Chocolate Chip Cookies
There is a bakeshop in the village of Southampton that has the best chocolate chip cookies. Kathleen wrote a cookbook and the recipe is in it. I made them this weekend and she didn't leave a thing out, they are really good. Warning: these are not chewy cookies, they are crunchy melt in your mouth kind!
TATE'S BAKE SHOP'S CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup salted butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp. water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 cookie sheets or line with Silpat or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
In another large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Add the water and vanilla extract. Mix until the ingredients are just combined. Add the eggs and mix them lightly. Stir in the flour mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Don't overmix the flour.
Drop the cookies 2" apart onto the prepared cookie sheets using 2 tablespoons or an ice cream scoop.
Bake them in batches for 12 minutes or until the edges and centers are brown. Remove the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
Makes 4 1/2 dozen 3-inch cookies

does anyone know how to change the measurements into either pounds and ounces or kilo's (the scales do both) but i don't know how big a cup is
Maura, thanks so much for posting this even though I can't eat it now due to just starting to get my appetite back. I'm only going to lose it again because I get braces tomorrow (again, long story).
Hollie, try this site and see if it's what you need to change measurements. http://www.onlineconversion.com/weight_volume_cooking.htm

I love Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I must admit, I take mine soft and gooey.. with the chocolate warm and melting all over my fingers.
I did make some Choc. Chip cookies about a month or so ago, and substituted the white and brown sugar with Splenda, and they turned out really good.
Hubby ate them and didn't notice the difference.
I'm glad I could help out. :biggrin:
