Musing on food and cooking ...

So I am just getting this blog going. It will take a while to get there! but just a little tease to get you started.... here is my recipe for some of the best cookies ever ...

Godivas

This recipe is a happy accident. One Thanksgiving, I was housesitting for a friend and was baking cookies. Sadly, I had left my vanilla at home, and my friend had none in the house. I did have some Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, however, and so substituted it. Fabulous!

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 shots Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 packet chocolate chips of your choice

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a large bowl. Add in egg and Godiva.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients. Combine well. Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop cookie dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the cookies are nicely browned around the edges. Bake for a little longer for crisper cookies.

I am pretty sure I could eat at least 10 Godiva truffles in one day.

Chris bought me a box for Christmas (due to constant pleading, not any sort of romantic gesture) and for a week straight I ate one for breakfast everyday.

So these cookies would probably be bad news for me.
