Cooking With Kitten: Chocolate Chip Cookies

As promised from a while ago, here's the recipe for my mother's chocolate chip cookies:


2 sticks of softened butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 12 oz. bag chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

2. Cream butter and sugars together until light. Add eggs, vanilla, and blend.

3. Slowly add flour mixture, 1/3 at a time. Blend. Fold in chocolate chips by hand.

4. Drop by teaspoonful on ungreased cookie sheet.

5. Bake at 325 for 15-20 minutes. Check after 15 minutes; if the edges are browning, cookies are done. Remove from oven, allow to cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute, remove to cooling rack or a sheet of wax paper.

NOTE: These cookies don't spread on the cookie sheet like other chocolate chip cookies do. They also aren't as brown as the others, because of the low brown sugar content. They're still tasty, though!
