You never think that the seed you planted as a child could possibly be the towering willow tree that stands planted in your parent’s front yard. You don’t hold your child’s tiny hand inside your own, but think that that same hand will one day be embracing yours. The smallest moments are the ones that people want to pay a million dollars to go back to and enjoy.
I never thought that a hard boiled egg could turn a usual cookie into such a light, fluffy, wonderful treat. Nor did I ever think that a hard boiled egg could act so similar to its raw self. Seeds grow into tress, children gradually step into a new roll of being an adult, and a regular liquid egg turns solid at the hand of a bubbling pot of water. But at the end of the day, nothing is too different from the place it started.
Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies
Slightly adapted from thegirlwhoateeverything
2 3/4 cups flour
1 cup butter (2 sticks), cut into small chunks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and diced finely
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven 350F
In a food processor, mix the butter (cut into cubes) and flour until in crumb-like form
Add the sugars, salt, baking soda, and vanilla. Pulse together.
Throw in the boiled eggs (I chopped mine up a little first) and pulse until mixture comes together.
Stir the chocolate chips in by hand (I’d say, try milk chocolate if you have it).
Roll into balls and bake 13-15 minutes.
I’m going to our cabin for a couple weeks, so if I don’t post, I’m swimming or catching frogs!
