On the same night I roasted that chicken, I also wanted dessert and I had wanted to make chocolate cookies for the longest time. I finally used my Nestle chocolate powder, which I had also finally bought as a replacement for the Trader Joe’s chocolate powder, and made this recipe which I had stumbled upon recently for Homemade Oreos.
I’m not a huge fan of the filling for Oreos, so skipped that part, but the cookies turned out really well. I added an extra tablespoon of vanilla and a teaspoon of cinnamon. If you don’t have an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar, then add the vanilla and egg, and then the dry ingredients. Be sure to bake for no longer than 9 minutes, as even a minute more will cause these cookies to be too hard, but a minute less won’t hurt them.
The cookies really are wonderful to dip in milk and even keep their crunchy outside chewy inside texture for at least a day (they disappeared within 24 hours). To be fair, I probably ate about half of them. And, so I don’t seem like such a pig, I really earned them as I spent the entire baking time waving around a cutting board to keep our smoke detector from going off. I really hope we fix it soon, because I have two potatoes just waiting to be baked.
