chuckle Choc. Chip Cookies

I know that every family has a recipe for choc. chip cookies. Me, I usually just make the recipes on the back of the chip bag, LOL!

Do you like thin or thick cookies ? With nuts, pnut-butter chips...ect?

I like mine kinda thin and gooey with pecans in them but my Dh likes his thick and chewy but plain.

Does anyone have a good recipe for a thick & chewy choc. chip cookie? The ones that Ive tried stay thick but they are always dry.

I do not make a regular Chocolate Chip Cookie but here is one with added yummies.....

BTW - these are so good !!!!

Treasure Chip Cookies

1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup butter or margerine, softened
1-1/3 cups coconut flakes
1 (12oz) pkg. chcolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped (or any type)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder. In a larger bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk and margerine until smooth. Add the graham mixture; mixing well. Add in coconut, chips and nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. (Cookies will flatten some).

Bake 9 - 11 minutes or until lightly browned.

I think a secret is to use more brown sugar than white sugar. That's how my family likes them!

I usually stick pretty close to the recipie on the back of the bag, except I always use shortening, not butter, and I substitute almond extract for the vanilla--it adds an interesting twist! :-)

Chocolate Chip Cookies


The best chocolate chip cookies we have ever made (my almost 13yo daughter makes them now) are from the Butter Flavor Crisco can or stick insert. They are just the best!

We double the amount of vanilla or if you can get Mexican vanilla you don't need to double it as that is naturally a stronger vanilla. I don't use imitation vanilla either.

I like mine thick and chewy and enjoy pecans in them when I remember to put them in.

I know I'm late adding to this but couldn't resist!

I make up my basic biscuit/cookie mix then divide into 3 then add a couple of table spoons of peanut butter to 1/3, choc chips to another and m&m or peanuts to the other. If I make a plain batch I ice them usually choc.
I like them med thickness and crispy but I have to make them a bit softer for the others.
1 cup sugar
1 cup br sugar
250g marg
2 eggs
3 1/2 cups SR flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1pkt choc chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream butter and sugar add egg and vanilla.
Add flour, folding gently.
Divide if you want and add choc chips etc.
Roll into balls and flatten leaving a bit of space.
Bake 20 mins on 170*C

I'm with you about the recipe. I love to bake and have found that the recipe on the back of the bag is the best one. I love the thick and chewy ones too. I'd love to have a good recipe for that.

Thanks to anyone who shares. I will definitely try it at Christmas with the other 100+ doz of cookies.

Not 100 kinds, its 100+ doz. I usually do about 10 dozen or so of each kind and 12- 15 different kinds. I have probably doubled my cookie recipes in the past few years from everyone buying me cookie cookbooks. I like to try at least one different kind each year and then the normal ones that we do every year. My favorite is painted sugar cookies. They take a long time, but its just not Christmas without them. Making all the cookies is a family tradition. I've done it ever since I can remember.
