Belle’s Easy and Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Some of you may already know this but our family are Chocolate Chip nuts. We have tried all sorts of recipe’s but here is our favourite and it is so easy to make. If you are looking for a great way to spend your shelter in place time during Coronavirus, try this very simple recipe.
2 1/2 cups flour (575 ml)
1 teaspoon salt (5 ml)
1 teaspoon baking soda (5 ml)
1/2 cup butter (115 ml)
3/4 cup sugar (17O ml)
1 cup brown sugar (230 ml)
1 teaspoon vanilla (5 ml)
Combine ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Add 2 cups (460 ml) of semi-sweet chocolate chips (you could add variations of Chocolate chips as well: Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, Butterscotch Chips for example) and 1 cup (230 ml) of nuts if you choose (crushed walnuts are best, I think). Mix well and spoon onto a cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 (190 C) for 16-18 minutes. For best results, shuffle the trays of cookies in the oven at the half time mark.
Remove from oven and place on foil or rack to cool.
This will make 24 soft cookies
If you like your cookies thinner and crisper, when they are on the tray you could flatten them a bit with a fork before baking.
