Tita Portia asked me to bake chocolate chip cookies for her open house tomorrow. She serves her guests light snacks and refreshments.
Chocolate Chip cookies are so easy to bake. I usually ask my nieces to "help" but they were busy with school so I just did it myself.
Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies (hehehe found it at the back of the Hershey Chocolate chip package)
2 1/4 C. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 C. butter, softened (I put mine out of the fridge for 1 hour)
3/4 C. brown sugar
3/4 C. white sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 C. chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375F. (If your oven is fan assisted like mine, 325F)
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
Cream butter, brown and white sugar using the paddle attachment of the Kitchen Aid.
Add vanilla, then the eggs, one at a time.
Add the flour mixture all at once, beat until well blended but do not over beat.
Add the chocolate chips and beat for a few seconds.
Scoop onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 12-15 minutes if you want it crunchy or 10-12 minutes at 300F if you want chewy. I like my cookies crunchy.
Let cool before storing. I did not wait to cool before eating though. It was so delish straight from the oven! The chocolate was all gooey and melty. I only had a few pieces, saved some for Mona.
Wriggly, patiently waiting for the last batch because the last few pieces do not have chocolate chips in them.
See how easy????? I was able to make 100 pieces using the smallest scooper (bought it in Unimart).
