Quarter Pound Chocolate Chip Cookies

Quarter Pound Chocolate Chip Cookies (1/17/11)

These cookies are similar to the ones I posted the other day, just not double chocolate. Mike prefers just chocolate chip cookies, so I thought I would try the recipe, just omitting the cocoa powder and adding in some brown sugar. The results were delicious!

You will need:

2 sticks margarine, cold
1-1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2-1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2-1/2 cups chocolate chips

1. Combine margarine and sugars in a mixing bowl.

2. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.

3. Add in eggs, one at a time.

4. Add the flour, salt, and baking powder to the bowl and mix until incorporated.

5. Fold in chocolate chips with a spoon.

6. Divide dough into 4 ounce portions (or 12 equal pieces).

7. Form into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet, 2-3 inches apart.

8. Flatten balls slightly with your palm.

9. Bake at 350 for 16-19 minutes.

10. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to completely cool.

  1. I need to know - Are they chewy, or not so much?

  2. Yeah, I think you can classify them as chewy Dani. They're a little crispier on the bottom and a soft interior.
