Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe created by Cynthia Gorney
Three splurge items improve these quite a bit: (1) the best-quality dark chocolate chips you can find, (2) really good cookie sheets—the heavy, high-priced kind from the household section of the supermarket, and (3) a wire cooling rack.
Servings: Serves 6
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter (don't toss the wrappers)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned or rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup Grape-Nuts cereal
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) dark chocolate chips
Directions
Preheat oven to 375°F (if you want them really crispy, jack up the oven to 400°F). Use the butter wrappers to grease 2 cookie sheets. Combine the flour, oats, cereal, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

In a second, large bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Gradually stir flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop batter by rounded tablespoons, not teaspoons (I like to use a small ice cream scoop), about 2 inches apart onto prepared pans. Bake until light golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Use a spatula to remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.
