Somehow snowy weather gets me in the mood for making cookies, especially chocolate-chip cookies. We had a little bit of snow this morning, then the snow changed to rain, but by then I was in the mood, so we made cookies.
Here’s the recipe we followed:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup oleo stick, melted and cooled
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine flour and baking soda. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, combine melted oleo and brown sugar. Mix well. Stir in egg and vanilla extract until well blended. Add flour mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. For each cookie, drop a heaping tablespoon of dough onto a cookie sheet, leaving about 2 1/2 inches between each. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges harden and centers are still soft.
