Chocolate Chip Cookies!

How do you make good chocolate chip cookies? For the first time ever I decided to bake these. I am dieting and so it wasnt for me but to bring to the homeless shelter as a little snack on Sunday. So I went to the grocery store and spent several hours making bear 7 dozen chocolate chip cookies. It was a great and inexpensive snack, I think I had some ingredients at home and what I didnt have cost $10. I followed a recipe that included a ton of butter, white and brown sugar and other bad for you ingredients. I TOOK them out of the oven after about 9 or 10 minutes and let them harden. But they hardened a little too much. Do you make any special modifications when you make chocolate chip cookies? How do you make them soft? And any modification to make them healthier?

gosh 7 dozen is a lot! we baked when we were younger, but never that much. and to be given away? you're so kind and generous. i do remember a tip (which i followed) that after a few days, when cookies start to harden, put them in a sealed container with a piece of bread. the cookies will absorb the moisture of the bread, while the bread will harden. i just don't know if it will work for fresh-baked cookies. maybe taking out too much butter and sugar was the reason it came out hard?

That seems like the easier way to do. I do enjoy cooking especially if I am bored!

I usually follow the directions on the chocolate chip bag, and they come out pretty good. That so sweet of you to make the cookies for the shelter, even if they didn't come out the way you wanted.

@maezee that is true. Costs much less than buying them ready to eat from the shop

I use the recipe on the back of the chocolate chips - Toll House Cookies. It turns out every time. Yesterday when I was in the store getting some food for yesterday's feast with my boys, I was looking at the organic cases, and saw some chocolate chip cookie packs that make a dozen cookies, whose ingredients were definitely on the healthy list. However, they also cost a lot. I didn't buy them.

Ahh ok. That certainly is one of the problems with keeping on track. Unhealthy foods are so much cheaper!

You need eggs to soften them and baking powder plus corn flour to make them crunchy

Corn flour is something I didnt know to use!

I have never made a chocolate chip cookie on my own. Chocolate chip cookies are the best only if they don't taste too sweet. :)

I find that if my dry ingredients-flour, baking powder......is fresh then my cookies are soft. You can put them into containers and put a fresh slice of bread on top of them, that will soften them up over night. Good luck!

Nice. And I had just bought the flour and sugar. I am hearing a lot about the bread thing, I did not realize bread had so mich moisture!

When baking you have to follow the directions exactly. Sounds like to much flour.

That is so nice you baked them for the homeless people. I have not baked in ages. I have an old stove that was given to me many years ago here and I have not gotten a new one so I do not bake anymore because the oven part is not good to use. I buy chocolate chip cookies from the store or a bakery. I know the store ones are not the same but they are tasty.
