Welp, Dave and I are three days into our “bet,” he has given up soda and I have given up cookies for a little while (our big vices).
So this is making my mouth water to see stuff like this:
(The dough is the best part…the process of making the cookies is even better to me than the cookies themselves, anyone agree out there? Yes, cookies are my vice, fresh out of the oven. Oh boy…)
But even though my mouth is watering, I’m going to go ahead and “take one for the team” because this recipe must be shared with the Fall season upon us.
It’s from my friend Melissa at Modern Honey, who has the BEST recipes including our two all-time favorites:
(My thoughts about those HERE, and I’ll have to add my brother’s additions with almond flour some time…it’s become a favorite with them as well), and:
(This is the recipe Lucy has down pat and will hopefully start her cookie business with some day…she’s been dreaming about that. They are SO GOOD!)
But all of Melissa’s recipes are phenomenal I have to say, so my girls and I knew, when we whipped these up for the first time a few weeks ago, that they would already be winners.
And they were. (I have made them more times than I care to admit since then.)
I would never guess to put nutmeg and cloves in a chocolate chip cookie but boy oh boy, these things will knock your socks off.
And I want to always have this recipe here, so here we go:
12 T. butter (cold, cut into cubes)
½ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup sugar
Whip the butter and sugar together on high speed for four minutes until creamy. Then add:
1 large egg
2 T. molasses
Whip for one more minute. Then gently fold in:
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
I usually bake about twelve cookies with this recipe (make them pretty big like Levain does).
Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.
THEY ARE SO GOOD!

Signing off before I get too tempted to make them.
