Kate’s TOP SECRET Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know there are like a bazillion recipes for Chocolate Chip Cookies out there. Everyone seems to have their own twist, and mine is using no white sugar. This makes them a little butterscotchy. I’ve had a request from a few of my friends here in Italy for the recipe that made me famous around the office, and BOY HOWDY will they be surprised! There are a few ingredients that I don’t think they will expect. Just a warning, the dough WILL BE CRUMBLY. For chewy cookies, this is important. And for a few of my friends who can’t handle milk, this recipe has very little dairy. Fudging and eating a cookie or three won’t hurtcha any.

For Kate’s TOP SECRET Chocolate Chip Cookies, heres whatcha need:

1 1/4 cups of Flour
1 cup of Brown Sugar
1 Cup of Oil
1 packet of Vanilla Pudding Mix (Half Packet in the USA)
1 Large Egg
1 tsp of Baking Powder (or 1/2 bustina of Lievito per Dolci)
1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips
A pinch of Salt
A drizzle of Lemon Juice

Put all of your dry ingredients (Flour, Baking Powder, Brown Sugar, Salt) into a big bowl. Use your hand to mix them together and get all the chunks out.

Make yourself the Pit of Sarlacc (See, again, Return of the Jedi) and pour in your liquids (Oil, Egg, Lemon Juice).

Mix everything together with a spoon until it all comes together. Add in your Chocolate Chips and use your hand to mix them in. This will make the dough a little smoother and hold together better. ATTENTION: THE DOUGH WILL BE CRUMBLY. DON’T PANIC. PLEASE RELOCATE YOUR TOWEL AND CALM DOWN! (See The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)

Cover a cookie sheet with Wax Paper. Use a couple of spoons to press together perfectly round cookies. This will keep the dough from falling apart on the sheet.

Slide your cookie off the spoon and onto the wax paper. Depending on how big you make your cookies, you should be able to get from 8 to 12 cookies on your sheet.

Put your cookies into a 350° oven for 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them after 8 minutes so they don’t burn. At this point, feel free to waste those 8 minutes in a large sweater, dirty apron, and red face from the hot oven while playing Psychobilly Freakout on Hard (See Guitar Hero 2 and/or 5).

Take your cookies out of the oven and let them cool until they’re no longer brittle.

And there you have it! Feel free to add nuts or replace the chocolate chips with M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces. 😀

    Hey Kate, it’s been some time since I made some bomb cookies, so I’ll be making these in the near future.

    Couple questions…

    As far as the pudding mix goes, a volume measurement would be helpful, and your instructions don’t specify if it’s added with the rest of the dry ingredients, but I assume it is.

    Also replacing all of the sugar with nothing but brown sugar is news to me, my Grandmother’s old recipe has both brown and white in it. I guess that’s not really a question, just an observation.

    Keep Cookin’!

      Ahhh! Yes. Well, see there in lies the issue. Between Italy and the USA, pudding mix is very different. In Italy, one packet is only about 1/3 of a cup. In the states, a packet of Jell-O Pudding mix is almost a full cup. The yield after cooked is the same amount, but you don’t want to dry the dough out too much by adding a whole packet of Jell-O Pudding Mix, so a half of a packet should be fine. Since your Jell-O Mix is Dry, it should go with the Dry ingredients and be mixed in by hand. I thought I mentioned that but I suppose a little editing never hurt anyone! I hope I answered your question!
      As for all brown sugar, I got that trick from making Blondies (Blond Brownies). The result is a very butterscotchy, chewy cookie. Half and Half Brown and White sugar will work just fine, but I prefer the outcome of just the Brown variety.

      Thanks for your interest!

    Ok, I gotta try them at home. Especially the Guitar Hero part. I don’t think they’d be the same without it. U_U
