Chocolate Chip Cookies

" It is the most wonderful time of the year " as they say ...and indeed it is ! It is so festive everywhere.. To contribute to all the festivities I have been baking these cookies lately for our  family and friends ( myself ) and I really thought they are super easy to make ! I had got this recipe from a friend who had sent me this Nestle link . Baking can be an awesome stressbuster ! If you have not given it a try still, please do ! You would not regret your decison..Our promise :)

Ingredients :

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup margarine, softened ( I almost never use butter these days for baking cookies.. Just trying to eat healthy ;)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 (12 ounce) package  Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup chopped cashews
Step 2 : Add eggs one at a time; add dry ingredients to wet ingredients gradually before adding nuts and choco chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt ( dry ingredients) in small bow. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract ( wet ingredients) in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. 
  3. Bake for 11-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. They are soft when you take them out but gradually hardens perfectly as they cool.
