Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have been on a baking kick the last couple of weeks, trying out new recipes and also trying out old recipes on smaller trays and dishes, in an attempt to figure out what will work in the camper for next year.
I have always used the Nestle Tollhouse recipe for choc chip cookies but, when baked on the Pampered Chef stone, they spread too much and do not come out well (the camper oven has a tendency to burn things but the stone disperses the heat). So, I tried a new recipe and the cookies are SO good, have now baked way more batches than I should have but somehow they all get eaten - quickly!
Here's the recipe:
Chocolate Chip Cookies (from: ‘What’s Cooking: Chocolate’)
1½ cups flour
1tsp baking powder
1 stick of butter
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla
⅔ cup chocolate chips
Beat all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
Place tablespoonfuls of mixture onto cookie sheets.
Bake in preheated oven: 375°F for 10-12 minutes.
