Cookie Time

There comes a time in every woman's life when she believes she has finally achieved the world's best chocolate chip cookie.

My time has come.

There's no secret ingredient. It is just the perfect quantities of the tried and true ingredients mixed to perfection to make a crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside, delicious cookie.

And because I like you, and am selfless that way, I would like you to have the recipe so you too can achieve the world's best chocolate chip cookie.

Without further delay:

Chocolate Chunk Cookie

2 c. flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 sticks (1 c.) butter--softened

1 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. brown sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

1 egg + 1 egg white

1 1/2 bag of chocolate chips or chocolate chunks

chopped nuts as/if desired

Preheat oven to 350.

In mixer, beat butter and both sugars for three minutes (med to high speed).

Add other wet ingredients.

In another bowl , sift together flour, baking soda and salt.

Add dry ingredients to mixer until blended.

Fold chocolate chips into the cookie dough.

Ball up dough and arrange on cookie sheets.

Bake about 9 minutes until slightly browned on outside.


P.S. After you've tried this recipe and STILL think yours is better, send me your recipe and I'll give it a go.

P.S.S. This recipe is not mine, but Martha Stewart's. Defer credit to me if you wish.
