Do you have a favorite go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies? Me too…until I tried this recipe from the 50’s that makes a chewy, chocolately, nutty…chocolate chip cookie and I fell in love with a new recipe and now, so will you!
Here is a true story, every time I post a recipe for anything sweet my friend Dave will send me a message saying “that looks great but how about a new chocolate chip cookie recipe”. I giggle as there are chocolate chip cookie recipes on my site like my Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies with a Secret Ingredient and the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe.
Today I decided to try a new recipe, I did not create this recipe as I found it on line, it’s from the 1960’s, I thought it would be fun to see what a cookie from the 60’s would taste like.
A few things about this chocolate chip cookies:
- This recipe called for brown sugar and white sugar, I wanted something chewy and knew the brown sugar has molasses in it so the cookie would be chewy
- Simplicity, this recipe is super simple there is no refrigerating the dough, it is a one bowl recipe (pretty much dump it all in a bowl and mix) and I had all the ingredients in the pantry.
- If you are looking for that “perfect” looking cookie, this may not be the recipe for you as I did experiment with cooking temperatures and refrigeration and the cookie still bakes up the same. If you want a great tasting cookie vs the aesthetically beautiful one, this is the recipe for you!
In a large bowl add sugars, butter, salt, baking soda, egg and vanilla extract
mix until blended
add chocolate chips and nuts (optional on the nuts)
mix again until all ingredients are blended together. Scoop onto an ungreased baking sheet
bake for 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges…let cookies cool on tray for 7-10 minutes prior to removing
If you are looking for a chewy, no fuss chocolate chip cookie recipe…look no more! These chocolate chip cookies are great served warm and will hold up for a few days! Thank you Dave for encouraging me to make them and please let me know how yours come out!!!
