Chocolate Chip Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

Well, today I will share with you guys, how my cookie journey started. I started making cookies,1st time when my kiddo turned 2, and we visited Las Vegas. I normally carry lots of homemade snacks with me, but somehow while returning back from the trip, most of them was finished. So, I got a pack of Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, if in case she don't want to eat anything, these cookies will work (sweet stuffs always help me in keeping her quite). 

Though I loved them, she maintained a distance with those cookies. As she loves Chocolate, so I thought of giving this simple and very easy recipe a try... Being a novice, I nailed it... And it became my go to recipe.. Whether it is a road trip, or a snack time in school, it does it's magic all the time.. 

I adapted this recipe from All, but omitted walnuts, as somehow the taste of Walnut was not going perfect with these cookies.

The theme this month is Pack for a Picnic Cookies--any kind of cookie that sounds great for a picnic! If you are a blogger and want to join in the fun, contact Laura at thespicedlife AT gmail DOT com and she will get you added to our Facebook group, where we discuss our cookies and share links. You can also just use us as a great resource for cookie recipes--be sure to check out our Pinterest Board and our monthly posts (you can find all of them at The Spiced Life). You will be able to find them the first Tuesday after the 15th of each month! 

 Also, if you are looking for inspiration to get in the kitchen and start baking, check out what all of the hosting bloggers have made:
Ingredients you will need (makes about 48 cookies)- 
  1. All Purpose flour (maida)- 3 ups
  2. White Sugar- 1 cup
  3. Brown Sugar - 1 cup
  4. Unsalted Butter - 1 cup (softened)
  5. Eggs - 2
  6. Vanilla Extract (not imitation)- 2tsp
  7. Baking Soda- 1tsp
  8. Hot Water - 2tsp
  9. Salt - 1/2tsp
  10. Semisweet Chocolate Chip - 2 cups

Directions you will need-
  • Mix All Purpose flour (maida) with White Sugar.

  •  Add Brown Sugar and softened butter, stir.

  •  Mix Baking Soda with hot water.
  • Add in eggs, Vanilla essence and soda mixture to the flour mixture and mix.

  •  Now, add Chocolate Chips, and stir. 

  • In a scoop of 1/4th cup, fill in dough.. Make a ball of this amount of dough, and then break in 2 parts.

  • Place on the cookie tray at 1 inch apart, with a broken texture on the top and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until the edges are nicely browned.
  • I love to eat, atleast couple of them, when they are still little warm.
  • Keep it in airtight container, and it will last for a month (if any of your family member loves chocolate,it's not going to last more than a week).

I also prefer chocolate chip cookies to be without nuts. Great choice.

I am curious about the hot water? I wonder what would happen if you used regular room temp water? These look so good!

NOthing like a good chocolate chip cookie!
While I am guessing my mom made cookies other than chocolate chip cookies when I was young-- ALL I recall is the chocolate chips variety and I have such happy memories of baking with her.
Love to make chocolate chip cookies too as it's a favorite of the little kids (& big kids) too! And there is nothing better than homemade! Yum!
