packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/8 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
Very good...I'm in Switzerland and they don't have chocolate chips (can you imagine?...Nestle is only about 40 miles away and they don't have chocolate chips!) so I used a Frigor Dark Chocolate candy bar and chopped it up into tiny pieces. I thought it was just chocolate, but it turns out it also has a creamy hazlenut ingredient. Anyway, the raw dough tasted EXACTLY like Ben & Jerry's chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I baked the cookies too long (a common problem of mine) so they were a little crisp once cooled, but my husband loved them and we think they'll go great with ice cream. Will definitely be making again. Oh - this doesn't make 3 dozen cookies....MAYBE makes 2 dozen...but more like 15 - 18 regular sized cookies.
This recipe only makes 12-15 small cookies and is a little too too sweet. I would adjust and add less sugar.
They were a big hit among friends and family. Actually, they go way too fast! I might try making it in two different batches next time since they squished together during baking... check out the photo I submitted for the title.
Very easy chocolate chip cookie recipe. My kids and husband love them. It makes a very small amount, though, so I quadruple the recipe each time and keep some dough in the refrigerator for when I run out--which is very soon.
These were easy to make and very quick but I found that they were soft but very dry and floury-tasting. I won't make these again...
Great! Pretty and unassuming, until you eat one...mmmm. I make everytime I have to bake something...I am trying to make all my friends Republicans on the INSIDE...gotta start somewhere!
If you use non white sugar they will be CRUNCHY.
Yum!! I actully changed the recipe a bit by making chocolate cookies. I was looking for a basic chocolate cookie recipe and found this one, deciding to try it even though it made chocolate chip cookies. Instead of using SOFTENED butter, I completely MELTED the butter in the microwave. When you mix the chocolate chips with MELTED butter, they melt, making the dough brown and chocolaty. When you bake the cookies, they will be chocolate instead of chocolate chip. That is my trick for making chocolate cookies! Thanks for the recipe, Barb!
These cookies were easy and very good. Mine came out very soft which I love in a chocolate chip cookie
