Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Butter Wafers - The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook

We love cookies.  We love butter.  We love chocolate.  Therefore, we love Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Butter Wafers, one of the very best cookie recipes I've ever encountered.  It's just one of the fabulous chocolate chip friendly recipes in Elinor Klivans' cookbook, The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook.

I am generally not a big fan of ingredient specific cookbooks (you know the kind, The Ultimate Zucchini Cookbook, Figs Can Be Fun!, Spelt - It's Not Just for Vegans Anymore, etc.), but here I will make an exception.  I've made several of the recipes in this book and each one has been a hit...  Kitchen Sink Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chock-Full of Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate-Chip-Filled Melting Moments, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars, Chocolate Cream Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookie and Cream Tart...  the list goes on.  This is the book for the chocolate chip lover in your life.  The recipes are also relatively simple and quick to make, which allows you to decide on the spur of the moment to make something exceptionally yummy for dessert.  As you can imagine, it's good to have the basics on hand - butter, chocolate chips, sugar, chocolate chips, flour, choco...  you get the idea.  But, as long as you have an adequately stocked pantry, you'll have no trouble finding something to make.  In fact...  the buzzer is buzzing, and I have to pull a batch of those Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Butter Wafers out of the oven!  Yum!

Cookie time, kids (and parents...)!

The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook is available through the Dapper and Dreamy Bookshop!  Just click the link in the sidebar to the right for more information...
