Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.
After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.
2 sticks butter 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1 cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 2 cups (1 bag) chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place a large 10 or 12 inch skillet over medium heat. Melt the butter in the skillet until it is about halfway melted. Remove from heat, and stir the butter until completely melted. Stir in sugars. Wait for the pan to cool, so that it’s warm, but not too hot. Break an egg into the sugar and butter, and use a fork to break up the egg and mix everything well. Stir in vanilla.
2. Add in flour, baking soda, and salt. Use a wooden spoon to carefully incorporate dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Place in the oven for 20-35 minutes (Cooking time will depend on size and heat conductivity of your skillet. Just keep an eye on it. It’s no big deal if you have to check it several times). Cookie should golden brown on the edges, and puffy in the middle. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
