Today I wanted to share with you my favourite Chocolate-Chip cookie recipe.
It seems that everyone has their own recipe for Chocolate-Chip cookies. It's probably because they are the most popular (and one of the easiest) types of cookies to make. They are really designed for the novice baker to succeed at. So clearly the cookies are something even I could handle.
What you'll need:
3/4 cups margarine (I use Becel's Olive Oil margarine.)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup Chipits bittersweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup Chipits mini bittersweet chocolate chips
Optional: 3/4 cup walnuts or dried bananas. I have made these cookies with both.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
On your laptop, put on an episode of Grey's Anatomy.
Mix margarine and sugars until mixture is fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until creamy. I used a fork, but you can also use a handheld blender.
Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together thoroughly. Then add to the wet mixture.
Add chocolate chips, walnuts, and/or banana peices.
Using a teaspon, place dough on ungreased cookie sheet, spacing them apart evenly. Do not flatten.
Bake for 8-10 mins.
I used a really large cookie sheet, so I got 20 cookies on it. The recipe should make 3-4 dozen depending on the amount of ingredients you use (ie. the recipe will go further if you add other tasty things: dried cranberries, nuts, etc.).
If Grey's Anatomy isn't your thing, I suggest listening to these songs whilst waiting for those cookies to bake.
Happy Baking, friends!
