Wookie Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 3 dozen




  • Preheat the oven to 375º. Put the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.
  • Stir with the wooden spoon until well mixed. Set aside.
  • Put the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in another mixing bowl. Using the electric mixer set on high speed, beat together until well blended and creamy, about 3 minutes.
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and stir with the wooden spoon until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop up a rounded tablespoonful of the dough and drop onto a baking sheet.
  • Repeat until you have used up all the dough. Be sure to leave about 1 inch between the cookies because they spread as they bake.
  • Using pot holders, put the baking sheets in the oven. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Again, using pot holders, remove the baking sheets from the oven. Lift the cookies from the baking sheets with a spatula, and place on cooling racks.
  • Let cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
