Chocolate chip cookies

On a random note, because I’m living on my own and have been trying recipes:


  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (In theory, brown & white sugar amounts are swappable, haven’t tried it yet)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (I use unsalted) butter/ 1/2 cup margarine & pinch of salt (which the recipe called for)


  1. Beat butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda till smooth (ie, use a electric beater if you have one)
  2. Mix flour & chocolate chips in (don’t use the electric beater for this part, because everything gets way too thick to handle
  3. Bake at 350F for 10 mins


First batch was horrid – way overcooked to the point that one tray was inedible

Second batch was somewhat better – at 10 minutes they looked underdone, so I left them in for another two minutes, and they looked & felt good when they came out. However, they ended up overly crunchy. I also substituted the 1 cup of chocolate chips for 1/2 cup of chocolate chips & 1/2 cup of mini M&Ms.

Next batch will be done till 11 minutes MAX, since that seems to be the issue.
