Oh good Lord, has it really been over a month since my last post? I hate the huge gaps in posts...I hope I didn't loose any of you. I work at a bakery and basically from Thanksgiving to Christmas I was working insane overtime...we were really cranking out the cookies. We got through the season and are now enjoying a slight lull until things pick back up again once everyone has given up on their New Year's resolution to get skinny. : ) I also quit my office job, which is when I usually wrote this blog...so now I actually have to schedule a time to update.
I decided to post one of my oldies, but a goodie. This recipe was the second one I wrote in my first recipe journal. It is kind of a random thing because it isn't a cookie, and it isn't a biscuit...so I am always confused as to when I should make it. I generally make this when I have guests arriving late in the evening...it is a good night cap treat. I was fortunate enough to have two wonderful college friends stop by for two nights and this is a must make whenever I see one of them... Do not be fooled by the name, these are incredible and different.
Chocolate Chip Bubble Biscuits
from the Nestle Toll house cookbook
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Sift together: 2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Cut 1/3 cup cold diced butter into the dry mixture.
(I usually just mix it in my kitchen aid until it is mealy...if you mix it too long it will clump)
Stir 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips into the bowl.
Add 2/3 cup milk to mixture and stir until combined....do not over mix, it will result in a tough biscuit.
In separate bowl mix 1/2 cup cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. Set aside. Melt 1/3 cup butter. Pour 1/2 of that butter into the bottom of an 8x8 pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll dough into aprx. 16 balls and place in buttered/sugared pan. Brush with remaining butter and then sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and no longer doughy looking. Cool about 10 minutes, if you can wait that long, and then eat, and share...if you want.
