"they melt in your mouth" (thats what she said)

ok, sorry... i couldnt help myself on that one.  but the quote is real and she really did say that :)

honey chocolate chip cookies

yes.  they are amazing.  you might not be ready for it....

i found this recipe and decided to make a little bit of a twist to it.  i really had been wanting to use the honey i had recently bought at the farmers market and thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
ingredients - 
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda (i didnt have baking soda so i used baking powder.  i used about 3 tsp)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup crisco (melted and cooled)
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup honey

in medium mixing bowl, mix sugars, crisco, eggs, honey and vanilla until combined.

in a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder until combined.  then add sugar mixture to the large bowl and fold into the flour mixture.  add chocolate chips until it looks amazing and you want to eat all the raw cookie dough :)

i let the dough cool for a few hours before baking it.  actually, in all honesty... this was the night amanda came over with her wine charms.  i let the dough sit for about 5 hours and then made the first batch.  (i only have one cookie sheet)  then i realized it was almost midnight and i needed to go to bed.  i ended up waking up at 6am (which came entirely too early) and made the rest of the cookies.

but, all in all.... it was worth it.  these cookies are pretty damn amazing and everyone at my work (and richards) ate them right up.  i will be using this recipe again because its a no fail kinda deal :)

  1. so, i guess i didnt tell you what temp to cook these at and for how long... sorry!!

    preheat oven to 400. as soon as you put the cookies in, turn down to 375. cook 10-12 mins.
