Boss Baby Says Only Closers Get Cookies But With This Recipe There Is Enough For Everyone #BossBabyMovieNight

Only Closers get cookies in The DreamWorks Boss Baby movie. If you have not seen it, you need to see it. It is adorable, funny, very witty and got me baking which made my family very happy.

In Boss Baby the Boss informs another baby “Put that cookie down. Cookies are for closers.” If you, like me have no idea what that means I have the low down. This was in fact loosely based on a line Alec Baldwin says in a 1992 movie titled Glengarry Glen Ross. Alec is a sales manager and tells his employee, “Put that coffee down. Coffee is for closers.”

While I have no idea what kind of cookies Boss Baby likes, I decided to try my hand at a recipe from Martha Stewart.  While they took a little more time than other cookies, it was worth it.

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  2. Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

My kids loved them!

I hope you have a chance to try out the cookies while watching Boss Baby out on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital July 25th!
