I love trying new chocolate chip cookie recipes – but this one is not new. It is an old old favorite of my Grandma Barbra. She has had the recipe taped to the inside of her kitchen cabinet ever since I can remember. I wanted to keep with the traditional recipe and I wanted the “old fashioned” taste that I remember – so I followed the recipe exactly. Try these the next time you want a nostalgic bite from the past…
Grandma Barbra’s Old-Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 sticks (8 oz. total) margarine, melted
1 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups white all-purpose white flour
1 (12 oz.) bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, mixed with 1 tablespoon white all-purpose flour
Start by preheating the oven to 375-degrees F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix the melted margarine, white granulated sugar and brown sugar together until thoroughly combined.
Next, add the beaten eggs and vanilla extract before stirring again.
Add the baking soda and salt, stir and then dump in all of the white all-purpose flour at once, and stir until just combined with the other ingredients.
Finally, fold in the flour covered semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Drop tablespoon size amounts on the parchment lined baking sheets, and bake each sheet (one at a time) in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes until lightly golden brown.
Remove and allow to cool on baking sheets.
