Is there anything better than an old-fashioned chocolate chip cookie? Here at Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care services, we don’t think so! In honor of Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, here’s a deliciously tasty recipe to make with one of our caregivers:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons hot water
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.
Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.
Dissolve baking soda in hot water and add to batter along with salt.
Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts (if desired).
Scoop large spoonfuls of batter and drop them onto an ungreased pan.
Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
Enjoy with a friend!
