A chocolate chip cookie has magical powers.
Is there anything else so simple, yet so perfect? A little flour, sugar, chocolate. Mix. Then a few excruciating minutes while heat transforms the nearly perfect dough into a perfectly perfect round disk of deliciousness.
On a plate, they’re a housewarming gift.
On a napkin, they’re a party treat.
Dipped in milk, you define synergy.
Eaten plain, you find beauty in simplicity.
Frozen, you create hope for the future.
Eaten raw, you learn time management.
Split in half, they’re conflict resolvers.
Topped with ice cream, others will hail you a genius.
But tell them it’s healthy, they’ll name you a charlatan.
That’s because one of the world’s misconceptions about food is that healthy = gross tasting and unhealthy = party in your mouth. That’s why creating a chocolate chip cookie (life’s only perfect food) that doesn’t wreak havoc on your body confuses people.
Might as well be alchemy.
But we’ve done it – and we posted the recipe on our good friend Tara’s blog: We Got Real. We make this at least once a month, because no rational human can go longer than that without a soft, chocolatey piece of heaven.
