Yes, seriously... Chocolate Chip Cookie... SOUFFLE!! This was the most fun, different and delicious dessert I've made in awhile. Yes, most desserts taste fantastic, but this one was very unique and FUN (not to mention super quick and easy!) Both of my boys were sold completely and I am keeping this one in the favorite file. They were adorable, I got to use my ramekins and they were absolutely decadent. I used a combo of white and chocolate chips, you could use whatever chips you preferred in this, peanut butter, dark, milk, mix it up!

Hubby and I had an "argument" over the best cookies the other night when I originally had a cookie craving and all I could find were sugar cookie mixes in the pantry (our version of arguing about cookies is seeing who can yell their favorite cookie the loudest and the most times until someone gets annoyed and gives in). I love oatmeal chocolate chip mixes the best for a quick cookie fix, hubby vehemently argued for his beloved sugar cookie! Well he won that round since I didn't have much of a choice (yes, I could have pulled out ingredients and made cookies from scratch but I didn't feel like it at that particular moment). However, I think chocolate chip cookies won last night!

Just like souffles these come out of the oven all puffed up and beautiful and then when you let them sit too long (since there was absolutely no way the three of us were going to eat all 4 of these things last night!) they deflate since their ooey gooey innards are still soft and not completely set (but that's what makes the eating them all the more decadent and delicious)!

I was catching up on blog posts I'd missed last night and came across this one on How Sweet It Is and was sold. I kept saying I was going to make "cookie pies" all afternoon. Hubby shook his head at me and probably called me some variation of silly or crazy. I didn't listen though, well not to him, I did listen to myself though! And I made the batter up which looked just like regular cookie dough but then pushed it down into 4 little ramekins and a whole new dessert was born! Kent and I shared part of one with no ice cream and then I had a few bites of hubby's with vanilla ice cream. Both were a-ma-zing! The one with ice cream had creamy melty vanilla in with the gooey chocolate chip goodness, and the one without was just straight, rich, chocolaty goodness. I don't think you can go wrong either way you serve these!

Recipe from How Sweet It Is

makes 4 ramekins (3 1/2 x 2)

1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or all-purpose)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt together and set aside in a bowl.

Cream butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer until it’s light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Add in dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Spray 4 oven-safe ramekins with non-stick spray and divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Press the dough into the ramekin – each one should have about 1/3-1/2 cup dough.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the middle is still slightly gooey. Set aside and let cool for 5 minutes until they can be handled then serve with vanilla ice cream.

About Me
I love preparing meals for my family, I grew up eating home cooked dinners as a child, and felt that time around the table was very special. It gives me a LOT of pleasure to prepare something my family enjoys!
My favorite things to cook
I cook with a lot of chicken, we prefer boneless, skinless breasts. I don't think I have a preference for a certain style of food, or ethnicity. I cook mainly simple, meat and rice/pasta/potatoes kinds of meals. I enjoy trying different flavors and fixing new recipes. We enjoy italian, southern, mexican, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's sort of a tradition in our house to have biscuits and gravy every weekend, usually Saturday morning. My husband grew up in the South, and it's comfort food! I love preparing a Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner: Roast turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls, and cranberry jelly... MMMMM!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I think I was pretty thrilled with myself the first time I successfully made a home-made pizza crust. I am also very good with homemade breads, and very proud of my banana and lemon poppy seed breads!
My cooking tragedies
I have two classic cooking tragedies from when I had just started cooking (age 16) - the first time was when I tried to thicken gravy by adding flour directly into the HOT liquid - LOTS of clumps... it was SOO gross! The 2nd time was when I tried to make my first white sauce, and I just could NOT get the flour to milk ratio right, it was pasty and disgusting!!! I've learned a lot since then, but those are classic OOPS memories!
