My mom, Sue, is a wonderful baker, as are many of my relatives. We all love baking- and some of us love to cook, too! I would love to share our family recipe for Chocolate Chips. They can be altered to include white chips, macadamia nuts, or Heath bar chips.
ENJOY- we certainly do!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 cup Fleischmann's margarine (original sticks)
3/4 cup"Free flowing" light brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cups white all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Mix in (with a spoon) 12 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Place spoonfuls of batter onto a cookie sheet that has been covered with a sheet of parchment paper. (12 to each pan)
Bake in oven (one sheet of cookies at a time) for 7-9 minutes, depending on your preference for soft or firm cookies.
When cooled, transfer to a container, separating each layer of cookies with parchment paper to ensure the cookies will not stick together while being stored.
