Chocolate Chip Cookies

chocolate chip cookies

Sorry it’s been over a week since I’ve posted anything.  We’ve had a really sick child at home so I’ve only had the time and energy to prepare quick meals.  Fortunately, Jonas is better and we have a party for Rowan’s teacher this evening and I signed up to bring cookies – great excuse to go through Mema’s recipes and try one out!  Since everyone loves chocolate chip cookies I figured I would go with those. I found 3 very different recipes for chocolate chip cookies in Mema’s stash.  Since Ted & the boys love chocolate chip cookies I’m sure I’ll eventually make them all!  For now I’m going with these because I already have all of the ingredients.

Just a note: using the measurements Mema has below, my first pan of cookies flattened.  So I added about 1/4 c. of flour to the rest of the cookie dough and tried again.  They turned out much better after that.  I could have probably added a little more flour than that but they were working well enough and I didn’t want to mess with it even more!  Also, mine took closer to 10 minutes at 325 degrees.

1 c. softened butter

2/3 c. brown sugar

2/3 c. granulated sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. water

2 eggs

2 c. sifted flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

12 oz, semi-swet chocolate chips

Beat butter, sugars, vanilla, water, & eggs until light and fluffy.  Sift dry ingredients together and add to first mixture.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased baking sheet 2 inches apart.  Bake at 325 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes.  Cookies continue to cook after removal from oven so take them out of the oven before they begin to brown.
