I must excuse myself for having severely neglected this poor little blog these past few months. With the hustle and bustle of summer, I simply haven’t had much time for cooking or baking. Now that the twilight of the season is upon us, howeve, my thoughts are returning once more to the kitchen.
Last week, I was able to throw together a nice batch of “wookie cookies.” A wookie cookie, if you’re curious, is really just a chocolate chip cookie (and not even a glorified one at that). The recipe is from a Star Wars cookbook that my sister and I couldn’t resist buying a few years back, hence the wookie title. It’s a solid recipe, and if you’re a geek (I am) the Star Warsy element makes it a lot more fun.
- 2 1/4 C flour
- 1 t baking soda
- 1 t salt
- 1 t ground cinnamon
- 1 C butter, at room temperature
- 1 C brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 C granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 t vanilla extract
- 2 C chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375°.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and stir well. Set aside.
Put the butter and sugars in a separate bowl and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until well-blended and creamy (about 3 minutes). Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and stir with a spoon until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
