    Default Barb's Cookie Recipe, worth repeating

    Barb posted this recipe a couple of months ago and I tried it
    today. They are really very good, particularly if you adore
    chocolate. The dough was so stiff I ended up mixing in the end of
    the flour, nuts and chips by hand and pinching off lumps of dough
    to place on the cookie sheets. Messy, but yummy.

    Chocolate Chip Cookies - Gold Medal Flour recipe
    Recipe By: General Mills

    Yield: About 6 dozen cookies (Note: I got a dozen extra.)


    1-1/2 cups butter softened
    1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
    1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    2 eggs
    4 cups all purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt (I used kosher; could have used a little more)
    4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    2 cups coarsely chopped nuts, optional

    Heat oven to 350F.

    In large bowl beat butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs on medium
    speed or with spoon until light and fluffy. Stir in flour,
    baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate
    chips and nuts.

    On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by tablespoofuls or #40
    cookie/ice cream scoop 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly.

    Bake 11-13 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft).
    Cool 1-2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

    Notes: Gold Medal flour bag 2-8-2008. Made 10-13-2009.
    Almost more chocolate chips than dough.

    This must be some kind of terrible mistake. Barbara would NEVER
    consider making something as tacky as a Chocolate Chip Cookie.

    They're only tacky before they're baked.

    Margaret, if you say it's a mistake, then it's a mistake.

    that I don't have the call for it, mind you.

    Tacky? It's probably America's best loved cookie.
    My son and daughter-in-law loved them, anyway.

    Welcome back, Margaret.
