The day before is dedicated to frosting my cakes so it leaves no other day other than today to make my world class “Gabby-friendly” chocolate chip cookies.
Kosher Jews cannot mix milk and meat together. Therefore, if they eat a “meat” meal, their dessert traditionally cannot have any dairy. This has been my lifesaver for Gabby (and non-dairy margarine). If I buy Kosher Parve chocolate chips than they are dairy-free and “Gabby-friendly.”
|McCormick Vanilla Rich Chocolate Chip Cookies|
- 3-1/4 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
- 1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 4 tsp. McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 pkg. (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (I skipped)
- Mix flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
- Drop by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets (I greased).
- Baked in preheated 375 oven 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks, cool immediately. Makes 5 dozens.
They are absolutely outstanding. Keeping my crazy rugrats away from these delicious cookies is not easy. They may not make it until Saturday
