When these four men decided to branch off on their own, it was a bold move, one that was tested in the end of the last season — who knows what's in store ahead for them and the company. But, as part of a celebration of all things Mad Men-esque, we are posting this recipe for "Lobby Cookies," courtesy of Tabasco, in nod to their future successes.
- 2/3 cups butter, at room temperature
- 2/3 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, preferably Tabasco pepper sauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1 cup chocolate chunks
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
With an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, hot sauce, and vanilla in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Reduce the speed to low and then add the flour. Beat until blended. Stir in the chocolate chunks and walnuts.
Drop tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets. Bake about 15 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes on wire racks. Remove wire racks to cool completely.
