Sometimes you gotta do what ya gotta do

And yes, homemade chocolate chip cookies are something ya gotta do.

Everyone should experience hot, gooey cookies (or maybe just the dough) on a cold winter's evening.
MMM, even better with a cup of hot tea or coffee.

This is a must try recipe: so delicious, and if you your quick on your feet,
you can have 2 dozen cookies in the oven in under 10 minutes!

Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
12 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Melt the butter, and combine with the sugars using an electric mixer or by hand. Beat in the egg and egg yolk. Add the vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients, just till combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Make balls of dough around the size of 2 tablespoons and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes, or until very slightly golden brown.

One final tip for gooey cookies: use a baking stone, preferably manufactured by Pampered Chef.
