By Madeleine Schroedel and Emily Amjad

You will be appalled by the amount of butter in these cookies, but it’s all worth it because they are “like, so good” in the words of Emily.  A switch from the usual chocolate chip cookie, these delights give 4 times the chocolate, and are 27 times better than that Nestle Tollhouse prepackaged stuff.  Originally in Spanish, this recipe is so out of bounds in the flavor department that it wasn’t even translated to English (a.k.a. it’s so good it’s illegal).  By baking these cookies following the Spanish recipe, you can truly be a model for HB students by learning not for school but for life (#españolskillz).  For those slackers out there, though, we’ll be nice and include the English translation.

Bate, agregando gradualmente la mezcla de harina. Incorpora los trocitos. Deja caer cucharadas redondas de masa sobre bandejas para hornear sin engrasar.

3. HORNEA las galletas de 9 a 11 minutos o hasta que estén firmes en el centro. Déjalas enfriar en las bandejas para hornear durante 2 minutos; sácalas y déjalas enfriar completamente sobre rejillas de metal.
