Welcome to my recipe portion! Am I going to give you a background of why I started cooking? Fuck no. Am I going to give a long ass story before getting to the part that you’re all looking for? Fuck no. Am I going to post pics? Probably fucking not. Let’s get started.
This produced about 2 dozen cookies. I would block out about 30 minutes to make this. The prep is what takes the longest.
- -1 cup of unsalted butter – softened. HONESTLY leave it out at room temperature for a day. If you microwave it, it’s liquidity on the outside and still cold on the inside.
- -1 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar – packed
- -3/4 granulated sugar
- -2 large eggs
- -1 tsp vanilla extract + extra dash
- -2 cups of all purpose flour
- -1 tsp baking soda
- -1 tsp salt
- -1/2 tea of ground cinnamon
- -1 1/2 cup of rolled oats + more if you like really oat heavy cookies
- -1 1/2 cup to semi sweet chocolate chips + more if you like more chocolate chips
- -Sea salt for topping
- 1) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
- 2) In a large (I mean LARGE) mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer. Shouldn’t be much with it’s already softened.
- 3) Add in the sugars and vanilla extract and beat until creamy.
- 4) Add in eggs and continue to beat until mixed.
- 5) In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
- 6) Slowly add in the flour mixture to the butter mixture until they’re fully combined.
- 7) Using a spatula, stir in the oats until it’s mixed in well.
- 8) Do the same with the chocolate chips.
- 9) Drop spoonful (rounded) onto an ungreased baking sheet (mine is in between light and dark metal).
- 10) Leave a couple inches in-between because they spread.
- 11) Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly brown. LEAVE THEM A LITTLE UNDONE – this makes for softer cookies.
- 12) When you remove them, sprinkle sea salt on each before they cool.
- 13) Let me cool on a surface completely then immediately move them to an air tight container.
Biggest mistake people make with ALL cookies – cooking the cookies all the way through. They continue cooking when you pull them out of the oven so you’re actually over cooking them.
Leaving them out even after cooling – this makes them stale real quick.
Try this out for yourselves, Babes!
