Pour melted chocolate into a large bowl. Add butter and beat until thoroughly combined.
- Add the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat again until well blended. Scrape down sides of bowl.
- Add the flour and the 3 types of chocolate chips. Mix until just combined. Chips should be distributed equally throughout the dough.
- Roll a heaping tablespoon of dough into a ball, about 1.5 inches in diameter. Place dough balls onto paper-lined pans, 2 inches apart. With the palm of your hand, flatten each ball to 1/2 inch thickness.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer cookies with a spatula to a cool, flat surface. I stay closer to 10 minutes because they continue to firm up on the counter.
- Make yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy!
I am looking forward to finding some new cookie recipes this week. Thanks to all who participated.
And, of course, Have a Merry Little Christmas!
