This recipe bakes around 1 1/2 dozen cookies, that's if you have the strength to resist the temptation of the cookie batter. As a family of 6 with sixty fast fingers, I can scrap out about a dozen or so!
2 Cups and 2 teaspoons unsifted all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 Sticks butter (12 Tablespoons) melted and cooled till warm
1 Cup brown sugar, I use light
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1 Large egg, plus the yolk of another egg
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 Cups goodies of your choice!
Step One: Preheat the oven to 325* degrees
Step Two: Microwave butter until melted
Step Three: Place the first three ingredients into a bowl. Mix together and set aside
Step Four: Place in butter and both sugars into mixing bowl and blend until mixed together
Step Five: Add the large egg and yolk into mixture and give a quick mix
Step Six: Add the 2 teaspoons of vanilla to mixture and blend until mixed together
Your mixture should look a tad fluffy.
Step Seven: Start slowly adding the dry ingredients to the mixture. Add a little at a time allowing the dry and mixture to blend before adding more of the dry ingredients.
Step Eight: Remove mixing bowl from the mixter. Now you have your cookie base. Have fun adding 2 cups of goodies to the cookie base. Mix good and well. Get underneath and dig into the mixture blending the items well into the cookie base.
