Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Help/Hunt - Page 2

Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies
Be careful not to cook these too long. I know it becomes tempting to keep cooking these because they don't seem to be done after 10 minutes, but they will continue to cook for awhile after you take them out of the oven, and when cool, will be nice and chewy.

1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 twelve-ounce bags semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla.

In another bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

With your fingers, place golf ball-sized dough portions 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 9-10 minutes or just until edges are light brown. Makes 30 cookies.



I prefer to make my cookies smaller, they're almost the size of Subway's. I use the small cookie scoop to make my cookies. They're maybe an inch or so in diameter. I bake those about 8-9 minutes and leave them on the baking sheet for 1 minute. They will look very underbaked! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Everyone loves these cookies! Let me know if you have any questions.

1 t. vanilla

2 1/4 C flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
6 oz chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes

I usually bake mine no more than 10 min. as we like gooey cookies (my kids call them squeaky cookies). My daughter makes this and she uses 12 oz. chocolate chips. I also add nuts occasionally.






lionladydi, does this make a soft cookie, it sounds like a good recipe, thanks

Yes, it makes a soft cookie. I usually make mine with my Kitchen Aid mixer and usually make a double batch. I also make them with peanut butter chips or a mixture of both. Have used butterscotch a few times but butterscotch is not my favorite flavoring! Good luck!

Thanks can't wait to try them, I usually use my scoop that seems to make them a little softer. Never could hardly tolerate a hard cookieicon_smile.gif

Hope it's not to late, but my family just loves the Giradelli chocolate chip cookies. I too take them out after 10 minutes of cooking and then let them sit on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes.

Barbara-ann, thanks for posting! Can you share the recipe with me? I don't think I can get Giradelli chocolate over here (not sure, would have to look) but I am sure there is something comparable that I could substitute.

I've always used the Nestle Tollhouse recipe, too. Anytime I try another one I always get a thumbs down...that's our scientific way of choosing whether or not a recipe is a keeper...lol icon_razz.gif I've used real butter many times, but the cookies would always get close to burning on the bottoms before they were done enough. I, too, like my cookie texture like you described. So, after trial & error, this is what I do: Nestle recipe - I use only Parkay margarine (doesn't tend to burn), make sure the sugar & Parkay are creamed well, add the amnt of flour called for plus another tablespoon full, bake the cookies on a stone, and the most important thing I do is chill the dough first. I don't know why, but for me this really seems to do the trick. They come out perfect every single time. It's the only thing I can bake by heart and know that it will come out right! Only because I've done it soooo many times...lol icon_lol.gif

That's the way I feel about my recipe. I have made them so many times that I can get everything out, stir them up, bake them and have it all cleaned up in less than an hour. Guess it is whatever we get used to. My biggest problem is keeping everyone out of the dough--myself included. My grandkids want me to put dough in a ziplock bag for them to take home and eat. Good thing we don't fear salmonella poisoning! I have always had better luck using Crisco than butter or oleo. I found a new recipe at allrecipe.com that had cc chips, oatmeal, and peanut butter. I tried them over the weekend and they were great. Wish I had put nuts in them and they would have been perfect! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif
