Cookies!! Cookies!! And More Cookies!!!

I needed to make cookies for my cousin's mision homecoming today so I thought I would share the 3 cookie recipes I used. They are all so yummy!! I made Monster, chocolate peanut butter chip, and chocolate chip. I didn't post a picture of the Monster cookie dough but you can see how they look by the picture here. Remember for a good cookie make sure the dough is not to sticky and you are able to roll it in balls without getting dough on your hands. you shouldn't have to scoop them onto a cookie sheet with a spoon. They are not drop cookies. Also, cook your cookies at a lower temp. for a longer period of time and then you have a better chance of not over cooking them.

(this is how the cookie dough should look . The dough should not stick hardly at all to your hands when you roll it in balls.)
The Best Chocolate chip Cookies
1 1/2 cups butter softened Note: only use butter nothing else;butter makes the best cookie
1 cup sugar
1cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
4-5 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1-2 pkg. Chocolate chips-I use two because we like lots of chocolate. I also use one semi sweet and the other milk chocolate
Cream the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add the eggs and mix well. Add vanilla and mix well. Mix in flour, soda and salt until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Bake on a cookie sheet at 315 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. Do not let them turn brown. Just till they are golden in color. Take out and let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes.

I love how you say that your choc chip cookies are the best ones! I'll have to try the recipe. And I agree about the butter vs. margarine thing.

I tried your pumpkin waffles and they were SO yummy! I could eat all things pumpkin. I used whole wheat flour and liked that the recipe didn't call for oil-it was pretty healthy! Kade loved them too. Thanks!
