Forrest’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 C melted BUTTER (must be butter)
¾ C brown sugar
¾ C white sugar
Cream together with an electric mixer
Add 2 large eggs
1 T vanilla
2 ¾ C flour
1 t baking powder
1 t salt.
Fold in 3 cups of chocolate chips (and up to 1 ½ C nuts – optional)
Using an ice cream scoop or a ¼ C measuring cup (yes, that’s large, yes, trust me.) Bake at 325 degrees for 15 – 17 minutes. They will be soft and raw looking – this is ok!
Forrest was the guy who sat behind me at Garden Ridge. He answered everything starting with “Dude….”. These cookies came in a foil tray piled high. They are HEAVY. They taste like cookie dough at it’s best. They are fantastic. Follow the recipe TO THE LETTER, and I don’t say that often. Use butter. Use the scoop. Mix in order. You must. They are worth it!
