Chocolate Chip Cookies
I wanted to make soft chocolate chip cookies the other day and I found this recipe on allrecipes.com. They are cake-like but oh so good. I didn't have nuts and then I added a little more flour because the dough is super soft. I like them cooked a little longer so they are crispy around the edges and then make them bigger so they are big and soft in the middle and crispy around the edges. I also didn't flatten the dough, I just piled it on top and let the oven do the flattening.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour and baking soda, stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by rounded ice cream scoops onto a cookie sheet, and press down slightly to flatten. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart.
3.Bake for 11 to 14 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
If you make them into big cookies then I would rate it an 8 but with small cookies I would rate them a 5.
