Awesome chocolate chip cookie recipe!!!

I made these awesome chocolate chip cookies a couple of days ago and thought I would share the recipe.

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup AP flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 (6 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 toasted slivered almonds


Preheat oven to 350. Spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick spray or line with parchmentpaper. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attchment, beat the butter and sugar together until creamy. Remember this is the creaming method, so scrape down the sides of your bowl. This will take about 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until incorpirated.

In a seperate bown sift the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Add to the butter mixture and mix until just blended. It is important that you do not over mix this step. Stir in the choclate chips and almonds.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until browned on top but still soft, about 12 to 14 minutes.


That was the recipe in the book and I made one batch that way and another batch I changed a little bit. My variation on the recipe was, I added some recess peanut butter chips in place of some of the chocolate chips. So 3 ounces of each type of chip. I also added a tsp of ground ancho chili powder.

I hope everyone enjoys making and eating these cookies as much as I did.

Thanks so much for the recipe! I am definitely going to make these, as I have a big bag of slivered almonds I need to use up. I've never tried them in chocolate chip cookies, so I am eager to give these a go....

Do you think it would good if I added some orange zest to the cookies? I mean I love orange zest in baked goods, but I am not sure if they would go good in these cookies.

What is AP flour? Is this a recipe you created yourself or you got from somewhere?

all purpose flour Sorry about using the abbreviation for it. I did not create this recipe myself I got it from a cook book. I wish I could create baking recipes myself, but I am not that great of a baker yet.

MT, I think orange zest would be very good in these cookies and would kick them up a notch from ordinary chocolate chippers. I'm going to try that, too. First one to do it should report back! (I just bought a bunch of good cookies at Costco today, so probably won't be baking cookies this week, though.)

I have been adding cinnimon to my CCCs for a few years now. Cinnimon and cocoa are same region spices. For a little extra, add some chipotle powder (just a bit like 1/2 tsp per batch).
