Hard-Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies


Hard-boiled whaaa?  Chocolate chip huh? Yes, we thought the same.

But wait, before we got all judgy (judgy on this slightly disturbing philosophy of baking), we had to try it.  Could it be like chocolate and peanut butter?  Or French fries with ice cream? C'mon, admit it.  I'll bet at some point you dipped your fries into a Wendy's Frosty or McFlurry. Ok, maybe you didn't but work with us here.  

So - we bought the ingredients, we laid out everything  - Yes, including the hard-boiled egg.  Cue in the childhood song - "one of these things is not like the other"  Whee, I'll say. 

We mixed them, scooped them and baked them. We then drew straws as to who would try them first. Wait for it………

It was love at first bite.  Our hard-boiled egg baking dreams had come true.  Sound the trumpets.

They were FREAKING AWESOME!!  They were gooey and chocolatey, and yes, seldom do we use these three adjectives in one sentence, but we have to include MOIST.  We said it, we did it and we don't regret it. Gooey, Chocolatey and Moist.

Your turn!
