Today is National Cookie Day so everyone on the Mathew Blades In The Morning crew made cookies at home last night for a competition! The only requirement was, it must has chocolate chips! That is it!
To see who won, the Tim Ben and Brooke morning show including Barrel Boy from KNIX stopped by for a taste. And the winner was crowned - Priscilla! She made these giant cookies from Levain Bakery called Chocolate Chip Crush Cookies. Modern Honey posted the recipe!
In case you wanna try this at home, here is the recipe:
Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Crush Cookies
The BEST Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Copycat Cookie Recipe.
Author: Melissa Stadler, Modern Honey
Preheat oven to 410 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together cold cubed butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 4 minutes or until creamy.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one.
Stir in flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined to avoid overmixing. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Separate dough into large balls and place on lightly colored cookie sheet. They are bigger than you think! You will fit 4 cookies on one large cookie sheet. The dough makes 8 extra large cookies.
Bake for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown on the top. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes to set.
*can substitute all-purpose flour for cake flour
*Levain Bakery has stated they don't use vanilla extract in their cookies. If you would like to add vanilla extract, I would suggest adding 1 teaspoon when adding the eggs to the batter.
