Guest Blogger: My 12-year-old Daughter – How to Make Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

My baking skills are not great. Unlike cooking, baking ingredients and cooking times have to be followed exactly or you will ruin it.  Most of what I make comes out of a box. My daughter, who is 12, loves to bake. When she came home from school the other day, she had a taste for cookies. She looked up a recipe and then started to put it all together. Knowing I had a food blog, she suggested that I add her cookie recipe. She wrote it and took all the pictures. The cookies were very good and lasted less than 24 hours!

1)    Gather the ingredients

  • 1 ½  sticks of softened butter (NOT MELTED)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ¼ cup of all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips

2)    Mix together the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar

(The best way to soften is to microwave it for ten seconds and then 5 second increments so it doesn’t melt)

3)    Mix in the vanilla and eggs to the butter and sugar… don’t mix with a mixer, use your hands!

4)    Get a separate bowl and put in the baking soda, flour, and salt. Do not use a mixer unless you want to clean up a big mess, mix with a spoon! Stir until smooth.

5)    Start slowly adding flour to the wet mixture

6)    When all the flour is added into the wet mixture, start adding the chocolate chips!

7)    Start making little balls of cookie dough and put them on the pan

8)    Set oven to 350 degrees

9)    Cook for 8-12 minutes

10) Let them cool on pan for 3-5 minutes then move them to a cooling rack or eat them!
