I know, it's Wednesday, and this is my first post this week. DON'T YELL AT ME! It's been a particularly busy, crazy, difficult, incredible week. Yup, all of those things at once, and when a roller coaster of emotions occur in one week, you have to make cookies. Yeah it's a law. Subject change...
You know what I love about blogging? When I am sent new recipes from you fine people. A friend/reader emailed me a link to a very specific method for making chocolate chip cookies, and I was instantly fascinated. I know what you're thinking, how many chocolate chip cookie recipes are you going to bake on this blog?? Well the answer is eleventy infinity two. I am a preschooler.
Two things about these cookies:
1. They are the most professional looking cookies I've ever baked.
2. They were time consuming and a mess to make.
But worth it if you have the time. So what is this very specific method? Instead of dropping the cookies onto baking sheets, you roll out 3 different rectangles of refrigerated dough, and in between each layer you sprinkle gobs of chopped chocolate. You use a 2-inch round cutter to form your cookie shapes. AND you brush the tops with an egg wash for that beautiful golden crust you see above. Specific, professional, messy, WORTH IT.
You can find the recipe here.
