Of course, not many people don't like chocolate chip cookies, so I took a classic and changed-it-up a little bit, ending up with a real winner! My husband couldn't get enough and I admit I have to pace myself with these tempting treats! Swapping almond extract for vanilla, adding orange zest, pumpkin pie spice, Macadamia nuts and toffee bits created a new Champion in any arena! These only take minutes to put together and in less than a half-hour, you'll have an ooey-gooey chocolaty melt-in-your-mouth, fantastic tasting cookie... the new Chocolate Chip Champ!

How To Make chocolate chip champ

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350º F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter for a minute on medium speed. Add both sugars and the extract and beat another three minutes. Turn to medium-low speed and add one egg at a time, mixing thoroughly after adding each.

    In a small bowl, mix the flour, salt, soda and pie spice and on low speed, mix in half of the flour, then add the other half and mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl when needed. Add the zest, oats, nuts and both chocolates and mix on lowest speed until incorporated.

    Drop by heaping tablespoons onto the baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches in-between each, and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove and cool on waxed paper over a rack. Store in an airtight container, or freeze for up to 4 months if double-wrapped and put into an airtight container.
