I thought I would post my first recipe today! It is one I know by heart. I wish I could take credit for it. I got it from my friend Chris, who got it from her mom....not sure where she got it. Anyways, it is amazing!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 1 Tbsp HOT water
3 1/3 cups flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 bag chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a stand mixer, cream together the margarine and sugars. Add eggs and mix until fluffy. Add baking soda, flour and salt--mix. Next add the vanilla--mix. Finally, add the chocolate chips. Using a cookie scoop, place dough on baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes.

The last time I made this, I was running low on white flour, so I substituted in 2 cups of whole wheat flour along with 1 1/3 cup white flour. They tasted a little different. I noticed a little more of a grainy texture to them, but the definitely held their shape better while baking--they were nice and thick and still super moist.

Also, I heat the Tbsp of water in the microwave for 30 seconds (until it is steaming). I have tried using hot water straight from the tap, but it doesn't seem to work as well.



  1. You have given out this recipe a million times and I have yet to try it-- that is my goal for the next week to bake away!:)

  2. Hi Donna! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate the encouragement. In the next couple chapters I will reveal God's amazing work in my life after this trauma. Stay Tuned!!

  3. Donna - thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday and your sweet comment about my dad. I'll say a prayer for your sister and brother in law too.

    And now I'm craving chocolate chip cookies, so thanks for that too :).
