Sometimes, all you crave is a chocolate chip cookie. A chewy, chocolate-filled cookie satisfies even the craziest cravings. You know, those cravings that drive you mad and all you can think about is that cookie, crumbling in your mouth, with a ratio of 1:1 when it comes to cookie dough: chocolate chips. And no, I’m not pregnant. I just get crazy cravings for no reason. I can’t be the only one having these maddening cravings, right!?
While the cravings subside, we make cookies. Cookies adapted from King Arthur Flour‘s Chewy Chocolate Chip recipe in their Baker’s Companion cookbook! And bare with me when I believe that substituting half the all-purpose flour for white whole wheat flour instantly converts a recipe to “healthy”. These cookies are studded with creamy cappuccino chips that I bought while at Blog & Bake in Vermont, PLUS I had some 70% Cacao Barry I had won from a giveaway over at Fresh New England. Both chocolates came together and made this intensely chewy, chocolate stuffed cookie! Oh and in case you’re wondering, here’s the link on where to get the Cappuccino Baking Chips.
