  • I would do instead of chocoate chips I would add m and m's for color. Or maybe not make them and do the cookie the jar gift with the dry items and the recipe and then they just have to add the wet items later. But anyone should be happy with cookies.

  • An urban myth is a modern folk tale, its origins unknown, its believability enhanced
    simply by the frequency with which it is repeated. Our signature chocolate chip cookie
    is the subject of one such myth. If you haven't heard the story, we won't perpetuate it
    here. If you have, the recipe below should serve to refute it. Copy it, print it out, pass it along to friends and family. It's a terrific recipe. And it's absolutely free.


    Ingredients

    # 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    # 1 cup light brown sugar
    # 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
    # 1 large egg
    # 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    # 1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
    # 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    # 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    # 1/2 teaspoon salt
    # 1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder
    # 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approximately 30 seconds)

    2. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds.

    3. In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the espresso coffee powder and chocolate chips.

    4. Using a 1 ounce scoop or a 2 tablespoon measure, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges. Bake a little longer for a crispier cookie.

    Yield: 2 dozen cookies
