“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best — ” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.
This is an older recipe of mine that I came up with during the school year, and it’s funny to look back at it because this was the birth of my cooking interest. I was in denial – but look how things have changed.
So for memories sake, I’m posting the recipe on here. I will also be posting more recipes and photos on here.
I also got to reflect on what was so inspiring about cooking. It’s the value of creating: of fully living life through the ingredients and living the human being’s dream of transcending habits and limitations.
I remember wanting to make something like this, but couldn’t find a recipe for it. And then I remember the consistent question: Why not just do it yourself? Why not do what you want?
2 1/8 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup nutella
3/4 cup walnuts
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Mix baking soda, salt, and flour in the medium sized bowl.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
3. Mix the brown sugar, white sugar, and the butter together until smooth in the large bowl.
4. Add in the vanilla extract, nutella, and eggs until smooth.
5. Add in the dry mix from the medium sized bowl into the large bowl and stir until just mixed. Add in the chocolate chips.
6. Then add in the oreos (break them up into small pieces) and walnuts. Do not mix in the oreos too much, they should still stay chunky.
7. Make dough globs of a reasonable size and place them on cookie sheet. Cook for around 15 minutes (you judge how long they should be there for, based on how crunchy/soft you want the cookie). Also, remember that cookies harden when they cool, so they should be slightly mushy when taken out of the oven.
