The Best Dough

If you like cookie dough...this is the recipe for you. This is the best raw cookie dough I've ever eaten. I'm not a huge cookie dough person either. I don't know what it is, but freakin' yUm!

The original recipe is from Everyday Baking--Martha Stewart. The only thing I'd do different is no raisins. Just make it a plain ole chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Ingredients

2 1/2 cups ap flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp b. powder
1/2 tsp b. soda
2 sticks butter, room temp
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp light corn syrup (maybe this is what makes them so good)
1 Tbsp vanilla ext.
2 large eggs, room temp if possible
1-2 cups chocolate chips (I lean toward the 2 cups)
1/2 cups oats, optional

Directions

1. Oven to 375.
2. Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
3. With mixer, combine butter, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla till light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time till well incorporated. Gradually beat flour mixture in.
4. Fold in choco chips and any other "extras."
5. Drop 2-inch balls of dough, spaced 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
6. Bake 12-16 minutes, flipping around halfway through. (Mine took 6 minutes and 6 minutes.) Don't overcook or you will be sorry!
7. Cool 5 minutes on sheets; transfer to wire rack and cool, unless you wanna scarf them all down while the next batch cooks.

This is the sign of a good chocolate chip cookie...it's how I decide which cookies I wanna eat. The more stuff you can see on the bottom, the better.
These cookies go down hill after the first day. So only make as many as you need. Freeze the rest or eat the dough.

  2. You will not be sorry. Just remember that after the first day, the cookies start tasting funny. Fresh out of the oven though...GOOD.
