Mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is taken from the 2014 Milk Calendar. "These are a family favourite, especially fresh out of the oven. Nothing beats a few warm cookies and a big, cold glass of milk. Except, maybe, two cookies sandwiching a big scoop of real ice cream — it’s the tastiest way to beat the summer heat!
- "Recipe from Andrew Campbell from Strathroy, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter softened
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Milk
  • 1 - 2 cups (250-500 mL) chocolate chips

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Butter large baking sheets or line with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla extract until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add flour, baking soda and milk and stir with a wooden spoon until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls (15 mL) onto prepared baking sheets, at least 3 inches (7.5 cm) apart.

Bake, one sheet at a time, for 10 to 15 min or until golden around the edges and set in the centre. Let cool on sheets for 2 min, then transfer to racks to cool.

Tips

Layer cooled cookies between waxed or parchment paper in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months.

Tip for Kids: Make mini cookies, using a heaping teaspoon (5 mL) of batter. Use candy-coated mini chocolate chips or add colourful sprinkles on top of the batter just before baking.

Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped honey-roasted peanuts or candied almonds with the chocolate chips.
