Okay, chocolate chip cookies are not that creative. I guess most of you already have a recipe that you and your family love but this is so delicious that I thought would be worth it sharing.
I found this recipe online a long time ago, but unfortunately I don’t remember the original source.
This time, I decided to make them on the muffin tin to have a more defined shape. It worked very well and I’m hoping to try heart shapes for Valentine’s Day 🙂
So, if you want to try a new recipe for your chocolate chip cookies, I highly recommend this one!
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup butter at room temperature
1 1/2 cups of firmly packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 large eggs
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl
In a separate bowl, beat butter, sugar, and vanilla extract until well blended
Beat eggs, one at a time, mixing well
Add flour mixture, beat slowly to incorporate, then beat to blend well.
Stir in chocolate chips
To make it in a muffin tin, I scooped out about a tablespoon of the dough and shaped it into little balls. Placed them on the muffin tin (you may want to prepare it to avoid sticking on the bottom). With a spoon, I gently pressed on top so the dough would cover the bottom.
Bake at 375 for ~10 min
Enjoy it! I love to eat it warm and I had much more than I should 🙂
And, since I haven’t been writing about motherhood, a quick update is that life is busy with the two little girls, job searching (when time allows it) and some volunteering. Baby L is 9 months old and is standing up and starting to cruise! Our little toddler J is still working on her potty training but we had some progress. Yay!
