My girlfriends Ellen and Lindsey came over last night to watch the Bachelor with me, and we’re in love with it! Lindsey wanted to make monster cookies, so we altered a recipe that I already have of Catch-a-man 3 chip cookies and used a cupcake 1″ baking scoop to make these huge, delicious cookies. They were appropriate for the Bachelor – this recipe is one that you, according to the superstition around my family with it, give to a man that you have maybe a crush on. And I kind of have a crush on Brad Womack, not going to lie.
Catch-a-man 3-chip cookies
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups (three sticks) butter, softened
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 cpu brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup premier white chocolate morsels
- optional: 1 cup chopped nuts
Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and, if you wish, nuts. Drop dough by 1/4 cup measuring cup or a 1″ baking scoop 2 inches (or three fingers) apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. Yields about two dozen cookies.
What I love about this recipe is that you can mix and match how much you want of milk chocolate if you want a creamier cookie or a more bitter with more semi-sweet morsels. For example, I had about 1 cup of white chocolate chips and about 1/2 cup of semi-sweet and milk chocolate morsels because I’m obsessed with white chocolate right now. Delicious! I’m going to be baking a lot today because I’m snowed in, so look forward to more posts.
