I’ve been helping my mom in the kitchen since I was probably 5 years old. But one of the first things I remember baking on my own is chocolate chip cookies. I was probably 9 or 10 when I baked my first batch and I’ve loved making them ever since. Anytime I need to bring a dessert to a party or get-together these cookies are my go-to winner. I’ve given these as Christmas and birthday gifts and they are always a big hit.
Having said all that, there is nothing speical about this recipe, in fact you’ve all probably seen it and baked it at least once. This recipe comes from the back of the Nestle® Toll House® chocolate chip package. I’m sure it’s not the “best” chocolate chip cookie recipe, but it holds a special place in my heart.
I have wanted to bake these since we moved into our new apartment now that I have all this time and a much bigger kitchen than before (which is sad). So, today is the day!
What you’ll need — minus the pretty yellow flowers.
Mix the dry ingredients. I know you’re jealous of my blue mixing bowls… they belonged to my WF and are the best I can do until we start getting gifts off our wedding registries. Same goes for the hand mixer you’ll see below. Can’t wait to get a stand mixer! Anyway, after mixing the dry ingredients, beat the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then gradually combine. Add the chocolate chips and then it’s cookie time!
