Christmas dessert recipe — Brenda’s chocolate chip cookies

By: 11 December 2010 3 Comments

My daughter, Brenda SueCarol, is a sneak.

However, there are times when her natural sneakiness results in something good.

Take this recipe, for example. It came about as a happy accident, or maybe an overzealous little girl who was helping her grandmother and me bake cookies.

We thought one bag of chocolate chips was enough for our cookie recipe. Brenda disagreed and managed to dump another bag in the cookie mix before we realized what was happening. Fortunately for her (and us), her bold addition of more ingredients resulted in a great batch of cookies. Try the recipe out for yourself this Christmas season and enjoy!

Brenda’s chocolate chip cookies

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12 oz) Semi-sweet Chocolate chips
2 cups (12 oz) Milk Chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, remove to wire rack to cool completely.
