Chocolate Chips Cookies

I've been using this same recipe for years and my nieces and nephew seems to like this cookies a lot. We like our cookies to be crunchy but some of them like their cookies chewy. If you like it crunchy just bake it a bit longer and if you like it chewy just bakes it for 12-15 min.

Ingredients :

1 cup (2 stick) of room temperature butter
1 1/2 cup of sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp of vanilla
3 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup of chopped macadamia nuts (or any other nuts)

1) Preheat oven to 325 F
2) Cream butter and sugar until well combined and creamy. Add in eggs one at a time.
3) Stir in vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl.
4) Add in the flour into the butter mixture and then nuts and chocolate chips.
5) Drop a spoonful of dough into a greased baking pan and bake the cookies for 15-18 min or until the edges are lightly browned.

Hi hi.. ur cookies are lovely! m a beginner in baking.. may i know what is the measurement of ur 1 cup? Thanks!!

p.s.: M a great fan of ur blog!!! =)

Audrey, if you going to do a lot of baking you need to invest in a set of measuring cups. It comes in 1, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 cups. That is the cups I used in all my baking. 1 cup of butter is around 226 grms, 1 cup of flour is around 126 grams and 1 cup of sugar is around 250 grms. Hope this help.

Fan of this blog! I tried making this cookie just now...but it seems like the middle part of the cookie seems to be a bit soft...baking longer makes the cookie turn brown....any ideas why?

ICook4Fun said...

The temperature of your oven might be to high. Turn it down a bit and bake the cookies a bit longer.

I just tried this recipe, but used raisins instead of chocolate chips since I didn't have any. The results were soo good and heavenly when it came right out of the oven. Thanks for putting up such delicious and simple recipes! I'm a fan! (:
