I have no pictures
for you, because these cookies disappeared almost instantly. A week of frenzied baking had yielded some scraps of whole wheat piecrust pastry and biscuit dough, so I mixed them with an egg, brown sugar and chocolate chips to make a few dozen ad-hoc cookies.
The Wee'an, into whom most of the cookies vanished, had this trenchant observation:
They are almost like little chocolate chip French fries in the way they make you feel.
Makes life worth living, that does.Ad-Hoc Chocolate Chip Cookies
Dough scraps from pie
, cobbler, biscuits, scones, slump
, pan-dowdy, or whatever else you have been baking (about 4 ounces, but really just use up whatever you have)
1/2 cup (or so) dark brown sugar
1/2 cup (or so) flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
chocolate chips or chopped semisweet chocolate
Crumble the doughs together with your fingers. Use a pastry blender to mix in the sugar and egg. Add enough flour to make a cookie dough-like consistency. Blend in the chocolate chips and chill for an hour or longer.
heat the oven to 375. Form the dough into cherry-sized balls and arrange them on parchment lined baking pans. Bake for 20 minutes, switching the trays front to back and top to bottom halfway through.
