So Troop 38...these cookies are for you!!
Ode to Philmont Cookies
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
14 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon table salt
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1/2 cup bittersweet (or dark choc) chocolate chips
3 tablespoons white chocolate, grated
4 slices bacon -crispy and diced into very small pieces
Put your oven rack in the middle and heat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Stir 1 3/4 cups flour with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, the white chocolate and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Set this aside.
Heat 10 tablespoons of butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat until melted. Continue cooking until it turns a golden brown and smells very strongly(and wonderfully) of butter. Swirl and stir frequently. Watch this carefully! This will go from perfection to burnt extremely fast. As soon as it’s done, take off the heat and stir in remaining 4 tablespoons of butter so that they melt. Pour into mixing bowl.
Place a heaping teaspoon of cookie dough on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 10-12 minutes until crisp and golden on the edges and just set in the center.
Cool on wire racks...and enjoy!!
