martha’s thin and crispy chocolate chip cookie

happy national chocolate chip cookie day!!

(a day late)

did you know that existed?

i didn’t and i’m kinda unsure why that is. i mean i know all about pie day. and then ice cream ups everyone with an entire MONTH dedicated to its cool self. but national chocolate chip cookie day?! i was totally unaware of this until yesterday…. which is officially national chocolate chip cookie day. also the day i was going to make martha’s thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies. so now i’m a day late and dollar short to the national chocolate chip cookie day party but i do show up bearing gifts.

see i originally planned to make all my martha’s cookie madness cookies on sunday so i can bring them to work monday. well seeing as sunday was mother’s day and i was busy showing my mom some fried chicken love (recipe coming soon!), i didn’t make the cookies then. (which apparently didn’t work out too well for one of the guys i work with who was thinking he could have cookies for breakfast – sorry!) and then i was going to make them monday after i volunteered at a golf tournament but apparently sitting under a tent all day at hole numero 7 whips your behind and i crashed out at 9P.

so that brings me to yesterday….

national chocolate chip cookie day.

well i may not have had them to post ON national chocolate chip cookie day BUUUUUT i did make them on the correct day. that has to count for something right?

martha’s thin and crispy chocolate chip cookie

  • 1 1/4 c (2 1/2 sticks) softened, unsalted butter
  • 3/4 c light brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 1/4 c water – I KNOW! weird.
  • 2 1/4 c flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. preheat oven to 350F. line your baking sheets with parchment or a silpat.
  2. whisk together the flour and baking soda in a bowl. set aside.
  3. cream together butter, sugars and salt until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. add vanilla, eggs and water; mix until well combined. slowly add flour and baking soda mixture until just combined. stir in your chocolate chips.
  4. using your cookie scoop, scoop out the cookie dough into balls about 2 in apart. bake cookies, rotating halfway – martha says to cookie for 20-25 min but mine only took 12. let cool on the baking sheet 1-2 min before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

next food holiday, i’ll hopefully be a little more prepared.

but i have some exciting things coming soon so i think that makes up for it….

kisses.
