Recipe Diaries: Snapshot #9: I have finally mastered Mom's amazing chocolate chip cookies! (only took me 30 years)

June 13, 2010.  San Jose, California.  I had to make them, bake them, and take them to a party.  The true test of my committment to a diet.


  1. you didn't eat a single one??? wow, they look sooo good. what's the recipe?

  2. I didn't eat a single one! Nor did I try any of the cookie dough..a true feat! What makes it worse, is that they are still sitting in a plastic container in the cupboard. Dave just doesn't eat cookies very quickly...sigh.

    The recipe is as follows:

    First Preheat the Oven to 375 degrees.

    I slowly pour each ingredient into the KitchenAid in the following order, and let it continue to mix on low speed.

    Chocolate Chip Cookies

    2 Sticks (1 cup) Softened Butter
    3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
    3/4 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
    1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
    2 Eggs
    1 tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. Baking Soda
    2-1/4 Cups White All-Purpose Flour
    3 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chip Cookies

    The real magic comes with the baking. I bake immediately after mixing (no refrigerator time)
    Using clean hands, I drop small heaps of cookie dough on ungreased baking sheet; Then Bake for 8 Minutes (Do NOT overbake) Bake just until the center of the cookies no longer glisten (or look wet). Then take them out of the oven and allow them to sit on the baking sheet for an additional 5-10 minutes before removing.

    If you try it, you should let me know how they turn out...but you can't buy Chocolate Chips in Wales, can you? Do you need a care package? :)

  3. That's just too much torture to not eat any! I can get choc chips here...they are just smaller packages (I need 3 packages for one batch of cookies!) and smaller chips. Sometimes I just cut up chocolate bars to use. I LOVE a good chocolate chip cookie! (and the dough, of course :)

  4. Your recipe is almost exactly the same as the Betty Crocker recipe on my blog...but you add vanilla, less salt, and more choc chips. I'll make those changes the next time I make cookies...maybe tomorrow :)

  5. There are times when I make the dough, and never end up with a baked cookie! Dave and I just save the dough for munching!

  6. Thank you for sharing this I will have to give it a try!
