Getting BAKED for Festivus! Happy Festivus! (“the festival for the rest of us”)
We shall begin with the Airing of Grievances…
“I’ve got a lot of problems with you people, and now you’re going to hear about it!”
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 squares unsweetened baker’s chocolate (shaved, not chipped)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 sticks butter (softened)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cup (semi-sweet) chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat baking sheet with cooking spray.
Mix flour, baker’s chocolate, baking soda and salt in medium bowl and set aside.
Mix (cream) the butter and both sugars until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.
Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture and mix well. Add the chocolate chips.
(substitute or add other flavored chips, nuts, M&Ms or other candy pieces if desired)
Roll the dough into 1-1/2 inch balls and place on cookie sheets. Press the dough down to about an inch thick with space between.
Bake 18 minutes or until they are not glossy. Cool and enjoy! Makes about 2 dozen.
