This week Haley wanted to share her favorite…and this year at the ripe old age of 8 she has now watched me make them so many times she can conquer these easily on her own! Sounds like a fantastic cookie to me
Let me start off by fessing up that I have an addiction to the annual Better Homes and Gardens and Martha Stewart cookie cookbooks. I treasure these magazines full of yummy cookies year after year. I find at least one or two favorites each year and we make them over and over…cause they are good!
and these are the best chocolate chip/chunk
(whatever kindof chocolate you want to throw in there)
I have ever stumbled upon!
And trust me…I have tried many a chocolate chip recipe!
- 1 cup of butter, softened
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose baking flour
- 11 to 12 ounce baking chocolate chips/chunks
Start by adding in your soften butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and egg.
By the time you get to the chocolate chips
you may need to switch over to stirring with a good strong spoon…
that is if you are like us and add a big old bag in there
mainly because they are perfect to eat by themselves too.
Sometimes you have to “test” them, you know, to make sure they are the perfect chocolate
350 degrees for about 10 to 15 minutes.
I prefer mine on the soft side so I tend to bring them out after they just barely turn brown on the edges.
