Today's challenge is to share a recipe I love. This is a tricky one, as I'm not sure what recipe to share!
I've already shared my favourite Peach Crumble recipe (which I really need to make again soon! mmm). I've also shared Homemade Bread in 5 minutes - which I also haven't made in a while because I've been lazy ... (oops).
I guess what I'll share today is my Mrs. Field's Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.
I can't even remember where this came from, but somehow I ended up with a copy of the famous cookie store's recipe and it became my claim-de-fame when we had events that called for bringing food! They are sort of chewy, because they get slightly undercooked (but you can cook them longer if wanted!).
Mrs Field's Chocolate Chip Cookies.
- 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
- ½ c. granulated sugar
- 1 ½ c. packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2½ tsp vanilla
- 2½ c. flour
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 ½ twelve oz bags of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugars, eggs & vanilla.
- Sift together flour, salt, baking powder & baking soda.
- Combine wet & dry ingredients.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- With your fingers, place golf ball sized dough portions 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 9-10 mins or until edges are light brown.
Yield: ~30 cookies.
[Personally, I've found making the cookies a little smaller seems to work better. Just my 2c!]
