Within my family my grandma is known for her chocolate chip cookies. She hasn't shared the recipe with anyone until now.
My grandma's recipe is loaded with three types of chocolate and nuts. She really does it right! Crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside with great texture from the mix-ins, these cookies are really superb. I hope you enjoy.
Grandma's Chocolate Chip Cookies
(4 PointsPlus per serving)
1/2 pound butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp hot water
3-4 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 cups nuts
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 oz. white chocolate chips
Cream the butter and both sugars until smooth. Add in the salt, vanilla, eggs, and cocoa powder. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water and then add in 1/2 cup of the flour, baking soda mixture, and then the remaining flour. Stir in the nuts, chocolate chips, and chopped chocoate.
Cover the batter and place in the fridge for at least two hours. It can remain in there overnight. Before removing the batter, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the batter and use an ice cream scoop to make cookie rounds. The batter will be tough to work with, so you'll need to use a little muscle! Place on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on the pans for about 5 minutes. Then remove to a wire rack. (1 serving = 1 cookie, 4 PointsPlus per serving)
