Chocolate Chip Cookies chocchipcookie.jpg (22225 bytes)


The following recipe is for a famous chocolate chip cookie originally used to promote the use of the company's morsels.  This recipe was altered in 1979, but here I present the original, unadulterated version and the one I won the school cooking competition with.  Enjoy!

Your host, Brad

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups (12 oz. package) chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans or macadamia)

Preheat oven to 400F.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt in bowl.

Beat butter, granulated and brown sugars, and vanilla in large bowl until creamy.  Add eggs one at a time until smooth.

Gradually add dry ingredients.  When well blended add morsels and nuts.  I prefer to hand stir at this point not to break or melt the chocolate morsels.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, keeping about 2" apart.  Bake for 9 to 11 minutes until golden brown.  Cool on baking sheet for a couple of minutes and transfer to wire rack until completely cool, being sure to eat at least one while warm to ensure quality control!
