I love cookies, especially chocolate chip, but there is no doubt in my mind that not all cookies are created equally.

This recipe comes from my Aunt Carol, who has always made the best chocolate chip cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookies 2

Ingredients needed:

  • 2 sticks room-temp butter (minus 1 tbs)
  • replace the one tbls of butter with 1 tbls of crisco
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 bag milk chocolate or semi-sweet chips
  • 1/4 cup of heath bar bits (optional)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Cookies

Using a wooden spoon, cream the softened butter and the sugars.  Then add egg and vanilla, stir well.

Slowly add 2 1/2 cups flour to dough, mix well. Once mixed, add chocolate chips, toffee chips and crushed nuts to dough.

Add chocolate chips and nuts

Drop spoon-sized amounts of chocolate chip cookie dough onto cookie sheet, evenly spaced.

Bake cookies 10-11 minutes or until center is still slightly soft but edges are golden brown. Immediately remove cookies from cookie sheet and place on cooling rack. Wait at least 10 minutes then serve with milk!

Fresh from the over they're warm, gooey, and reek of that special combination of sugar and chocolate in every bite! You KNOW you want one right now!     There are few such things as bad chocolate chip cookies. The bad ones are just sugar cookies with chocolate chips placed sparsely throughout. The good ones - lord are there EVER a lot of them - have the chocolate as the main attraction, not just the side bar, and this is so easy to figure out that most corporate entities like …

About this topic

Wiki

chocolate chip cookie is a drop cookie that originated in the United States and features chocolate chips as its distinguishing ingredient. The traditional recipe combines a dough composed of butter and both brown and white sugar with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Variations include recipes with other types of chocolate or additional ingredients, such as nuts or oatmeal.

The chocolate chip cookie was accidentally developed by Ruth Wakefield in 1933. She owned the Toll House Inn, in Whitman, Massachusetts, a very popular restaurant in the 1930s. The restaurant's popularity was not just due to its home-cooked style meals; her policy was to give diners a whole extra helping of their entrées to take home with them and a serving of her homemade cookies for dessert. Her cookbook, Toll House Tried and True Recipes, was published in 1936 by M. Barrows & Company, New York. It included the recipe "Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie", which rapidly became a favourite to be cooked in American homes.
