Cookie Monster Visits the Borland House
This is a case of the disappearing cookies. Miss Marple, help! We always have home-made cookies and teas available to guests at any time. So, this week-end I made my Ghiradelli Double Chocolate cookies and put them in the dining room around 3:30. Nothing unusual about that. By 4:15 they had completely vanished, so I baked another batch and, once again, left them in the dining room. By 6:00, the Cookie Monster had demolished the entire plateful, so I baked, yet, another batch of cookies. Under cloak of darkness the Cookie Monster descended and made off with all the cookies, leaving behind only a few tell-tale crumbs as evidence. So, to all you Cookie Monsters, I surrender! Here is my recipe for Ghiradelli Double Chocolate cookies. Enjoy!
2 c. Ghiradelli 60% cacoa bittersweet chocolate chips
6 T. butter
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1 c. chocolate chips, 1 c. white chocolate chips
