The Best Tasting Cookie

A delicious soft chocolaty cookie. I have been making these double stuffed chocolate chip cookies since I was first married. Now my husband, my 3 children, my daycare children, and my extended family ask for them. Made by hand. It takes a bit longer then a mixer but tastes so much better.. Everyone loves theses cookies. The secret's out! Make these cookies, and you won't be disappointed.

Who Invented the Chocolate Chip Cookie?

Ruth Wakefield was baking her Butter Drop Do cookies in her restaurant "Toll House In." When she ran out of baker's chocolate, she substituted with a Nestlé's semi sweet chocolate bar. The pieces did not completely melt as she thought they would, They softened instead. Nestlé's and Ruth struck a deal, her recipe on the packing of the chocolate chips and Mrs.Wakefield would receive a life supply of chocolate.

Double Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies


This recipe started out from Pillsbury cookbook my mother gave to me when I left home. The ingredients are the same but, the way I mix it is totally different. It makes for a richer gooier cookie. All done by hand. If you must use an electric mixer it will make for a harder cookie. In the original recipe it calls for mixing the sugars, fats, eggs and vanilla in one go, but I cream the fats and sugar separately from the egg and the vanilla, because the egg is used as a binder and shouldn't be thrashed about. I doubled the amount of baking chips to two 6 oz bags so I could mix and match different flavors. I also cut down on the baking time because, the cookies continues to cook while on the cookie sheet.
