What's Cookin'? Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Pin It!
Around here, we rarely make any other kind of cookie . . . they're THAT good!

 Here's the recipe {scroll down for the printable recipe}. . . 

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 5 cups flour
  • 4 cups oatmeal
  • 4 Hershey candy bars, broken into chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter, sugars, & eggs well. Add dry ingredients--oatmeal last. If dough still looks too moist, add a little more flour. Hand mix in chocolate chips & chocolate bars. (You can add walnuts, but my sons don't like them--so we usually don't.) Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 12 minutes. If you brown them they will be crunchy or you can under-bake them if you want them to be softer. WE LIKE THEM CRUNCHY!  This recipe makes a lot - about 4 dozen cookies, I think. (But you know me--I never count anything!) Ha ha!

Happy cooking!   Warmly, Michelle

  2. My goodness, they look so delicious! Thanks for visiting my blog today, Michelle. That's great your son serving in Manchester. We lived there for a while. I grew up around Hale and Altrincham, and my hubby grew up in Wythenshawe--both places your son might know about. We attended Manchester South Ward in the Manchester Stake House. Still keep in touch with friends from there.
