Chocolate Chip Cookies

The fastest way to make my husband not angry with me is to bake these cookies. He's not angry right now, but there has been some grumbling about the lack of snack variety. I thought I'd best get some new stuff made. These are my favourite version too, though I prefer the cookies that have less chips in them. Enjoy, but be warned, the recipe makes about 10 dozen, depending on size. I hate to admit how fast they will disappear if I don't hide them in the freezer.

Cream 4 cups brown sugar, 2 cups margarine. Add in 4 eggs, 4 Tbsp water and 1 1/2Tbsp vanilla. Separately stir together 6 1/2 cups flour, 3 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt and 3 cups chocolate chips. Mix into creamed mixture. Drop onto lined/greased cookie sheets and bake 375F for 10 minutes. Let sit on cookie sheet for a couple minutes before removing to cooling rack. Don't over cook.

That is a huge recipe! I might have to just give it a try, my children are complaining a bit about the snack choices recently too. That usually happens when I get busy with other things, (like their school work!!)

Wish I could send some of this weather east, I think you all have had enough 0 and below temps for a couple of winter seasons.

I've got lots of projects to work on today, I'm turning off this computer for a bit!!

Have a great day!

The number in your house I'm sure you can use big recipes like this. Me, I almost never make a recipe unless it makes more than 4 doz. It's just not worth messing up the kitchen if I don't get more than a handful of cookies :)

You're right about the weather. I don't think we've had a winter with so many really cold days in a row.

Hope you get lots done today.

We are currently baking up this recipe and it is delicious! I am going to have to "hide" some away for church, the children love them! I am sure that my husband and our daughters fella' will really enjoy these treats tonight after work!
