Grace and I make Chocolate Chip Cookies

Grace made chocolate chip cookies for her Dad.
Granddaughter Grace, who turns 15 this summer, is interested in learning to cook.  She was over today, and I thought chocolate chip cookies would be a simple recipe for her to make.  And she could give the cookies to her Dad for Father's Day, because he really likes chocolate chip cookies. 

I googled and found a recipe I thought would be good, and this is the one we used:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe: Crispy, Crunchy Delights 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Bakery style chocolate chip cookies, buttery with a chocolate crunch!
Recipe type: cookies,dessert
Serves: 10
  • 2½ cups of flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of butter, softened
  • 1¼ cups of white granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips
  1. Kick the tires and light the fires to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream together your butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla, mixing thoroughly. Beat in the flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. When that is done, fold in the two cups of chocolate chips by hand, and prepare to put them on some parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
  4. Roll a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball, 12 per cookie sheet.
  5. Take a glass and using the bottom, flatten out each cookie. If the cookie sticks, start wetting the bottom of the glass with water, they will come right off.
  6. Flatten each of them as much as you can. This is a dry dough – no sticky chewiness going on here- but it’s just wet enough to make perfect little flat cookie patties.
  7. Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on the sheets completely.
  8. These turned out to be wonderfully crispy, crunchy and were surprisingly a hit with everyone. The butter flavor really is apparent in these ones due to the lack of flavor that comes with brown sugar, but that isn’t a bad thing at all. Buttery, crispy little bites of chocolate heaven!

Grace learned how to measure ingredients accurately.

I taught her how to level a cup of flour or sugar or any dry ingredient by smoothing off the top with the edge of a knife.

The cookies turned out great, and she has a nice Father's Day gift for her Dad, with extra for the family.
