Best Chocolate Chip Cookies (an updated version of these)
3/4 c. coconut oil
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. bittersweet chocolate chips, or any combination of things to equal 1 cup (dried cranberries, coconut flakes, chopped dates, rolled oats, chocolate/white chocolate/butterscotch/peanut butter chips, etc)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together coconut oil and sugar until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.
Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips/other additions.
Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto a baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges (the tops will not brown, but do NOT cook longer than 10 minutes!).
Let cool on the sheet on a wire rack for five minutes. Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely. Makes approximately 3 dozen.
Ya'll. This girl started preschool! I may or may not have used these cookies as an incentive to let me get some first-day-of-school pictures.
She loves it!
Prepare yourself for a bit more preciousness. She finally fits in these teensy Chacos that have been in the "to-grow-into" box for two years.
Also, we just completed our first sewing project together: a ruler holder. Maybe you didn't know that rulers needed cases, but they do. Let us know if you need one for a measuring device you possess. She's really good at these.
So many first things! Good thing there are plenty of cookies for mommy ...
