In The Mood For Chocolate Chip?

The first thing I will say is, THESE BABIES ARE GOOD!
* I know, bad joke*

My first experience with this recipe was almost two years ago when my friend Johnna sent me the most incredible box of cookies.  I was so surprised because not only were they chocolate chip, they were decorated! And to top it off, they were amazingly good!

The only problem was, she sent them to me on the very first day of one of my MANY diets.  So to  keep myself from eating them all I shared them with my friend Lori.

Since then, she has been begging me to make more.  When we got together to make cookies for our friend Jessica’s baby shower, I decided it was probably about time.  Poor Lori ONLY had to wait two years =)

Lucky for me, when Johnna sent my cookies, she sent me the recipe, {She’s sweet like that}  and she also mentioned that she had found it in the Sugarbakers’ Cookie Cutter Cookbook.  I was so impressed with this recipe, I decided to buy it!  It was worth the money. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes to bake cookies. 

I feel like I should mention, it’s not the book you’re looking for if it’s pictures you want to see. That aspect is actually pretty LAME.  However, it contains SEVERAL recipes, and so far, all of them that I have tried have been wonderful!




  • 1 c unsalted butter
  • 1/3c granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ c all-purpose flour {I think they got a little overzealous with the flour…try 2 cups first, and work your way up}
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ c semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips


  1. Cream together the butter and sugars. To that add the vanilla and egg yolk. Sift together the flour and salt, and add it one cup at a time until completely incorporated. Then, BY HAND fold in the chocolate chips. You can do it with your mixer, but it might break them up, so I would really just do it the old fashioned way.
  3. While you wait for the oven to warm, wrap your dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least thirty minutes. When it is chilled, roll out cookies on lightly floured parchment and bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes.
  4. These cookies roll and cut SO WELL!

The recipe is so good, it begs to be shared, and  I even spared you the the two year wait!
As for Jessica and baby Madden…I wish them health, an easy delivery, and all of the happiness in the world. I love little babies and the
pitter patter of tiny little feet =)

    HI! I tried this and the cookies came out great, I had to add another egg yolk and 1/4 cup of butter because the dough crumbled… is that supposed to happen? My cookies also got stuck and broke on the wax paper… what should I do differently?

    Hey, I want to bake these cookies I was wondering if you cut the cookies before you bake them, also are the cookies just as good without the icing?
