I'm sure that all of you know that "Friends" was the greatest show on television....EVER! If you didn't know that before, now you do! You also may not have known that they had a "Friends" cookbook, filled with recipes from dishes made on the show (they also have books, clothing and a trivia game that no one has been able to beat me at yet). Yes, there was food on the show....Monica was a chef afterall and much of the show takes place in a cafe with cookies and other baked goods. There are several good recipes but my favorite is the Black and White Chocolate Chip Cookies....really it's just a chocolate cookie with white chocolate chips. Super yummy, super easy to make and.....it's from "Friends", so it's pretty much the coolest cookie around!
Just a couple of weeks ago I took the boys to LA and we did the Warner Brother's Studio tour and I got to see the re-creation of the "Friends" set....I even got to sit on the couch from Central Perk! Pretty cool stuff for a fan of the show (not an obsessed stalker, just a regular old fan....I promise).
Anyways....even if you didn't watch the show (who didn't watch "Friends"?), you will love these cookies! I make them all the time because they are so quick and easy.
The recipe makes really large cookies, which I love, but you can also make them smaller. I have also made these with peanut butter chips instead of the white chocolate!
Make a batch of these cookies to enjoy while you are watching the old "Friends" re-runs!
