Carolynn's chocolate chip cookies


This was the name written in The martha Stewart book which I got from my sis when hubby went to visit her and her family. It seeme Martha got her recipe from a famous food writter Carolynn and that is why she named them after her.
Must admit this is one of the best chocolate chip cookies i have ever had, they were really yumm.

Before I go to the recipe, I have to mention that few of my blogg reading friends have mentioned that when ever they come to my bog there is a add popping up. I have no idea why it is , I have not joined up in any add programmes, If any one have a clue how to get ridd of this problem just mention in the comment section.
Funny thing is when i go to my blog from my computer it doesn't happen.



Makes 30.
2 cups plus 2 tbsp of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup ( 2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup plus 2 tbsp of firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar ( I didn't use as I thought if i add too much sugar the cookies will be too sweet)
1 large whole egg
1 large egg yolk
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chip ( I used chocolate which i cut into chunks)
1 cup toasted walnuts broken into large pieces ( optional)

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour , salt and baking soda, set aside.
In a medium sauce pan over medium heat , melt the butter. Turen off the heat and add both teh sugars, whisk untill combined.


Transfer the mixture into a medium bowl and let it cool to room temperature.

2. Whisk the egg, egg yolk and the vanilla into the butter mixture. Fold in the reserved flour mixture untill just combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts. Wrap the dough in plastic and chill untill firm about 30 minutes.

3. Preheat the oven to 325°F . Using 2 large spoons ( iused a ice cream scoper) place golf ball size mounds of dough 3 inches apart on baking sheet.
Bake untill the cookies are golden brown and the tops no longer look wet almost 12 to 15 . minutes.

Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet 5 minutes, transfer to a wire rack.
Let cool completly before serving.




Edited later
A big thankyou to Cham of
Spice club for figuring out what the trouble was. She told me too remove all the widgets which i did , i removed all of them and now there is no more pop up.

Sending this to which is hosted by Porrnima in her place Tasty Treats.

As far I know about popping ads, It is from long time.
I may suggest something: Try to remove all ur widgets. And test by adding one by one.
But as u cannot see any pop up in ur syst, It gonna be little difficult. But not really sure if it will works.
The cookies with choco chips are really yummy!

Purva Desai said...

HC I ve not experienced any adds popping up on my screen when I visited ur comment section. I feel the problem is not with your site but with the visitors Internet Browsers, suggest the visitors to block the Pop up window, there is an option in all the browsers to block the pop up windows.

Cookies look gorgeous and lip smacking dear

Cham said...

Did u had sitemeter? If yes, u can add that widget which is really helpful to track down who comes and goes...sometimes to track down some nasty comments!
They are pretty safe to use :)

Cham said...

www. sitemeter.com I don't know if u ve already had it in ur widget! But I would recommend it to place it! All bloggers have it! It is free & safe!
About the pop up I guess only one widget should have done it!

bee said...
