I was looking for a cookie recipe to take to a Chi O recruitment alum/active event tomorrow night & for tailgating Saturday. I thought I’d go with a “basic” recipe since Jason wasn’t a huge fan of my apple/oatmeal/choc chip cookies. I found this in a coworker’s Oxford Baptist Church recipe book but it was also on the back of the semi-sweet chips I used.

2 c + 4 Tbsp four
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c butter
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp water
2 eggs
12 oz chocolate chips (I used more like 6 oz b/c I’d used the other 6 oz on the cookies last week & I’m not a huge chocolate fan)

Sift together flour, baking soda & salt; set aside. Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla & water. Beat until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add four mixture & mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by 1/2 spoonful onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes.
