For our fourth cookie of the day, we are going to make chocolate chip cookies! I don't think you can spend all day making cookies and not make chocolate chip. That would be ridiculous. We were going to follow the original Nestle Toll House recipe, which is what we usually make. But then we realized we only ad Ghirardelli chips, and those came with their own original recipe on the bag. We wouldn't want to offend anyone by mixing chips and recipes, so we are going with that.
2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
1 c light brown sugar, packed
2 tsp vanilla
2 c Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips (1 bag)
1. preheat oven to 375
2. mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, set aside
3. in the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy
4. add vanilla and eggs, scraping with each addition
5. add dry ingredients to the wet ones in batches until all are incorporated.
6. stir in chocolate chips
7. drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. bake 9-11 min until golden
Cal's note: these just came out of the oven and while they taste delicious, something weird happened that we've never seen with chocolate chip cookies before. We are going to take a break to check out the snow and we'll be back with pictures (of the snow and cookies!)
Ok, so this is what our cookies look like. They taste yummy but they are flat. Has anyone ever seen this happen before or know why it might? In the meantime, the Castle Farm Cookbook cannot endorse this recipe! But never fear, we won't be letting these cookies go to waste, they still taste like delicious melted chocolate...
Also, the snow is just over 15"...
