Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies
“There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love chocolate, and communists.” – Leslie Moak Murray
I can’t help but love that quote. When I was a kid, my grandpa always called any store bought cookies that somehow made it into the house “Commie cookies.” For him, it was Grandma’s home-made cookies or none at all.
There’s just something special about homemade cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies, so far as I’m concerned. It’s a great family activity, something even children can help with, and everyone loves eating the results.
Here’s an easy recipe for chocolate chip cookies I think you’ll enjoy:
Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 package butter pecan, chocolate chip, chocolate fudge, devil’s food, German, chocolate or yellow cake mix
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine — softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts
- 1 (6 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
Heat oven to 350°. Combine half of the dry cake mix , butter, vanilla and eggs in large bowl and mix until smooth. Stir in remaining cake mix, nuts and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are set (centers will be soft). Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
