These are the cookies that the Coach gives to his students on their birthdays. Way back when he had a full schedule of math classes (he only teaches one class, now), he had over 115 students - that's a lot of cookies! I loved baking them for the kids. Still do.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
(recipe from my grandmother)
4 sticks of butter
(use real butter, OK?)
1 1/2 Cups sugar
1 1/2 Cups light brown sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla
6 Cups all purpose unbleached white flour
4 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
Stir dry ingredients into wet.
Cut 4 (7 oz.) large Hershey Milk Chocolate bars into small chunks.
Fold into dough, along with 1 Cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.
With medium cookie scoop, place on ungreased baking sheets (I do 9 per sheet).
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
This makes about 5 1/2 doz. fairly large cookies.
Often I freeze the uncooked dough balls on wax paper and then place in a ziploc bag for later. Then you can just take a few out, let them thaw on the baking sheet, flatten and bake. Yum!
