Recipe of the Month: Chocolate Chip Cookies

While these are, of course, best served still warm from the oven, our chef Sarah says the secret is to refrigerate the dough for a few minutes after portioning out the cookies.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Makes: 36 cookies


  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 4-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoons water, hot
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
  4. Dissolve baking soda in hot water, and add to batter along with salt.
  5. Stir in flour and chocolate chips.
  6. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans, and refrigerate baking sheet for 5 minutes.
  7. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
