Fun Winter Activities: Baking Cookies

By: Kelsey Wolfe/Sophomore writer

Have you ever had a craving for chocolate cookies, but don’t know where to start? Well, I love to bake, especially cookies, and I have been baking cookies since I was four years old. This cookie recipe is one of my favorites to make. 

First, you are going to get out all your ingredients and utensils. Then, make sure you wash your hands with hot, soapy water for at least two minutes. Next, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

The ingredients are:

¾ cups Brown sugar

¾ cups Granulated sugar

1 cup Butter

2 Eggs

2 tsp Vanilla

2 ¼ cups Flour

1 tsp Baking Soda

Pinch of Salt

12 ounces Chocolate chips 

 In a bowl, mix ¾ cups of brown sugar and ¾ cups of granulated sugar with one cup of softened butter. Mix until fluffy. Then, add 2 eggs and 2 teaspoons of vanilla to the sugar and butter.

 In a separate bowl add 2 ¼  cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Slowly add the powdered ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix it. After fully mixed in, add a 12-ounce bag of chocolate chips to the mixture and stir. 

On a baking sheet, put a piece of parchment paper. Put small balls of cookie dough on the baking sheet. Then, put the cookie dough in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until they’re golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 2 minutes. Repeat until the dough is gone and enjoy your chocolate cookies.

I have been making these cookies for my friends and family for a long time. They enjoy it when I make them. You should try to make these sometime.
