“While on vacation this summer I read the book "Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder" by Joanne Fluke. The author included several cookie recipes throughout the book. I want to pass this book on to my partner in the Used Media Swap on Zaar so I am posting the recipe here to try later. If you get a chance to make the cookies before me, please post a review to let us know how good they are. The author did not indicate the serving size so I guessed. I will update when I know exact serving sizes. Please note: Preparation time listed does not include dough chilling time.”

Directions

  1. Do not preheat oven yet - dough mush chill before baking.
  2. Melt chocolate chips with butter. (Microwave on high power for 2 minutes, then stir until smooth).
  3. Mix in sugar.
  4. Allow to cool.
  5. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  6. Mix in vanilla, baking powder and salt.
  7. Add flour & mix well.
  8. Chill dough for at least 4 hours (overnight is even better).
  9. Preheat oven to 350 degrees with rack in middle position.
  10. Roll walnut-sized dough balls with you hands (this is messy, you might want to wear plastic gloves).
  11. Drop the balls into the bowl of confectioners' sugar & roll them around until they are covered.
  12. If dough gets too warm, stick it back into the fridge until you can handle it again.
  13. Place the balls on a cookie sheet (12 to a standard sheet works best).
  14. Do not flatten - they will flatten as they bake.
  15. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
  16. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  17. Eat and enjoy.
