Celebratory “I’m an author” Cookies!

What do you do when you have a story published? I’m sure some people break open a bottle of champaign or go out for a fancy dinner. Me? I make a giant batch of chewy gooey chocolate chip cookies and then make them mini-sized so that I can eat lots at once without guilt.

If you want to celebrate with me, here is the recipe!

Celebratory “I’m an author” Cookies

1 stick Butter
1 stick Margarine
3/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup White Sugar
1/4 Cup Corn Syrup
1 Egg
1 teaspoon Black Walnut Extract
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 1/2 Cups Flour
Pinch of Salt
2 Cups Bittersweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Cream the softened butter, margarine, dark brown sugar, and white sugar until fluffy.
  2. Mix in the corn syrup, egg, and extract.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until it creates a nice dough.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips. If there aren’t enough, you can always add more!
  5. Scoop the dough onto an ungreased or lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 9 and a half minutes, or until the edge is lightly browned.

Once the cookies are cooled (and by cooled, I mean taken off the baking sheet) it is time to start nibbling! You can also store them in an airtight container once fully cooled for about a week, though I doubt they last will last that long.

How do you celebrate?

  1. Black Walnut extract? Where can I find that!
    Congratulations – author!
    I usually like a champagne celebration, but those cookies are making me hungry


  2. I never heard of putting corn syrup in this recipe before. Does it really make much of a difference ? Your mother made the best cookies, did she add this?Hope everyone is well and happy . Sending love, Grandma C.
