nom nom nom

A cookie post for no other reason than that;

a} I haven't blogged in a long time due to lack of internet
b} I like baked goods
c} I'm starving

Pomegranate Chocolate Chunk Cookies

1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 oz semisweet chocolate chunks
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

Preheat the oven to 350. Line baking trays with cooking paper. In a medium sized bowl combine flour, salt, and baking powder. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and combine thoroughly. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the sweetened butter and mix until a very thick dough forms. Use a spoon to fold in the chunks then the pomegranates. Form cookies by dropping 1 heaping teaspoon of dough on the sheets two inches apart. Flatten slightly then bake until light brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on wire racks (if you can wait that long) then serve with plenty of cold milk. Nom nom nom!
