curry chocolate chip cookies

From Viand East Four

soften butter by putting it next to a lamp for about 30 minutes. (make sure it’s on a plate in case you forget about it and it melts.)


1 stick butter (softened)
1 ½ c white sugar
1 egg
1 ½ tsp vanilla

now add the curry. if it’s mild curry powder, add 3 tbsp. if it’s hot curry, add 1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. but do it to your own taste.

2 c white flour (maybe a little less, add it slow until the dough can’t take any more)
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 tbsp corn starch (optional if you don’t have it)

make balls about 1.25″ across. press two or three pieces of 45% chocolate into them and bake for about 10 minutes. we like sirius noi chocolate, but it’s hard to find. take the cookies out of the oven when they have just the barest hint of brown at the bottom. if you want soft cookies you must take them out when they are still doughy!
