The cast of Characters: Brown Sugar, Regular Sugar, Flour, Eggs, Baking Soda, Salt, Butter, Chocolate Chips, Vanilla Pudding, and an iPhone… I cook with my iPhone, don’t you?… LOL. Oh and the two who were camera shy, vanilla & Oatmeal
Preset your oven to 375 degrees
1 Cup of butter or 2 sticks. Put them at room temp (or in the microwave for 20 seconds) into the mixer. And beat them! Add 1 cup packed Brown sugar. 3/4 cup of White sugar (regular sugar, granulated sugar, shuga, whatever you want to call it!)
Vanilla. Now it calls for 1 tsp. My grandma always said you couldn’t have too much vanilla so I NEVER measure my vanilla because of her. Beat this all together. Then add 2 eggs. Next comes 2 cups of flour. Beat. Next, add 1 tsp of baking soda and 1 tsp of Salt
Now my grandma’s secret ingredient. 1 pkg Vanilla pudding. I used French vanilla because all I could find was French Vanilla or Coconut.
Next, you add Oatmeal. It calls for 2 1/2 cups. She usually (and so do I) adds 1/2 cup of regular oats (not ground up). And then use a food processor to grind up the other 2 cups. Beat all together.
Next comes the Milk Chocolate Chips. You can also vary from this and add Butterscotch chips or one of her favorites is those orange slices, she cuts them up and makes orange slice cookies or M&M’s. Use your imagination. I was boring and went with Milk Chocolate Chips.
Mix that all together!
Drop by teaspoon onto a baking sheet. Now here’s a cool fact. If you use the ice cream scoop as pictured above, if you look inside, usually on the swinging arm there is a number. That number actually tells you how many scoops of that size you can get of ice cream out of a 1 Quart Container. That number is usually present on all ice cream scoops with the swinging arm.
Once you have all the cookies on the baking sheet you can flatten them or leave them as is. If you leave as is, they don’t flatten in the oven… so depends do you want a flat cookie or a big round cookie. You decide.
Now her recipe calls for 10minutes and 30 seconds but in my oven that got them a little done for me so I went with about 9:50.
And there you have it… Grandma’s Chocolate Chip cookies. Now… has anyone seen my darn cell phone?
On a side note, I was baking something one night when I still had my Pantec Duo cell phone and I covered the sucker in flour. I’ll warn you right now, it Hates being covered in flour. It halfway quit working. To be able to talk to someone, they could hear you just fine but you had to put them on speakerphone b/c the earpiece to hear them went away… it DIED! So don’t try that at home!
