(I guess I have my productive day today=)
When I did my presentation about the United States, some of you were asking for the recipe of the cookies I baked for you. It actually just came up to my mind while I was making some for my family the other day
So, there we go, the original choclate-chip-cookies-recipe of my lovely hostmom:
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate morsels (I'm pretty positive you can use small "smarties" or "m&m's" as well, in case you don't have chocolate chips)
- 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
(If someone is too lazy to convert the measures, I've got measuring cups at home I let you borrow =)
I'm not sure whether I've put those links already or not, so I just do it again, they're quite amusing (at least Lisa and I think so when we are still cracking up whenever we watch it...)
