smoked chocolate chip sables

Our friend Miss A thought it would be a great idea to take Small Mister ice skating outside a few weeks ago.  It was the day we all got the crud.  I am still fighting the crud in terms of energy.  It seems to be very slow coming back.  Miss A picked up a smoked chocolate chip cookie from the artisan butcher shop that also has a deli around the corner.  We find that the shop just misses the mark most of the time with any of their prepared items.  Miss A felt they had just missed the mark with the cookie and felt like I could do a better job.

I had a request. 

So I gave it a try.  The response was:  Cookie.  Is.  AWESOME.

smoked chocolate chip sables

1 cup butter (2 sticks, the highest fat content you can find makes a better cookie, like Plugra but works even without that)

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon fine alderwood smoked salt

2 large egg yolks

2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup chocolate chips

granulated sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together.  Mix in the salt and egg yolks.  Mix in the flour.  Mix in the chocolate chips.

Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats.  Take a teaspoon of dough and roll it into a ball.  Place on the cookie sheet.  Mash down with a glass that has a bit of sugar on the bottom.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.

The cookies are the ones on the right.  Remember, Miss A says they are:  AWESOME.  The smoke is subtle and I found it could change from each cookie.

There is a new cookie request:  spicy chocolate chip.  Is is all Miss A.
