Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monday, January 5, 2015

On New Year's Eve, Taylor and I were suppose to hang out with some friends from Montreat, but we were still sick. So we decided to have our own little New Year's Eve celebration.

We grabbed a burger and fries before our attempt at no fast food started. When we got home, I made chocolate chip cookies (recipe below), and we moved our mattress into the living room and had a "sleep-over".
The dogs were begging for a big spoon-full of cookie dough

We watched an episode of Warehouse 13 and then watch the movie "Guess Who". That movie was hilarious. I laughed so hard!

The next morning, we woke up and started our resolutions. Taylor did his quiet time as I blogged, and then we did some cleaning. Not a super eventful start to the new year, but it was productive... well, the morning was. In the afternoon and evening, we watched the first 18 episodes of friends on Netflix ;)

Cookie Recipe

  • 3 Cups All-purpose flour
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 3/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 Cup Brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Bag Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tsp Vanilla
  • 3/4 Cup White sugar
  • 2 Sticks (1 cup) Butter
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Soften butter and combine all ingredients (except the chocolate chips) into a large mixing bowl. Stir together with a mixer until all ingredients are thoroughly combined and smooth. Then add in the chocolate chips and stir until the chips are evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Line your cookie sheets with non-stick parchment paper (or wax paper with a  little bit of cooking spray).

Use a spoon to scoop out golf ball-sized portions of dough onto the cookie sheet.

Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes.

These cookies are similar to what my mom always makes. I need to steal that recipe from her, but these were close. 

I made half the recipe last night (made about 20 cookies) and I froze the rest. If you want to freeze cookie dough, use a freezer Ziplock bag. Push the cookie dough flat inside the bag and get all the air out before you seal it. When you are ready to use the dough, let it thaw for 6-8 hours and then use the same baking directions as stated above. If they are still a little bit frozen, you may need to increase the bake time.
