Revolution Cookies

A cookie that is so good it will revolutionize what you think a cookie should be. Recipe at MadeFromPinterest.netNestle Toll House Cookies were born of a mistake. An accident. According to the Nestle website, Ruth, one of the owners of the Toll House Inn, chopped up a Nestle chocolate bar and put it in her butter cookie recipe. She thought they would melt into the batter and create a chocolate cookie. Instead, the chocolate held it’s shape, and the resulting recipe became very popular. These Revolution Cookies were born because I was making my favorite chocolate chip oatmeal raisin cookies. After mixing up my batter I went to the pantry and found I had no chocolate chips and no raisins! I got creative in the pantry and put tried white chips and Craisins. The day I made this recipe for the first time was a revolution in cookie making for our family. These were devoured. We made batch after batch and couldn’t get enough of them.

The flavor and texture of this cookie are created from a few key ingredients. A mixture of white and dark brown sugar, and, would you believe it, a teaspoon of water? I found when I used all dark brown sugar the flavor was too strong, but the combination of the light and dark brown sugar gives the cookie a more robust flavor that is not overpowering. The teaspoon of water does something magic  to soften the cookie and keep it soft. I like to pull mine out of the oven when they look almost done, but not quite. A little underdone with a golden blond color is perfect for a chewy cookie that stays soft.
