Share it maybe – Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have you seen the youtube video from cookie monster?

You inner kid will love this one! I’m the eldest of 4, so as you can imagine, I watched more than my fair share of Sesame Street. There were a few iconic moments for me: For example, the “Hola means Hello” ballroom dance – my first experience with ballroom, which I followed up with a good dose of Fred Astaire, and finally a spot on the William & Mary Ballroom Team – go tribe!

The Swedish Chef: “Mmm yum-i-dy choc-o-late” was always a favourite (It’s still on my iPod these days). And then of course there’s Cookie Monster. C is one letter I was never going to forget. Why, you ask… Because C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me, oh C is for cookie that’s good enough for me, oh C is for cookie that’s good enough for me. Oh cookie cookie cookie starts with C! =D And now Sesame Street has done it again, taking the ubiquitous “Call Me Maybe” and turning it into “Share It Maybe”, a wonderful anthem to sharing and COOKIES.

To help you get into the spirit, I’ve made you yet another batch of cookies- the infamous Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookie, YUM! I made these for a games night with friends and I have to say, they compete with my previous favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 sticks butter (226g cold and cut into cubes)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (original recipe suggests half light half dark)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I used half white, half dark

Here’s what you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C).
  2. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, making sure they’re fully incorporated.
  3. Now add your dry ingredients to the bowl and mix them in. This makes a very thick dough. Finally fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop dough onto cookie sheet and form into balls. (I made a half batch and did 12 biggish cookies, but the original recipe says that a normal batch makes 12 – so at your discretion.)
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes (lightly brown), let cool and remove from cookies sheets. Inside should still be a bit doughy.

Enjoy =) … And share it maybe! Print Recipe

If you’re looking for a different chocolate chip cookie, Christi from Love from the Oven made a huge wonderful list to try. What’s your favourite cookie to share (or maybe to keep all to yourself)? Mine is the speculoos white chocolate surprise cookies that I threw inside a pie for Pi Day. Leave a comment and let me know.
