Chocolate Chip Cookies
by Karla ° Friday, September 28, 2007
If I owned a recipe book, it would include recipes with directions like:

Remove from box. Heat. Serve. Worry about dishes tomorrow.

But I don’t own a recipe book because only knowing how to create two things that are actually edible from scratch isn't exactly taxing on the long term memory center of my brain.

Below is my self proclaimed Best Cookies Ever recipe. Cookies this simple and this tasty should not be kept a secret.

We like our cookies big for the simple fact that putting three giant cookies on your plate makes you feel way less gluttonous than eating six regular size cookies.

This recipe makes about 35 large-ish cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookies:

1½ cups of butter (or margarine), softened
½ cup of firmly packed brown sugar
¾ cup of sugar
3 eggs
3 ¾ cups of pastry flour
2 tsp of baking soda
2 packages of (300g) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

I have tried the el cheapo route on this recipe with no name chocolate chips and may I suggest if you are going to try these cookies to spring for the good stuff, like Hershey’s. The difference is notable.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine the sugars and butter and mix with an electric mixer. Add the eggs one at a time and continue to mix until well blended.

Add the flour and baking soda to the butter mixture and stir until blended. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Drop a tablespoon of batter for each cookie on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven, barely touch your dinner, and eat cookies instead.

Mark has a particularly soft spot for cookies. If you have a great recipe, I would love for you to share it with me.

Please bear in mind that I am severely culinarily challenged and am absolutely not capable of following a recipe with more ingredients than the number of fingers on my hands.

I have a serious chocolate chip cookie craving now. And I was lucky enough to try the homemade whole wheat pizza once, and it is delicious. You can't even tell it's good for you ;)

I own recipe books and I NEVER use them. So overrated!

The ones you posted sound delicious.

Hey, Karla! I tried your pizza dough recipe this weekend. It was a big hit! I'm not normally a "kitchen person", but I'm trying to grown out of that. So, anyway, the kids got a big kick out of all things dough-related. They thought it was totally cool that it gets bigger after awhile. And everyone loved how it tasted. Thanks!
