Ahhhhh Cookie!

I do have to say that my husband can make a really good batch of chocolate chip cookies.  I'm not for sure why he started experimenting with the cooking process, but he did, and he found a method to make them taste great.  Generally he makes a batch of cookies, hides them in the fridge, and they are all gone within a few hours.  Like I mentioned before, we typically don't let the twins eat sweets.  Before they were two, it was pretty easy for us to sneak into the kitchen and eat a cookie without them knowing.  Now, they follow you around like vultures, limiting your ability to eat something you don't want them to see.

A few months ago, we noticed when we would sit on the couch with them to read stories or play, they would come up to our mouth, pry it open with their fingers, and say, "Ahhhhh Cookie!"  Yes, they are now big enough to realize we were sneaking cookies, and they know just what to say to get us to open up our mouth so they can search for cookies.

In case this entry is making you hungry, I am adding the recipe for Zach's Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I encourage you to read the instructions, as that is the secret to success.

Zach's Chocolate Chip Ahhhhh Cookies

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Brown the butter on the stove over medium-high heat.  A good indicator when the butter is beginning to brown is when it stops boiling and begins to froth.  Pour the hot butter into a mixing bowl.  Add brown sugar and stir and allow it to sit for precisely three minutes.  Stir again and let it sit for three minutes.  Add the baking soda and vanilla and let the mixture cool before you add the egg.  (or else the egg will cook)  Add the flour and chocolate chips and stir.  Roll into small balls and bake in a 350 degree pre-heated oven for exactly ten minutes and take out the pan.  Immediately place the cookies on a plate or cooling rack and place them in the fridge.  Store the cookies in the fridge.  Cookies are very tasty if warmed in the microwave for 10 seconds prior to eating.
