My little sports car (rear-wheel drive) got stuck in the snow in front of my neighbor’s driveway while coming home from work last Thursday. Since I grew up in Indiana, that’s not a new experience for me. But in Texas??? We had record snowfall that day–9 inches at my house.
So I walked home.
I called my husband/hero who promptly arrived to rescue my car. He rounded up all the males in our cul-de-sac. After some trouble, they got it unstuck. In gratitude, he spontaneously promised all of them homemade cookies.
Lucky for me, I had dough balls for these chocolate chip cookies in the freezer. I knew I wanted to make them fancy so I left out half of the chopped chocolate knowing I would dip them in more chocolate after they were baked.
I baked the first tray immediately after mixing the dough. They spread like crazy and were very thin and crispy. I tried to decorate them with a back and forth squiggle of chocolate but quickly discovered the error of my ways. I couldn’t eat them without getting chocolate on my fingers and they were too big for one bite.
I baked the second tray from a frozen state and made them half as big. Better!
While not my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, they turned out quite tasty and irresistible. Made a great thank-you for all my helpful neighbors.
