Of all my adventures in baking, I think that good ole chocolate chip cookies are still my favorite thing to make. I usually use my mother-in-law’s recipe, but sometimes I mix it up and try other variations as well. (One of my favorite things to do is replace chocolate chips with the M&Ms of whatever holiday is approaching!) So while nothing beats the simple goodness of normal chocolate chip cookies, I stumbled across two recipes that take chocolate chip cookie deliciousness to a new level. I haven’t personally tried either of these recipes, but they both look so sweet and rich in that so good it’s almost gross way, that I’m sure I will at some point.

The first is a chocolate chip cookie pie I saw on The Well-Fed Newlyweds. I love this food blog, and I love the name, so cute! I’ve made chocolate chip cookie cake before, but I’ve never thought of turning it into a pie, so kudos to that tasty idea!

Another crazy chocolate chip cookie recipe I found this week was on Serious Eats, and I thought it was pure genius…which is probably why I’m going to end up with diabetes, but oh well. A cookie stuffed inside a cookie. Amazing. I like the whole idea of taking a crunchy cookie and sticking it inside a chewy cookie to get a mix of texture and flavor. I don’t think I’ll be trying these anytime soon, but I thought it was a really neat idea!
I thought those two expressions of chocolate chip cookie desserts were so creative, that I would make something chocolate chippy myself (idk if that’s a word, but that’s ok!). I decided to try out a new recipe for chocolate chip pancakes to use up so buttermilk I had on hand; I found the recipe on Allrecipes, and it was so delicious and easy! I would have taken a picture of how great they came out, but Cam and I ate them too fast! They were super light, fluffy, and are definitely my new go to pancake recipe! Have a delicious Saturday everyone! 🙂
