i thought it would be fun to share our favorite cookie recipe.

here's mine. i love baking and these are the best recipe i found for Chocolate chip cookies.

Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies.


2 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly (1 1/2 sticks or 3/4 cup)
1 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-2 cup chocolate chips

Adjust oven racks to upper and lower positions and heat oven to 325 degrees. Mix flour, salt, and baking soda together in medium bowl; set aside.

Either by hand or with electric mixer, mix butter and sugars until thoroughly blended. Mix in egg, yolk, and vanilla.

Add dry ingredients; mix until just combined. Stir in chips.
Using #40 cookie scoop (or rounded tablespoon) drop dough onto ungreased baking sheet.

Bake, rotating cookie sheet halfway through baking, until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft and puffy, about 13-15 minutes.(Frozen dough requires an extra 1 to 2 minutes baking time.) Cool cookies on cookie sheets.

Dough can be refrigerated up to 2 days or frozen up to 1 month—shaped or not.

      I don't have the recipie here at work, but my family makes our chocolate chip cookies using the recipie printed on the back of the Tollhouse Chocolate Chip package....BUT, we add about a cup of shredded cocount and about 2 cups of Corn Flakes.

      Sounds weird, but it's SO good! The corn flakes especially add a cool chewy texture to the cookie. My husband LOVES them and they're kind of psuedo-famous among my friends....even the ones who don't like coconut! :-)

        I love baking and love chocolate chip cookies. I'll add this recipe to my to try box.

        I love this website. It's seems like rounded and helpful site to talk and get suggestions on about everything.


        I can't eat too many cookies. I have a wedding dress to fit into. I probably have a year to worry about the big day but it's taken me a little time to put on weight.

        I need to lose about 20-30 lbs.

          Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

          Whisk together and set aside
          2 cups all-purpose flour
          1 teaspoon baking soda
          1 teaspoon baking powder
          1 teaspoon kosher salt
          Cream wet ingredients
          1 cup unsalted butter, softened
          1 cup sugar
          1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
          2 large eggs
          2 teaspoons vanilla
          Then stir in
          3 cups oats (not instant)
          1 1/2 cups raisins

          Preheat oven to 350°.
          Whisk dry ingredients; set aside.
          Combine wet ingredients with a hand mixer on low.
          To cream, increase speed to high and beat until fluffy and the color lightens.
          Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture until no flour is visible.
          (Over mixing develops the gluten, making a tough cookie.) Now add the oats and raisins; stir to incorporate.
          Fill cookie scoop with dough.
          (Use a #40 cookie scoop; it measures 2 tablespoon of dough) Press against side of bowl, pulling up to level dough.
          Drop 2-inches apart onto baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.
          Bake 11-13 minutes (on center rack), until golden, but still moist beneath cracks on top.
          Remove from oven; let cookies sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

            These are yummy and the ingredients are pretty healthy - i also like to make a version of this with a peanut butter cookie base and strawberry jam so they are like PB&Jelly cookies!!!!

            Jam Thumbprint Cookies

            3/4 tub Earth Balance (3 sticks or 1-1/2 cups), at room temperature
            1 cup turbinado sugar (or part sucanat and part turbinado)
            1 teaspoon vanilla extract
            3-1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
            1/4 teaspoon sea salt
            1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash
            7 ounces sweetened flaked coconut
            Raspberry and/or apricot fruit-sweetened jam

            Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
            In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the margarine and sweetener until they are just combined and then add the vanilla.
            Separately, sift together the flour and salt. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture. Mix until the dough starts to come together. Dump on a floured board and roll together into a flat disk. Wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes.
            Mix the egg wash and place in shallow dish. Put coconut in a separate shallow dish. Roll the dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Dip each ball into the egg wash and then roll it in coconut. Place the balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and press a light indentation into the top of each with your finger. Drop 1/4 teaspoon of jam into each indentation.
            Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the coconut is a golden brown.
            Cool and serve.

                    ok these sound gross but are SO good - i'm going to live on them if/when i'm ever preggers

                    Cracker Cookies
                    1 row town house crackers (by keebler, or any buttery flavoured cracker)
                    1 stick butter (any kind)
                    1 small bag of chocolate chips (prob good w/ any kind of chips)

                    -preheat over to 350
                    -lay one layer of crackers flat on cookie tray - fill tray to edges
                    -cut butter into slabs; put slabs randomly on crackers
                    -put in oven until butter is melted (i usually don't wait until it's preheated, and it's about 10 min)
                    -immediately after removing from oven, pour chips on top; as they melt, smooth them w/ spoon/spatula
                    -put in freezer for about 15-20 min.

                    can top w/ granulated sugar; will break like bark, but you can cut it.

                    may have to call k to pick up chocolate chips...
