The original author of this recipe called them "Marry Me Cookies" because they were apparently guaranteed to get her a date and/ or marriage proposals.
I'm not in the market for either of those, though. I'm relieved to say that my dating years are behind me. They were disastrous. Perhaps I could have done with these cookies back then. Or maybe not... More bad dates, or guys wanting to marry me for my cookies... um... no, thanks ;o)
But I did make these sweetly crunchy, chewy, yummy biscuits with men in mind - fathers and husbands, though.
They'll be a great treat for Dad (yours or your children's) this Fathers Day!
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe by Melissa Stadler via the Cooking Channel
250g dark brown sugar
50g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
1tsp vanilla extract
320g cake flour
120g raw rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dark chocolate chips
In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the butter until it is melted.
Remove from the heat.
Stir in the sugar. Mix until well combined.
Chill for 10minutes.
Remove from the fridge and mix in the egg, yolk and vanilla.
Stir in the remaining ingredients.
Roll the mixture into approx 24-30 balls (large marble sized).
Place onto lightly floured baking trays.
Space them well apart. (They will flatten and spread as they bake).
Refrigerate for 30min.
Preheat the oven to 180'C.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until just beginning to turn golden.
Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for 10 minutes before placing on a cooling rack.
The cookies will be very soft when they come out the oven, and will firm up as they cool.
Have a great Fathers Day weekend!
