If we balance our choices over the holidays, we can still indulge in some of our favorite desserts. The 80/20 rule is a great way to make sure you are limiting the bad foods, chemicals etc. and still having things you really enjoy. Chocolate chip cookies are at the top of the list as far as cookies go for myself and I think most people would agree!
This was a recipe I had found but made my own changes too and is now our go to chocolate chip cookie recipe and they are amazing!!! If you are bringing a dish to a party, you can totally wow your friends and family with this one. I always at least double this, sometimes I quadruple it because it’s nice to have some extra to freeze!
I use the King Arthur GF Flour and it works perfectly! I make them for my entire family and they don’t even know they are GF!Dr.
Patti’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Bake at 350, time varies on size of cookie dough, an average of 6-12 or more minutes. Just set a timer for 5 min and see. I never trust my timer with my cookies! If you want them to perfect you will figure out the time that works best for the size cookie you are making.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
Beat one egg at a time for a total of 2 eggs
Stir in 4 tsp vanilla
Dissolve 1 tsp of baking soda into 2 tsp of HOT water then add to batter
Add ½ tsp salt
3 cups of flour
2 cups semisweet chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans *optional*
Tip: If you want really big and soft cookies. I always use the ice cream scoop. To get them soft, when you pull them out they are still going to look too soft, pull them out anyway as long as they aren’t still raw in the middle. You can play around with it by pulling them out and let them sit for at least 10-15 minutes. Then you can carefully transfer them without breaking or just shove them in your mouth!
Enjoy and have a happy holiday!
