  • Chocolate chips
  • Nuts

Irresistible, nostalgia-filled dessert

  1. Heat-treat the flour to make it safe to eat. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Take a rimmed 18” x 13” baking tray and line it with parchment paper. Spread 2 cups of all-purpose flour evenly. Bake for 6-7 minutes so that the internal temperature touches 160 degrees F.
  2. Take 1 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and 1 cup of softened butter in a large bowl. Whisk it together with an electric mixer for 4-5 minutes till it becomes light and fluffy. Add 2 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp salt, and beat some more.
  3. Add the heat-treated flour and combine the mix. If the dough is too crumbly, add in a few tablespoons of milk, one at a time, to get the desired consistency.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips or toasted and chopped nuts. Garnish with sprinkles or more chocolate chips.

Chef Tip: This cookie dough can be enjoyed as is or even baked into cookies. Simply mix in 1tbsp baking powder and refrigerate the dough for at least 4-5 hours before baking. It will keep the fat solidified so that your cookies don’t spread. Bake at 350 degrees F for 13 minutes and transfer to a wire rack for cooling.
