This week my kitchen had the smell of fresh baked cookies not once, but twice. Tuesday Makhi and I spent time in the kitchen and Thursday afternoon the kids of Country Time 4-H worked on their baking and eating skills. Here is the Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe we used.
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt, 1 cup ( 2 sticks) butter, softened, 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cups brown sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 large eggs, 2 cups Nestle’ Toll House Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla in large bowl. Add eggs, slowly add flour mixture and stir till mixed well. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 9-11 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for two minutes, remove and continue to cool.
Did you know: The Toll House tradition began at the Toll House Inn in the 1930′s when proprietor Ruth Wakefield who was known for her rich desserts was experimenting and cut up a Nestle’ Semi Sweet Chocolate into tiny pieces and put it in her cookie dough. So was born the Toll House cookie! Semi-sweet chocolate morsals are also a natural source of antioxidants. For 1000′s of recipes visit Very Best Baking.
