SO WHAT TURNS THEM BLUE?:

Blue Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies (CCT Staff, 03/26/2008, Contra Costa Times)


½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into ½-inch pieces

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon baking soda

1¼ cups all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon salt

1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup walnuts or pecans, toasted and chopped

1. Adjust the oven rack to the top third of the oven and preheat to 300 degrees. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Beat the sugars and butter together until smooth. Mix in the egg, vanilla and baking soda. Stir together the flour and salt, then mix them into the batter. Mix in the chocolate chips and nuts.

3. Scoop the cookie dough into 2-tablespoon balls and place 8 balls, spaced 4 inches apart, on each of the baking sheets. Bake for 18 minutes, or until pale golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
