Skillet-Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie Here in Nashville, there’s a certain low-frequency buzz. And if you’re quiet and listen very hard, you’ll hear the sounds that make up that buzz – the electronic bleeps of grocery cash registers ringing up hot chocolate and popcorn, the rumble of salt trucks and the fervently whispered prayers of thousands of kids (and their teachers) – because, OMG, SNOW IS IN THE FORECAST. Four inches. This Friday. To many of you, that’s nothing. You start with a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. Once the cookie has cooled, you’ll be able to invert it onto a plate or cutting board, and divide it into rich, cakey, chocolate-filled wedges. And remember, it’s not the size of the snow. Here’s to the Blizzard of 2010!

I have to admit, I hadn’t actually tasted my first strawberry shortcake until culinary school, about 4 years ago…I know….BUT I did grow up obsessed with the books, especially the scented ones that were also plastic with a sponge lining so you could take the book into the bath with you to smell and read it, which I now think are a little weird/creepy or maybe I’ve just been watching too much Law and Order: SVU lately….I digress. ANYWAY, I’ve been on a pretty big Greek yogurt kick lately… I mean, I’ve always had a thing for Greek yogurt, but I’ve recently become super into using it in my cooking/baking. These cookies are great, really! Strawberry Shortcake Cookies Makes 20-24 Directions: 1.

Aren’t mother’s supposed to send their children care packages, not the other way around? I never did mail a package to her, so instead I made them while I visited this weekend. It’s not quite the same as getting a box in the mail, but hopefully she’ll forgive me. I also took a few photographs of my new niece Rowan while I was there. I’ll try again when she’s a little happier with all of us.

My FAVORITE Chocolate Chip Cookie I have experimented with countless recipes searching for that perfect chocolate chip cookie. The characteristics of the perfect cookie are a very personal matter, and here are my preferences: texture: chewy w. medium thickness --- everyone has their preference, and this is mine! chocolate to cookie ratio: 50/50 --- I really enjoy having a lot of chocolate in every bite chips vs. chunks: chunks --- I like sizeable pieces of chocolate in my cookie. type of chocolate: bittersweet --- I like using Valrhona 61% extra bitter nuts or other add-ins: NONE!! With the above criteria in mind, this recipe is the closest I've come to experiencing CCC perfection. - Don't substitute the pastry and bread flours w. - Hand chopped chocolate chunks, NOT premade chips - I will purchase a hunk of the best bittersweet chocolate that I can afford and hand cut them into chunks. - Chill the cookie dough at least 24 hours (I let my dough sit anywhere from 2-3 days) before baking.
