HERSHEY'S Chocolate Chip Cookies

I usually try not to repeat cookies but a classic like Chocolate Chip, well, that gets a Free Pass. These are slightly different though, cuz they're HERSHEY'S Famous Cookies! Move over, Mrs. Field's! They're fluffier and not as crunchy so if you don't like soft cookies, they're probably not your style. They're yummy though and look how perfectly round they are! You know what the secret is? Well, I used to try to bake a dozen cookies per baking sheet and the cookies would spread and then look all messy. SO this time, I only baked 6 per sheet and Voila...PERFECTLY round cookies! Also, I kept the dough chilled in the fridge, which I think also helped keep the cookies from spreading too much. You learn something new every time right? :)

Ingredients: (5 dozen cookies)

2¼ c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 c (2 sticks) butter, softened
¾ c granulated sugar
¾ c packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 c Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 c chopped nuts (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
