My scheduled cookie making time is Sunday nights after the Giants lose.
Well, this past Sunday night happened to be the last night of vacation. During which I did not exactly finish all my grad school homework. Which I had a lot of. And it didn’t help that Spike TV played Red Dawn followed by WarGames during the day. Which makes it very hard to concentrate on writing a Literacy lesson plan for a non-fiction text.
So I went with something simple/quick – good old fashioned chocolate chip cookies. (Does the title make a little more sense now? More on that later.)
Original source: Nestle website
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Salt
1 cup Butter (softened)
3/4 cup Granulated sugar
3/4 cup Brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2 large Eggs
2 cups Semi sweet chocolate chips
Pre-heat the oven to 375°F. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded spoonful onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool.
Result: Awesome. No more buying Chips Ahoy for me.
