Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

chocochipcrisp1So I’m more of a cakey-cookie eater myself. But, Cakes, is not. Crispy on the outside, little chewy on the inside (and preferably store in the freezer) is how he takes his. It’s a Sunday and I’ve been out-of-town for work for the last week. I need some kitchen time. I banished him to the basement to watch football so the upstairs would be alllllll mine! TV muted, lappy-toppy propped in its place on the breakfast bar, Pandora/Swedish House Mafia Station: ON, volume cranked.

Wiggle, wiggle, rock.

Mixer powered up, oven preheated, butter and eggs ready at room temp. Oh man, have I been missing this for the last week. 30 minutes later, crispy-chewy chocolate chip cookies, thanks to Curvy Carrot. I didn’t alter this recipe much, but I’ll post the little changes I did make. She is a fantastic cook and blogger, check her out.

You’ll notice the pic of the x3 stacker below…I was snapping photos and just barely caught a glimpse of Cakes attempting to sneak out of the kitchen with something in his hand. I hollered at him to come back in the room, what do I see? He was using the stack-n-eat method for quicker inhalation. Idiot.

Clearly I didn’t have to beg him too hard to try them, let alone consume half the batch just after cooling.chocochipcrisp2
