Chocolate Chip Cookie Fun

Do you like chocolate chip cookies? Have some moments of chocolate chip cookie fun. This morning I made some chocolate chip cookies from scratch and gave them away as little summer time presents. A gift of a few chocolate chip cookies will usually bring a smile to people of all ages as was the case today on a warm June day.

A few crumbled chocolate chip cookies on top of vanilla ice cream is an extra summer treat. Have some moments of chocolate chip cookie fun.


1 cup of unsalted butter (European style)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup of Turbinado Cane Sugar 
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups of unbleached white flour
1 package (11.5 ounces) of good quality semi sweet chocolate chunks
1 cup of dark (60% cacao chocolate morsels)
1 cup of pecans, chopped
1 cup of walnuts, chopped

Let butter soften for about 10 minutes. In a bowl beat together the butter with eggs. Add cane sugar and vanilla extract. One the mixture is light and fluffy mix in the 2 cups of flour. Stir in the chocolate chunks, chocolate morsels, pecans, and walnuts into the mixture. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets. (You can drop larger rounded tablespoons onto the cookies sheets if you prefer larger cookies). If mixture is too soft add a little more flour.

Bake the cookies at 375 degree for about 10 minutes or until they're golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2-3 minutes and remove to wire racks to cool completely.

If you prefer warm cookies than don't cool them on the wire racks.
