Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Due to some positive feedback I got off of a batch of cookies I made last week I am going to post up the recipe.  Yet again it comes from Kids Cooking: A Very Slightly Messy Manual.


1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg

1  1/8 cups flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

2/3 of a 12 oz bag of chocolate chips (I use Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Morsels) also note I put more chocolate chips in there than the recipe says to, they said only half (what fools) =)

You will need:

mixing bowl (I use a Kitchen Aid Bowl)

cookie sheet & spatula (Duh)

and a small mixing bowl

1. In a small pan, melt the butter.  When it’s hot add both sugars, stir and then let it cool down a bit.

2.While the butter mixture is cooling, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt into the MIXING BOWL.

3.In the SMALL MIXING BOWL, beat the egg lightly with a fork (I beat it just short of scrambled egg color-if that makes sense), then add the egg and vanilla to butter mixture. Stir.

4. Now add the butter, egg, and vanilla mixture to the MIXING BOWL.  Stir again, and then add chocolate chips.  If you are using a electric mixer only stir in the chocolate chips for a few seconds, enough so it is mixed but not enough to beat the chocolate chips to death.

5. Now the hard part: put the bowl in the fridge to cool for about an hour.

6. ten minutes before you take the mixing bowl out pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.  Don’t grease the cookie sheet.  Roll the dough into walnut size balls, put them on the cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes depending on your oven.

Enjoy Everyone!

    • Uh-oh. Yeah let the butter/sugar mixture cool for about ten minutes. The fact that it is hot right now doesn’t help your chocolate chip temp.
