Dallas/Joni Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Here is the recipe. For the record, Joni was the one that would always make the most tasty chocolate-chip cookies. She gave me the recipe and I did minor adjustments to the cookie you had last night. That being said, enjoy this as often and as much as possible.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Dallas and Joni


3/4 C sugar
3/4 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C butter (salted)
1/2 C margarine (cheapest yellow tub kind you can find)
1 large egg
1 T hot water
1 t vanilla
2 1/4 C all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
1 T baking soda
1 bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips


Heat oven at 375ยบ.

Place butter on counter for at least 45 minutes to soften.

Beat sugar, butter, vanilla, egg, water, in large bowl with electric hand-mixer on medium speed. Mix until completely smooth. With same hand-mixer, mix in flour, baking soda, and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips with large wooden spoon.

For smooth cookie look, round a ball of dough by tablespoon about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake first round at 8:30. Bake second and third at 8 mins.

OK, Dallas, you get a star on your forehead! Did you notice that there wasn't even a crumb left in your cookie jar. By the way it is so nice of you to give credit where credit is due to your little sister, but we do note that you have tweeked the recipe a tad which only made it better than ever! Tons of thanks and chocolate kisses for bringing them to tempt us all. I still have part of one hiding. I can only have one small bite a day. W.W. doesn't go for them too well. Yummy hugs! xoxox mama

Oh by the way, I know you are all probably so much smarter than me at this thing called a computer, but I find that I can highlight the posted comments and save them to my specific file, like my journal or in this case my recipe file of cookies! Wala! xoxoxo mama

De-lish. I seem to think that really good cookies have something to do with the person who makes them. We call them Dallas Cookies. He and Joni have made them so much better than tollhouse.
