Since that pregnancy I read the book CandyFreak by Steve Almond. If you haven't read this, shame on you. But I must warn you that it will probably turn you into a candy addict. So before I got pregnant this time, I made sure I could break my candy addiction. And I've done a pretty good job. I've bought candy here and there. But since last Easter, I haven't been buying bags of candy on each grocery trip. That was not a good habit, let me tell you.
But I'm totally addicted to sweets. If I wasn't out of eggs right now (and I hadn't JUST made cookies on Saturday) I would be baking a batch of these cookies right now. They are my latest addiction. So yummy!
(Totally not its real name, but I got the recipe from my sister in law and she didn't attach a name to them so I've just been calling them Heather's cookies. But it gets all weird if you call them Heather's cookies and you don't even know Heather. )
1 c. butter softened
3/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 bag Heath bar pieces (in baking aisle)
1 bag Chocolate chips
1/2 bag White chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375.
Soften butter in mixing bowl. Add brown sugar, sugar, egg and
Add flour, baking soda and salt. Mix 2 more minutes.
Add in Heath pieces, chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. It
seems like the ratio of stuff to dough is too high, but it works.
Scoop out w/the big scoop and flatten the balls. Cook
for 10-11 minutes. They still look really, really gooey. Let sit on
cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to cool. They'll set up
and finish cooking and be gooey in the middle.
Makes 24 w/the big scoop.
