Jeremy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies (Kinda)

At Teah’s Christmas party last night she had all kinds of fancy foods and well I just ate the cookies so after being inspired I decided to bake cookies with Tyler today.  I know I haven’t had a chance to test my cooking skills much so I figured I might as well learn now without someone seeing my blunders while it is just me and Tyler in the kitchen.  I’ll try and remember to bring some into work tomorrow if anyone wants to risk trying my baking.  I think they turned out pretty well and let me tell you Tyler definitely approved.  The recipe below is from the back of Safeway’s chocolate chips.

Bake these luscious cookies just the way you like them – a few minutes less for soft, chewy centers, a few minutes longer for crisper cookies.

1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed golden brown sugar 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs 3/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons milk or water 1 11.5 oz. package Safeway Milk Chocolate Chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Mix in eggs, milk or water, and vanilla.  Mix in flour, soda and salt until incorporated.  Mix in milk chocolate chips and nuts.  Drop by rounded teaspoons 1 1/2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.  Bake for 11 to 12 minutes.  Cool 2 minutes and remove to racks.  Makes about 60 cookies.  Recipies developed by cookbook author Mariene Sorosky Gray.
