Whopper Cookies

This recipe comes from a text Erik sent me (probably a month ago) saying that I HAD to make these cookies and how good they were. Well, he’ll be here in 3 days, and he wasn’t wrong – I just hope there’s still some left when he gets here!

First, melt some butter. And by some, I mean quite a bit.

Next, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, and brown sugar until no lumps remain.

Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk to combine.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until incorporated.

Fold in the whoppers and chocolate chips.

Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but really as long as you want. For example, as long as it takes you to go put a good dent in the diligence you’re responsible for.

Then, roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 325°F for about 10 minutes. They will NOT look done. Take them out, and let them cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes. While they’re cooling, push in some more chocolate chips for good measure.

they’ll settle down into less puffy versions of themselves.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!
