Jumbo chocolate chip cookie muffins

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1⅔ cup Unsifted all-purpose flour
⅓ cup Plus 2 teaspoons unsifted cake flour
1½ teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Baking soda
¼ teaspoon Salt
1¼ cup Miniature semisweet chocolate chips
10 tablespoons Unsalted butter; softened
¾ cup Light brown sugar
1 \N Extra-large egg
1 ounce Unsweetened chocolate; melted and cooled
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
½ cup Plus 1 tablespoon half-and- half blended with
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
¾ cup Chopped pecans


Preheat the oven to 375F. Butter and flour 6 jumbo muffin cups measuring a scant 4 inches in diameter by 1¾ inches deep.

Sift together the all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Toss the chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of the sifted mixture.

Cream the butter in the large bowl of an electric mixer on moderately high speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sugar and beat for 3 minutes.

Beat in the egg. Blend in the melted chocolate and vanilla extract.

On low speed, alternately add the sifted mixture in two additions with the half-and-half in one addition, beginning and ending with the sifted mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.

Divide the batter among the muffin cups.

Bake the muffins for 29 to 30 minutes, or until well risen and a wooden pick inserted into the center of a muffin emerges clean and dry. (While the pick may be tinted with chocolate, it should be free of any unbaked particles of muffin batter.) Cool the muffins in the pan on a rack for 1 to 2 minutes. Carefully remove the muffins to another cooling rack. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
