Did you know that May 15th was Chocolate Chip Cookie day??? The husband is mad at me because I was sick again… I get sick a lot … maybe I should drink more water so I stop getting kidney stones. Brazil’s hot climate is not conducive to my poor water drinking abilities. But I digress (I do that A LOT). I didn’t make these cookies yesterday, but I made them a week ago for our anniversary.
These are my friend Jessica’s cookies. They are addictive, I should warn you now. They have replaced both of my other “favorite” chocolate chip cookie recipes. See chocolate chip cookies, are like Brigadero in Brazil.. separate blog post on that when I get around to finally trying my hand at making it. The normal recipe is half white chocolate and half semi-sweet chocolate. Normally, I’m not a fan of white chocolate, but it adds a wonderful sweet vanilla flavor to the cookies, and I STRONGLY recommend it. My husband however is a fan of pure milk chocolate chips, and so as this latest batch was an anniversary gift to him.. his very own batch of cookies, made just the way he likes them, my recipe below is made with milk chocolate. I have made notes on my “Brasil adaptions” to the original recipe.
Jessica’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar (I mule it in, because I will only use C&H Sugar.. I’m from Hawaii after all!)
1 Tbsp. vanilla (I muled this into Brasil too, because it’s kind of expensive here)
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda (It’s called Feremente em Po here)
3 cups flour (add more as needed so the dough is no longer sticky)
1/2 bag of milk choco chips
