Chocolate Recipes

SallyB's Chocolate Chip Cookies

I developed and refined this recipe over the years in an effort to satisfy my own taste buds, and discovered everyone loves it!

1/2 c. butter, softened
1-1/2 c. dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
dash of salt (bigger dash if you use unsalted butter)
1-1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. finely ground hazelnuts or hazelnut meal
1/4 c. oat flour
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips
1/2 c. white chocolate chips
1/2 c. chopped pecans

Cream butter with sugar. Add egg and vanilla and stir determinedly until well mixed. Combine dry ingredients and add to butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Dough should be very stiff and just a tiny bit sticky. Add more flour (wheat, oat or nut) or butter as necessary to achieve this state.

Form dough into balls slightly smaller than a golf ball and lay on cookie sheet. Bake at 375º for 8 minutes.

Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies, depending on how many samples were tested before baking.
