It should come as no surprise to you that chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite desserts ever. When Kristina posted these cookies over on SpaBettie, I knew I had to make them. You can find the recipe here.
Please note: she also uses this recipe to make golden Oreo stuffed cookies (hence the name of her post) I did not make the Oreo stuffed version. I did that once already. (here) Although, these do look like a delicious take on the cookie stuffed cookie idea.
The only thing I changed about the recipe was instead of chopping up a bar of dark chocolate, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. I am not much of a dark chocolate person to begin with – and I already had the semi-sweet chips on hand.
These cookies turned out really delicious! In fact, they might be the only cookies that I thought got BETTER as they cooled. Usually I am one for softer cookies, and once they harden they aren’t as good. These didn’t really get harder once they cooled – making them even better!
Ease: A, a pretty basic cookie recipe.
Taste: A+, really good! Definitely some of my favorite cookies that I’ve made in a while!
Would I make them again? I think so. I’d like to make them with mint chips instead of the semi-sweet – I think that would be delicious as well!
So many fun things going on in Madison this weekend that I may or may not find time in between yoga and house/yard cleaning to do:
Saturday April 16 – Customer Appreciation Day at The Vinery! If you aren’t familiar, The Vinery is a glass studio off of Verona Rd in Madison. They are having lots of demos, door prizes and food! The best part? Its FREE!
Saturday April 16 – Isthmus Green Day at the Monona Terrace! I haven’t been to this before, but it looks interesting. There are supposed to be over 100 exhibitors and a bunch of different speakers. Bring a donation for Goodwill and get in for FREE!
Saturday April 16 – Hand Stamping Metal Jewelry Workshop at Glitter Workshop from 10-1! Apparently there is also a bake sale there that day too! The metal stamping workshop does cost $8-9 but you get an awesome handmade piece of jewelry to take home with you!
Saturday April 16 – The first summer DANE COUNTY FARMERS MARKET on the square! It runs from 6am – 2pm
Sunday April 17 – Capital Brewery in Middleton is celebrating 25 years with an open house from 1-5!
