I think you'll agree that chocolate chip cookies are the most popular cookies around (homemade, at least - Oreos are the most popular store-bought). There are recipes for soft, chewy, gooey, or crunchy chocolate chip cookies, and chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal, coconut, nuts, other flavored chips, etc. In fact, I own 2 cookbooks with nothing but different recipes for chocolate chip cookies, and I'm sure there are more.

Summer is coming and we serve lots of cookies with ice cream at backyard barbecues, so I thought it might be fun to see how most of you like your chocolate chip cookies. It'd be nice if you have a favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies that you'd be willing to share. I always like an excuse to try a new cookie recipe, and I plan to try any that you post. Even if you don't post a recipe, please tell us how you prefer your chocolate chip cookies.

Today I'm making some chocolate chip cookies that have oats, coconut, and cornflakes that my family used to love. I'll post the picture and recipe for them.

Anyone?

Hi Karen,

My whole family loves chocolate chip cookies. I guess that is not surprising, for most people do.

I had a recipe years ago that was so yummy. I got it out of a magazine and made some variations to the recipe. They were called Jumbo something cookies.

The recipe called for oatmeal, chocolate chips, dates, raisins, peanuts, peanut butter, and I added butterscotch chips. Do you have a recipe like that? I had to stop making them when we found out my son was allergic to peanuts. I lost the recipe and cannot find it anywhere.

How do I prefer my chocolate chip cookies? Warm and in my mouth, with a glass of milk standing by. smile


Walk in Peace and Harmony.

I like them crunchy. I used to have them with milk, but graduated to tea a long time ago.

Still I wouldn't say no if someone offered me some soft, warm and gooey ones!

I don't like chocolate chip cookies either (the smell of them baking actually grosses me out) which is weird bcz I LOVE dark chocolate and I also love all kinds of other cookies. I used to make them for my ex husband though and he loved the Ghirardelli recipe I used and so did all the guys at the gym when I would take in the leftovers. I just used to eat the chips.

I like them right out of the oven....nice and warm and chewy. Sometimes with just a bunch of chocolate chips, and sometimes with walnuts or pecans added.

Phyllis,

I'm wondering if your Jumbo something cookies are a variation of Monster cookies (the recipe with picture is on the dessert site)

1/2 pound butter (2 sticks)
1 1/2 pounds peanut butter (about 3 cups)
6 eggs
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla
2 teaspoons corn syrup
4 teaspoons baking soda
9 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups M & M's Candies

Preheat the oven to 350�.

Cream the butter, peanut butter, eggs, sugars, vanilla, and corn syrup until light and fluffy.

Add the oatmeal, a cup at a time, mixing well after each cup, adding the soda along with the oatmeal.

Stir in the chocolate chips and M & M's candies.

Scoop 1/4 cup size balls onto parchment-lined baking sheets; 8 to a sheet to allow for spreading.

With dampened hands, flatten each ball slightly.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are browned on the edges and fully set in the center. Make sure you don't underbake or they will fall apart.

Remove from the oven, let sit on the baking sheet one minute, then transfer to cooling racks.

Store cookies in an airtight container.

My version doesn't include dates, raisins, or peanuts, but it has M&M's instead. I'm going to try the recipe leaving out the M&M's and adding those ingredients, and of course butterscotch chips like you added. Let me know if this recipe is close. The recipe doesn't call for flour, and makes fabulously chewy cookies.
