Ever walk into someone’s house and the smell of baked goods fills the air? I remember always walking into my Grandma’s house when I was young, and the smell of her cookies made me so happy, I actually felt safe and at peace ….. just from a chocolate chip cookie!
Now, fast forward 20 plus years, and my home (usually) smells the same way! It does help that I have a slight obsession with baking, but my husband and guests have never complained.
This is an AMAZING cookie! My family loves them. The wonderful combination of sweet
and salty mixes together to make happiness in your mouth!.
It was actually a mistake that turned into a brilliant recipe! One of my children was helping me bake, and of course her hand hit mine just as I was putting the salt in. After we tasted them when they were out of the oven, we all agreed that the slipping of the hand was a ‘great mistake’!!. I re-did the recipe as such.
- 1 Cup butter
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar
- 1/2 Cup organic sugar cane
- 2 eggs
- 1 Cup Spelt flour
- 1 Cup All purpose flour
- 2 Cups oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- dash of cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt (maybe a pinch more if you like)
- 1 Cup of chocolate or carob chips
Preheat oven to 350′. Mix all wet ingredients, and then mix in dry ingredients. Form into balls, and then press down on cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, you want them lightly browned. You still want them to be soft and chewy though, so watch them. Add more chocolate or carob chips if desired, and even go as far as sprinkling a bit of the sea salt on top!
So, go ahead, and bake a wonderful chocolate chip cookie. Sit back, relax with a cup of coffee, and enjoy the smell of your home.
