I know why cookies were invented. They were invented to help one cope with work deadlines and similar highly stressful situations. They were invented to bring a calm over the eater. And they were most definitely invented to ensure that I am not the next subject of that "Snapped" television series. These are my reasons for baking these cookies.
I've had a very difficult week and the thing that got me through it was these cookies. Let's just say that I have a bottle of nutella in my pantry and I'm not afraid to use it. Giada's recipe is simple, straightforward and filled with butter. This is how I want to live my life.
These are not your ordinary cookies. They will not be chewy or cake-y. They will be light and crispy and that's OK. Don't be afraid to add extra chocolate chips into the batter to ensure extra chocolate chip-y goodness. You won't be disappointed. In fact, I would recommend bringing a half cup of chocolate chips to the party (aka the batter) next time. We all need to take a walk on the wild side sometimes.
