Big, Thick, Chewy, & SOFT Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have an addiction to chocolate chip cookies. Now I've found a recipe that I think is going to be hard to top! I was looking for a thick, chewy, SOFT cookie and I found it. These stay soft for over a week. its amazing!


I try and convince my kids that they want me to make them so I have an excuse. I used 2 kinds of chocolate chips and a tablespoon of vanilla to get as many yummy flavors as I could. I am going to go make another batch as soon as I finish typing. 

Big, Thick, Chewy, & Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup Butter, room temp
3/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 3/4 cups Chocolate Chips, any variety

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the butter and sugars and beat until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.

In a medium bow whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and baking powder. Turn your mixer to low and add in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat. Measure 1/4 cup of dough and form into thick circles.Bake for 9-11 minutes. The middle of the cookie should look a little under baked. 

Remove from the oven and let cool for a couple minutes on the cookie sheet and then move to a cooling rack. These are really good warm and really good at room temp so enjoy!

Our Favorite Lasagna

I tend to cook dinner more in the winter. When its cold outside and we aren't at the park all the time, we tend to stay inside and I want to make a cozy meal for my family. Lasagna definitely falls into the 'cozy' category for me.


This lasagna has a homemade sauce with ground beef and Italian sausage. Its full of flavor with the basil and garlic. A delicious meal for any night, but especially a cold winter evening!


Our Favorite Lasagna

1 1/2lbs Ground Beef
1 lb Italian Sausage
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 Onion, diced
1 - 28oz can Crushed Tomatoes
2 - 6oz cans Tomato Paste
2 Tablespoons Dried Parsley
2 Tablespoons Dried Basil
1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
1 teaspoon Salt
3 cups Cottage Cheese
2 Eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated not shredded
2 Tablespoons Dried Parsley
1 teaspoon Salt
1 lb Mozzarella, freshly sliced
10 oz Lasagna Noodles, add 1/2 teaspoon Salt & 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil to your pasta water

1. In a dutch oven or large saucepan, over med-high heat, put the ground beef, Italian sausage, onion, and garlic and cook until brown and the onions are soft. Drain the fat. Add in your crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, parsley, basil, oregano, and salt. Let simmer for at least an hour.

2. In a large bowl, combine your cottage cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt. Boil your noodles to al dente. 

Assembly...
3. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place 3 of the cooked noodles on the bottom of the dish. Spread half of the cottage cheese mixture evenly on the noodles. Place a layer of mozzarella cheese. Spread a little less than half of the tomato meat sauce over the cheese. Repeat, topping with the extra tomato meat sauce. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.

4. You can store this in the fridge for 2 days or bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
