3 simple tips to make perfect chocolate chip cookies….
My son told me tonight he had three shared lunches at school next week. I thought about all I could bake, but I decided to make a large batch of chocolate chip cookies.
Cookies are very easy to bake and everyone has their favourite recipe. Our family’s favourite recipe comes from: Betty Crocker – Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (I never add nuts just due to so many people having allergies)
12 ounces/340 grams (2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
- Start by pre-heating the oven to 375 Degree F./190 Degree C.
- Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches/ 5 cm apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centres will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
My simple tips to make your perfect cookies are:
Refrigerate your cookie dough for a short time before scooping (if you have the time)
Use a cookie scoop to make the cookies perfectly round
Only bake for 8 to 10 minutes this keeps the cookies from going flat

I love vintage things in my home. This beautiful vintage tray cloth was made by my grandmother’s friend in 1937.
