Mrs. Sibb’s Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Aspen and Eva first look for clues at Mrs. Sibbs’s house. She offers them a chocolate chip cookie. Mrs. Sibbs ageed to share her recipe with us. She wants you to try it!
What you need:
1 ½ cups salted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup crushed pecans
1 bag milk chocolate chips
Cookie drying rack
4 hot pads
1 mixing bowl
1 gallon Ziploc bag
1 rolling pin
1 pair scissors
1 tablespoon (1 TBS)
1 teaspoon (1 TSP)
2 spoons or 1 cookie scoop
Tip 1★: Mrs. Sibbs says always do your prep work and your cooking will go smoothly.
1) Wipe off the kitchen counters with soapy water. Better wash off the table too, so you have plenty of room to work with.
2) Heat the oven to 350°F.
3) Add parchment paper to cookie sheets.
Tip 2★: Mrs. Sibbs says parchment paper will make clean up so much easier.
4) Set up your cookie drying rack. Lay out your hot pads.
5) Get out everything you need for this recipe, including all ingredients and tools.
6) If your pecans are not crushed do this first. Measure 1 cup of pecans into the gallon Ziploc. Seal it tight. Roll the rolling pin back and forth across the top of the nuts until they are crushed.
7) Use the scissors to open your bag of chocolate chips. Set the open bag carefully to the side.
Ok, now you’re ready to start COOKING!
Tip 3★: After you add each ingredient to the mixing bowl, put it away. This will make clean up easier.
1) Measure the butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and eggs into the mixing bowl.
2) Mix the ingredients with a mixer until they are fluffy. Tip 4★: Use the spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl. Make sure everything is well mixed now, before you add the dry ingredients.
3) Mix in the flour, baking soda and salt until the dough looks smooth. Tip 5★: Use the handle of the spatula to scrape across the top of the full measuring cup. Scrape the extra back into its container.
4) Stir in the chopped pecans and chocolate chips.
5) Use 2 spoons or a cookie scoop to measure out balls of the dough. Place them about 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet.
6) Have and adult put them in the oven. Set a timer for 11 minutes. Tip 6★: These cookies are best not cooked too long!
7) When they are light brown around the edges have an adult remove the cookies from the oven. Let them cool for two minutes.
8) Gently move the cookies to a cooling rack.
9) Repeat these steps to make more cookies, or roll the dough into small balls and freeze them until next time!
10) Don’t forget to try one while they’re still warm with a fresh glass of milk!
Tip 7★: Mrs. Sibbs says don’t forget to clean up. Today’s clean up is the beginning of tomorrow’s cooking lesson.
1) Set your mixing bowl in the sink and fill it with warm soapy water. Add your cooking tools.
2) Put away anything left out. (This will be easy if you followed tip 3)
2) Wipe off the counters.
3) Sweep the floor.
4) Wash the dishes. Tip 7★: See if you can trade someone a cookie for washing the dishes. You never know, sometimes this works.
