Buttery Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are the quintessential cookie...everyone has a favorite version of this cookie.  I came up with this version by combining several recipes that I liked and then adding a touch of Biscoff Spread to the dough just for kicks. 

*By the way, Biscoff Spread is a European mainstay that they use like peanutbutter...although they are not even CLOSE to the same thing. Biscoff has not nuts at all!! This spread is actually made out of those little Biscoff cookies ( you know the ones you get on the airplane?) I have no idea who thought of taking a cookie and making it into a spread....but woohoo great idea! *

So why did I make these today? My husband gave me the "big puppy dog" eyes and sweetly mentioned that Giada was making cookies on the Food Network...and BOY DID THEY LOOK GOOD.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, a hint perhaps?  So I made these and the happy nom-nom sounds emitting from the males in the house let me know that I better run in and blog the recipe before I forgot what I did!

Buttery Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tea baking soda
1/2 tea salt
10 tbl butter at room temp
3/4 cup brown sugar packed
1 tea vanilla
1 large egg at room temp
3 tbl Biscoff Spread (if you don't have any you can use peanutbutter or leave it out)
1 cup dark chocolate chips

Oven at 350
In a large bowl  combine flour, baking soda, and salt together and set aside.
Beat brown sugar, butter, Biscoff, and vanilla in your mixer. DO not over mix , just combine.  Then beat in egg...again do not over beat.
With a spatula combine the wet and dry ingredients until combined well. Stir in the chocolate.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  These do spread so make sure they are 2" apart at least. 
Bake 10 minutes or until golden and puffy. 
Cool on rack, pour a huge glass of ice cold milk and enjoy!
