Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the CHUNK Rock Cookies

Final Cookie - 2018.jpg

Bake whatever the hell you want, whenever you want - and for those snotty assholes that say BAKING is an exact science, and you should never stray from a recipe, technique - my response is simply, “Fuck Off!” Just like music is meant to be played, rearranged according to the person making it - baking is no different; bake it just like you’re feeling - and if you do that, there is no WRONG way! {Also - these cookies taste better with the music cranked UP - pissing off the neighbors, smelling up the house}

Technique

Preheat oven to 360ºF. Place parchment on baking sheet – coat with pan spray.

Mix together flours, cardamom, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl.

 

Brown the butter in a hot pan, careful not to burn, but to cook until simmering, slightly brown, nutty.  Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

Next, add the sugars, bourbon, and vanilla into a food processor or mixer.  Paddle ingredients until blended, then slowly add the eggs and yolk.  Once silky smooth, slowly add flour mixture until dough forms - then stir in chocolate chunks.

 

Drop medium sized dough balls onto parchment covered sheet pan.  Press half a dozen (or so) sesame seeds into the top of each ball – then bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
