Chocolate chip cookies are made putting eggs, butter, vanilla, sugar, flour and chocolate chips in a bowl and mixing well. The mixture is dropped by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and baked in a 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for eight to ten minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown.
An easy chocolate chip cookie recipe involves creaming a cup of softened butter with a teaspoon of vanilla and two eggs until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, combine 2 1/4 cup self-rising flour, 3/4 cup of white flour and 3/4 cup of brown sugar. The flour mixture is added to the egg mixture and mixed. Two cups of chocolate chips are folded in to the mixture. Rounded spoonfuls of the cookie batter are dropped onto a cookie sheet and baked at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for eight to ten minutes, or until the cookies are lightly brown. The cookies cool on the cookie sheet before being removed and stored.
Variations on the basic recipe include adding 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips, or a cup of chopped nuts such as pecans and walnuts, to the cookie batter.
Substituting a cup of butter-flavored shortening for the butter will create chewier cookies, while using only white sugar instead of brown sugar will create thinner and crispier cookies.
