How to make Chocolate Chip Cookies

The photo doesn't feature nuts, as I don't like them in my cookies. It does contain the nutmeg, however, which gives it a nice kick. This makes 4 dozen cookies.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour with baking soda, nutmeg and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar and brown sugar until creamy and light. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, and mix until incorporated.
  4. Gradually add dry mixture into the butter-sugar wet blend, mixing with a spatula until combined. Add chocolate chips and nuts until just mixed.
  5. Drop tablespoon-sized clumps onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until pale brown. Allow to cool on the pan for a minute or three, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.

    Aha. I've been looking for a good cookie recipe and this looks quite different from the one I tried (which was not good). I just remembered that I meant to get stuck into this site. Living on my own means I keep cooking the same things and thats no good. Now to buy some American 'cups'...
