I'm in an everlasting battle of craving cookies and wanting skinnier hips.
While on weekdays the skinny hips do sound much much better, on the lazy weekends when all I do is chill out, cookies just win. Even though, I try to contain myself so I don't eat the entire batch in one sitting, I am still a cookie fanatic.
And as a fanatic, I am incredibly picky when it comes to my cookies! I mean, if you're already giving in the temptation and the desire to have smaller thighs, then at least sin with something that's worth sinning!
Am I right or am I right? ;)
So when I want to eat the little sugar bombs, I have specific expectations. First of all, I want my cookies to be crunchy. I want crumbles when I bite into one, I want the exciting texture that makes crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside cookies. I want toasted walnuts, I want the richness that the chocolate chunks add, I want a bit saltiness and most of all, I want that after I finish it, I feel absolute contentness.
And that is exactly what this recipe gives you. I altered the original recipe a bit, as I added a bit less butter, I also browned it for an even richer taste, less sugar, more salt and voila; awesome cookies!!
They got a bit darker in color but that's due to my horrible impatience. I just couldn't wait for the butter to cool down and I mixed in the warm butter with all the other ingredients and thus the chocolate melted a bit. Oh well! But if you like paler ones, just be patient and wait until the butter completely cools down or if you want even better texture, just put it in the fridge and wait until it solidifies again.
Hope you'll love them as much as we do!
I Wanna Marry You Cookies
adapted from Cooking channel
200 grams butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 + 1/4 cups bread flour
1 cup oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chocolate chunks
3/4 cup toasted halved walnuts
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. When it's completely melted, just keep the heat on, it will bubble up but just keep on cooking it over low-medium heat. It will have a foam on top but don't worry just keep stirring and cooking. When the foam starts to evaporate, pay attention because from here, the butter browns quickly and can burn if you leave it on too long. So when you see brown specks at the bottom of the pan, then it's ready.
Cool the butter down, you can also place it in the fridge after it cooled so it becomes solid again.
After it's cool or solid, add in the sugars. Then the egg and the egg yolk.
In a different bowl, mix the flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together.
Incorporate the dry ingredients to the butter mixture.
Add in the chocolates and the walnuts. Form small balls with your hands and place them on a baking sheet, leaving some space for them to grow as they bake.
Bake them for 13 minutes on 175C.
