Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies, crisp on the outside, soft in the center, perfect!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter (2 sticks, at room temperature)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tbsp Flaxseed (Ground)
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 12 oz Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer add the butter and sugars. Mix on medium to medium high until light and creamy.
  2. Next, turn the mixer to low and add the eggs, one at a time until mixed in. Then, add the flaxseed and vanilla extract, mix until just combined.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. If necessary scrape down the bowl to make sure all ingredients are fully mixed.
  5. Add the chocolate chips to the dough mixture, mix on low just until the chips are incorporated into the dough.

  7. When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 375° F.
  8. Place a silpat mat or parchment paper onto a baking sheet tray. Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, drop rounded scoops of dough onto your baking trays.
  9. Place sheet tray into the oven and bake at 375 F for 10-11 minutes
  10. Using a spatula remove cookies from hot sheet tray to a cooling rack. Let cool (if you can!) and enjoy!

Better than Girl Scout Samoas with just 4-ingredients! Plus, no added preservatives or artificial nonsense here!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups Unsweetened, Shredded Coconut
  • 2 cups Pitted Dates
  • 1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F for toasting the coconut.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor add the dates and pulse for 10-20 seconds to break down the dates.
  3. Pour coconut onto a sheet tray with a silpat or parchment paper and place in the oven to toast for 3-5 minutes. (Take care to watch it as it will burn easily!) Remove from oven and allow to cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the toasted coconut to the dates in the food processor and pulse for 10-15 seconds. You will know the mixture is ready when it can be pinched together and stays together.
  5. Scoop out tablespoon size portions of the mixture and form into a round cookie shape, pressing it into shape with your fingers. Place onto your sheet tray with the silpat or parchment from toasting the coconut. Continue to form cookies with the remaining mixture.*To make authentic Girl Scout Samosas, take a toothpick or small spatula handle and make a hole in the center of each cookie. You may need to press and shape the cookies to retain their shape.
  6. Place the sheet tray into the freezer and freeze for 5 minutes to set the cookies shape.
  7. Meanwhile, place the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 25 second intervals until the chocolate is fully melted, stirring in between each interval.
  8. Next, remove the cookies from the freezer. Dip the bottom of each cookie into the melted chocolate to coat the bottom and return to your silpat or parchment covered sheet tray. Repeat for all cookies. Then, using a spoon, drizzle the remaining chocolate over the cookies in a stripe pattern for the full Samoa look.
  9. Place the cookies back into the freezer for at least 10 minutes so that the chocolate will set. Remove from the freezer and carefully peel the cookies off your silpat or parchment. Enjoy!

Notes

Keep the Samoas in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
