A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand :))

Posted on: November 13, 2011

Keeping with the theme of chocolate from last week, I love chocolate chip cookies and so does my best friend and it happened to be her birthday this weekend. So being the wonderful friend I am, I baked her some delicious chocolate chip cookies.  I used a Martha Stewart recipe, because well lets face it she’s the queen home-cooking.

All you need is:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips

First you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a small bowl, mix together the flour and baking soda; then put it aside.


In a second bowl mix the butter with both sugars and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.


Then add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until it is well mixed, it should take about 1 minute.


Next add flour mixture. Mix until it is combined.  Then stir in the chocolate chips.


Cookie Dough, yumm 🙂

Once everything is mixed together cover the backing sheet(s) with parchment paper, then scoop large teaspoons of cookie dough onto the backing sheet about 2 inches apart.



They should bake for about 10 minutes, my oven is weak so it took like 15 minutes. An easy way to tell if they’re ready is once the cookies are golden brown, you insert a wooden tooth pick in the center of one of the cookies and if it comes out dry it’s ready.

I had cookie dough left over, but it wasn’t enough for a batch of cookies, so I made one huge cookie for my friend and wrote out 21 in large chocolate chips, I think it came out pretty nice, and she said it was delicious 🙂
