Hi friends! Today I thought I would share with you the baking recipe that started it all – the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. These are the cookies you bake with your mom when you’re little… And contribute only by putting in a teaspoon of vanilla and eating all the extra chocolate chips. This recipe was the first one I ever learned to bake by myself. It’s from the Hershey’s Cook Book that we bought from a Hershey’s factory back in the ’90s and it is deeeelicious. I don’t think I’ve ever made anything else from the recipe book though.
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 whole eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup (1&1/2 sticks) softened butter (I melt if I’m wanting extra gooey cookies)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups HERSHEY’S (or any other…) semi sweet chocolate chips
“Heat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs: beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls (I tend to make them quite a bit larger than that…) onto lined (with parchment paper) baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
Yield: About 7 dozen cookies.
And that’s that! My go-to classic chocolate chip cookie recipe is now yours, hope you enjoy! Make sure you let me know how it goes if you try them out, x
