Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies

Lately, my mom has been DVR’ing a bunch of murder mystery movies. And by proxy, dad had taken a liking to them as well. Often on Sunday evenings, you’ll find us (the family) out of television shows to agree on watching. So it comes down to another episode of Pioneer Woman or one of these Hallmark movies.

So the week before father’s day we watched one called Murder, She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery. Hannah (the main character) is a baker who finds herself repeatedly mixed up with murder cases she adamantly solves. In each movie, you’ll see her making various sweet treats and handing them out to the other characters. This one featured some chocolate chip cookies. Dad announced that he wanted some so I told him I’d make them for father’s day. You can find the original recipe on the Hallmark website if you’re curious.

Form balls of dough and place on a greased (or parchment paper-lined) cookie sheet. About 12 balls per sheet should do it.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. (I rotated mine about halfway).
Let them cool on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes.
