“She put $900 on the fifth horse in the sixth race. I think his name was Chips Ahoy.”

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.
Step 1

Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy.
Step 2a
Step 2b

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Step 3

Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
Step 4

Stir in the chocolate chips.
Step 5a
Step 5b

Drop by rounded spoonful onto ungreased baking sheets.
Step 6

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 7a

Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool.
Step 8


Result: Awesome. No more buying Chips Ahoy for me.

In case you are still confused by the title, its from a song by The Hold Steady

  1. These were very good, but I like cookies to be bite size 🙂
