Comfort Eating - Gourmet Glow Style

I'm up for a little comfort eating at the moment and I felt I hadn't made a new button in a while, so I've done the proverbial two birds with one stone trick and come up with 'Gourmet Glow' for your culinary pleasure. You can thank me later.

WARNING: The following post is not safe for dieters, diabetics or those with heart disease. Read on at your own risk.

Did somebody say cookies? No? It was just in my head? Um... right... awkward.

Never fear, that can be remedied! You will all be saying coooookies when I'm through here... either that or lapsing in to a diabetic coma.

I honestly have no idea where I got this recipe from, but I know the first time I made them was in August 2009 (how is it I remember the month I ate cookies but have no idea of the date I got engaged? Priorities!). If you recognize where the original recipe came from let me know and I'll credit it - though one of the things I learned at AusBlogCon was that if you put a recipe in your own words you completely circumvent any copyright... which seems a bit unfair to me, but for the purposes of these cookies, suits me very well.

The Best Ever Gooey Glowy Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 2 1/4 cups plain flour
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar (I know, two different kinds of sugar! Awesome, right?)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • Extra chocolate chips for decorating (Cos 1 1/2 cups is never enough)
You can feel your arteries hardening already, can't you?
  • Preheat your oven to 180C or 160C fan forced
  • In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt with a wire whisk and set aside
  • With a mixer, cream the butter and both sugars
    Heart attack, anyone?
  • Add in eggs and vanilla, then beat it, baby
  • Add half the flour mix, beat, add the other half, beat (Or just dump it in one lot if you're lazy like me)
  • Stir in chocolate chips while eating a few
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop the cookie dough out on to a baking sheet in to balls about 5cm apart - they spread like crazy 
  • Bake for 6 minutes then take them out and put the rest of the choc chips on, to make them purrrdy
    Right side has extra to make it look nicer
  • Bake for a further 6-8 minutes
  • Remove and let them cool on a wire rack (or burn your mouth eating them straight away)
Always with milk
 Or if you're able to share the goodness, wrap 'em up and you'll have a friend for life
I could only share six
If you have a go at making these let me know, you could even post a picture up on the Where's My Glow? Facebook page if you're feeling brave!

  1. Yeah, I dump everything in too :)

  2. YummO, You are so divinely domesticated! I want cookies............ xx

  3. So glad I'm not a dieter, diabetic or have heart disease! And sharing? Hmmmm, might have to make a double batch instead!

  4. nom nom nom nom nom.... sorry what? Owh... thanks for sharing the recipe. I shall now continue to lick the screen. bye.

  5. oh well maybe just the one...batch! nom nom nom!
    it seems everyone loves choc chip cookies and will be unable to think of anything else all day long now!
    i have a similar recipe that i just love - my 'make it healthy' thing is to put in dried cranberries with dark choc chips (i know! so not healthy right? but it's FRUIT!!!! adding fruit makes anything healthy doesn't it?.... doesn't it????)

  6. Oooooh, they look good. I love gooey cookies!

  7. yum yum yum

    however i am not sure i should bake or eat these any time soon, having just consumed 4 hot cross buns for lunch

    comfort eating yes, but there is nothing comfortable about afterwards

    Gill xo

  8. oh but yes i could give them away instead of eating them myself

    that's probably not going to happen though!

  9. now make them with white chocolate chips and I might have to marry you - or adopt you - I'm not bothered which as long as you make the bloody cookies

  10. Oh, my kids love chocolate chip cookies. (Okay biscuits, but cookies always sound more sinful. Being Americanised and all).

  11. This is a truly evil post! Yummo.

  12. Who doesn't love a chocolate chip cookie? Yours look awesome. Thanks for linking up.
