Eat Like a Princess - Rapunzel - Chocolate Cloud Cookies

Rapunzel knows betters than any of use what a stay at home order is like. Take her from her tower ballad: “Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking... Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess!” Spending years up in the tower with Mother Gothel, Rapunzel probably mastered her chocolate chip cookie recipe. I would bet she figured out how to make the most perfectly balanced cookie - crisp yet gooey with lots of chocolate and maybe something special! 

This post is an evolving question to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe! 

The first recipe I tried is from Modern Honey and is a copy cat recipe of the Levain Bakery chocolate chip walnut cookies. I love nuts in my cookies and brownies. The Levain cookie is crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside. Also, they are HUGE. I made half a batch for testing and we have cookies for days... Conclusion they are easy to put together with no chilling time required and full of stuff. Rating: πŸͺπŸͺπŸͺ/5

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts
Yield 4-8 cookies

  • 1/2 cup Cold Butter cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 Eggs
  • 3/4 cups Cake Flour
  • 3/4 cups Flour
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cups Walnuts roughly chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together cold cubed butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 4 minutes or until creamy.
  3. Add egg mixing well.
  4. Stir in flours, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined to avoid overmixing. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  5. Separate dough into large balls and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. You will fit 4 cookies on one large cookie sheet. The dough makes 4-8 extra large cookies. Leave them as balls for flatten slightly.
  6. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown on the top. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes to set.
