Guys, I absolutely have to share these. Normally, I share recipes that I make in my own lil’ Chicago kitchen. I cook, I photograph, I process pictures, I write the post–and all this can take a little time to pull together. So in this case, I’m making an exception and completely scrapping the process, because I can’t wait to share these until the baking impulse hits me. Because then you’d be without this recipe for another month. Or two . . . or three. And, considering the cookies at hand, that delay would be unpardonable.
Veronica (from Veronica’s Cornucopia) is a wonderful blogger who I’ve been following for a long time. I never knew when I started blogging that I would start to actually care for the people that I interact with online, but it’s happened! Even though we have never met face to face, Veronica has become very dear to my heart. She blogs about cooking (with fabulous blue-ribbon winning recipes), life, marriage, and funny childhood stories. In other words . . . everything! Right up my alley, in case you hadn’t noticed the, um, name of my blog.
Anyway, Veronica recently did a giveaway on her blog, with the prize of a dozen of her blue-ribbon winning chocolate chip cookies. Destiny acted, and I was picked as the winner.
Thank you Veronica, and thank you destiny.
I am here to say: please follow this link. Please visit Veronica’s blog. And please make these cookies.
The day I received the package, I tore it open with glee. I was starved at this point in the afternoon, and my coffee was mighty lonesome with no sweet treat standing by.
That all changed as I opened the ziploc bag and consumed the first cookie.
Crisp and chewy all at once. A gloriously perfect proportion of chocolate chips. They look a little dry/crumbly in these pictures, but that’s just an illusion. Once you take a bite, they are soft inside and absolutely divine in flavor.
The ingredients include vinegar, ground up oatmeal, and brown butter, and these unusual components come together to form my idea of chocolate chip perfection, which I had assumed would take decades to find.
Please make them, and if you have a few minutes, stop by to say hi to Veronica. I wish I could share a bite with you all . . .
. . . then again, I think I’ll keep these all to myself.
Though I have no step by step pictures this time ’round, I’m not completely neglecting my duties, so here’s the printer-friendly version for you:
