Got this one from top secret recipes. These are always in our cookie jar. It is tempting to keep cooking these cookies because they don't seem done, but DON'T. They will continue to cook for a little while after you take them out of the oven. Crispy around the edges and soft/chewy in the center. Got milk?
- Preheat oven to 350ºF.
- 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 wet and dry ingredients.
- Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
- With your fingers, place golf ball sized dough portions 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake 9-10 min or until edges are light brown.
I found this on Top Secret Recipes too, and it's a keeper. I did have to bake mine a little longer than 9 minutes because the entire cookie was soft, but it might be that I made the cookies a little larger than golf balls. Overall, this is an award winner for taste, and I'm not a chocolate cookie lover. Thanks for posting!
These cookies came out great! They are crispy around the edges and chewy in the center. Mine took a little longer than ten minutes to bake but that may be b/c my oven isn't top notch. They still came out delicious! Just make sure you check on them so they don't burn!
I tried making cookies as a kid and failed miserably, so I've shied away from baking without a mix until I came across this recipe. I had to give it a try, and it worked out spectacularly! The cookies are nice and thick, and if they don't taste just like Mrs. Fields, I can't notice it. They are just as good for sure. I deviated by using only one bag of chips (wouldn't personally want more) and by adding a bag of walnuts, and they are delicious. I can't eat that many, so I froze the leftover dough and made a test cookie from it a day later. It was as good as the fresh batch. I'm really pleased with this recipe and now have confidence to try other recipes as well. Thanks!
