no, there is nothing involving olives in these cookies, but they are a peace offering at work for a group that has been doing a whole lot for me, and i have inadvertently ruffled the feathers of. i won’t get into the situation, but it isn’t good, and cookies certainly won’t fix it, but baked goods are a good compliment to a thank you card in my humble opinion.
i have made a lot of chocolate chip cookies in my day and as you have seen, i have tried some new recipes in the recent months, so i continued with that and looked for a variation similar to the soft and chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies i made last year. the key was the corn syrup and brown sugar, so those were my requirements. and now, we wait to see if they are good enough to create some smiles…
Recipe from chefmichaelsmith:
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together and set aside.
Using a stand mixer or a food processor, cream the butter and sugar together until smooth. If you don’t have a stand mixer, beat vigorously by hand in a large mixing bowl.
Add the corn syrup, egg and vanilla and continue beating until well combined. Scrape down the bowl and gradually add the flour mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a spoon, scoop out a ball of the dough, roll it for a moment in your hands and then drop it onto a lightly greased cookie tray. Slightly flatten the balls but leave lots of room in between to allow the cookies room to expand.
For a soft, chewy cookie, bake for exactly 12 minutes. For a cookie with a bit of crispy crunch, bake for exactly 15 minutes.
Cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then remove and cool further.
