Blogmas Baking | Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hello!  I’ve decided to do something a little different on my blog today.  The other day, I made chocolate chip cookies with my favorite recipe, so I thought I’d share with you all my baking experience.

My favorite cookbook for cookie recipes is Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book.


I love how vintage-looking the book is, plus the recipes are the best! (And yes, my book is chewed.  The rabbits that we had when I was little were litter trained and freely hopped around the house like a cat, and one day they got into all our recipes.  This isn’t the only recipe book we have that is chewed.🙈) For today’s recipe, I used The Best Cooky of 1935-1940 Chocolate Chip Cookies.  There are several different recipes for chocolate chip cookies, but this one is my favorite!

So, here’s all the ingredients that I used:

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2/3 butter (the cookbook calls for shortening, but I always just use butter)

1 teaspoons vanilla

1 egg

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (I always add just slightly more flour than this)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 (10 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips (the cookbook simply calls for 1 cup of chocolate chips, but there’s no such thing as too many chocolate chips, so I just usually add however much I want 😏)


Once I gathered up my ingredients, I set the oven for 375° F, and then I started making them.  First, I mixed the butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla until it was nice and fluffy looking.


After that, I added in the flour, soda, and salt, and mixed until it looked like cookie dough.  Then I added in the chocolate chips and mixed everything up.  Then, after eating too much cookie dough even though there’s raw eggs and you’re not supposed to…I’ll take my chances, I rolled the dough into balls and it was time for them to cook!



The recipe calls for the cookies to cook for 8-10 minutes, but for me personally, I find that they are usually done at around 8:30-9 minutes.  So, I always set my timer for 8:30.IMG_9805

After they’re done, I always put them on a cloth to cool!


That’s me making organizing the cookies on the towel because I like the rows to be even while they cool, lol.


Then, after that, the obvious next step is to grab a plate, a glass of milk, and enjoy!




To see the complete, original recipe and instructions, they can be found on the Betty Crocker website, by clicking here!

I hope you enjoyed this!  I’m thinking of including other Christmas-y recipes throughout the rest of Blogmas, so please, let me know what you thought of today’s post.

Thanks for reading!
