Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last night I made two recipes to review.  I am reviewing the Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies today, and the Parker House Rolls tomorrow.

Recipe:  1 box walnut brownie mix, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of oil, 1 cup chocolate chips.

Mix together, put in refrigerator for up to an hour.  Roll heaping teaspoon into a ball and put on ungreased cookie sheet or silpat (my favorite).  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes.

These are my families favorite cookies.  I have been making them for over 30 years and do not even know where I originally got the recipe.

I had to change the recipe because, just like other foods, brownie mixes are now smaller than they were previously.  Doesn’t this really irritate you?  Like soup and toilet paper? I didn’t realize that and had used the two eggs.  I noticed they were much more liquidy (is that a word?) than ever before.  No biggy though, I just added some flour to get the correct consistency.   Originally they would make a 9 inch square pan, now they make only an 8 inch square.  If you find a brownie mix that makes a 9 inch square, use two eggs.

Do not overcook, they should look kind of shiny and not quite done.  Let cool for five minutes before plating.



2 Recipes tonight: Parker House Rolls and Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been dying to use my Kitchen-aid mixer to make bread.  Since I still have had no recipes submitted to me to make, I found a recipe.  (Boy I hate searching for recipes!)  Reminder: send me a recipe you want me to try.  If I can get the ingredients, I will make it and review it for you.

The recipe I chose to make tonight is for Bobby Flay’s (who doesn’t love Bobby?) Parker House Rolls.  Yum.  It’s not even 10 am and I am now salivating just thinking about those rolls!  Hope I can hold out making them until afternoon so that I can have them with dinner.

If you are interested in the recipe, it is from the Food Network and is called Bobby Flay’s Parker House Rolls.

I am also going to make a recipe I have been using for over 35 years for Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I don’t remember where I got this recipe, but they are delicious!  I have had people call me from other states asking for this recipe.  It is so easy, has few ingredients, and they are delicious.  I may have to tape my mouth shut in order to not eat them all myself!

Remember, send me those recipes!  Also, share my new blog.
