Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today's Aiden activity is making Chocolate Chip Cookies! Yum! Aiden had fun pouring the ingredients in and most of it was hand over hand but some wasn't and I am learning cooking with kids is messy but it sure is fun!

enjoying his hard work!

This is the recipe we use (we didn't use nuts today and used milk chocolate chips)

  • 1/4 pound(115g) butter
  • 1/2 cup(1 dL) dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup(100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/8 cups(155g) flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup(1 dL) chopped nuts
  • 1 cup(1/4L, 6 ounces)semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees(190C) and grease some cookie sheets. Cream the butter, then gradually add the two sugars, beating until light and smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda together and add it to the first mixture, blending well. Stir in the nuts and the chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheets about 1 inch apart and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. About 50 cookies.Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies: Use 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal instead of the chopped nuts
