|W/ Bacon Fat|
There is just something satisfying about a homemade chocolate chip cookie. The entire process is comforting and warming (and not just because the oven is turned on). My family could (and would if I let them) just eat the dough without ever having it baked.
Chewy pieces of cookie with a chocolate chip in every bite.
Little pillows of yumminess!
Then I stumbled across Ross Sveback who has become my chocolate chip cookie guru.
First I find his recipe for chocolate chip cookies using rendered bacon fat as the shortening.
|W/ Sea Salt|
Then I find he has a Salted Chocolate Chip cookie recipe....and if that isn't good enough I finally learn (thanks to Mr. Sveback) that the trick to a chewy cookie is to let the batter sit overnight before baking!
Now I have beautiful chewy-sea-salted-dark-chocolate-chip cookies in my kitchen just asking for a cold glass of milk.
