sourdough chocolate chip cookies

Recently, my Beloved asked me for sourdough chocolate chip cookies.  I put it on my chalkboard and pondered.  I bought some butter.  I found some time.  I gave it a try. 

The boyos wonder why all chocolate chip cookies are not sourdough now.  All the boyos except Koda Bear have tried these and the cookies disappear quickly.  I have been letting the cookie dough sit in the refrigerator and only baking a dozen at a time.  The flavor deepens a bit every day.  I would suggest giving these a try.

sourdough chocolate chip cookies

sourdough starter

1 cup flour

3/4 cup water

1 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

2 1/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 cup chocolate chips (or as many as you like)

About 8 to 12 hours before you mix the cookie dough, mix the starter, 1 cup flour, and water together in a medium bowl.  Cover and let get bubbly in a warm place.  Take a bit out for next time.

In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugars, and vanilla together.  Scrape in the starter and egg.  Mix well.  Add the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Mix well.  Mix in the chocolate chips. 

Put in a container that you can seal and put in the refrigerator for at least twenty four hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Drop teaspoons of dough on the baking sheet.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes are until golden.  Let cool about five minutes before trying to take them off the sheet.

They are really nice with a cup of tea.

It is the type of week I have had.  A cup of tea and cookies after work have been needed.
