Trophy-winning chocolate chip cookies!

It has been so long since I've lasted posted, but since beginning a new job, I've been too busy to post.

Today was a lucky day for the kids at home and for my co-workers!  I took two sticks of butter out before bed and upon waking, they were nice and soft when I used them in this scrumptious batch of trophy-winning chocolate chip cookes.  I was 10 years old when I won a trophy for demonstrating these cookies at a 4-H meet.

(Make these only if you love chewy, soft cookies.)

Use only Nestle Toll House semi-sweet morsels and follow all the directions, except:
Use only real butter.
Use only Watkins or other excellent vanilla.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees, rather than the recommended 375 and bake for 14 minutes.
Once out of the oven, allow cookies to 'rest' for at least two minutes before attempting to remove from the baking sheet so they can set up.  This goes more quickly if you rest your hot baking sheet just from the oven onto a cooling rack.
Only use a metal spatula to remove the cookies with; plastic ones will make your soft, chewy cookies fall apart.

Take the time to whip up the butter and eggs 'til nice and fluffy before adding vanilla.

Kitchen Aid offers a splash guard perfect for additions of the flour, baking soda, salt mixture.

Sticky dough makes soft, chewy cookies!  If you use too much flour, your cookies will be cake-like.  If you use a 375 degree oven, the cookies will be crisp.

12 oz. of Nestle Toll House semi-sweet morsels

Cool, transport to work on a paper plate and watch your co-workers smile :-)

  1. Yummy! This is just the way we like our chocolate chip cookies. In fact, my sons and husband like them almost raw in the center. One son thinks it's a crime to bake the dough. (I have made it several times without eggs just so he could have the cookie dough in the fridge to nibble on without worry of eating raw eggs!)
    Wow! I should have known you were an award winning cook from way back! (not too way back, though!)

  2. I love soft & chewy cookies! My favorite are oatmeal raisin & Mr.P loves choco chip!
