    Why is this recipe section so quiet?? I feel that the best recipes come from yiddishe housewives sharing their tried and true recipes. I don’t wanna share this recipe (it’s THAT good) bit I figured maybe if I do, others will share their best recipes. C’mon!

    Reverse Chocolate Chip Cookies (Black cookies with white chips)

    1 cup butter or margarine, softened

    1 1/2 cups sugar

    2 eggs

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    2 cups all-purpose flour

    2/3 cup baking cocoa

    3/4 teaspoon baking soda

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    1 (10 ounce) package vanilla or white chips

    1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional- I never used them)


    1.In a mixing bowl, cream butter/margarine and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chips and pecans if desired.

    2.Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.


    Anyone have any cookie recipes using oil instead of margarine?


    I always substitute oil instead of margarine. I never buy margarine at all. It’s totally disgusting and unacceptable for any responsible human being to use margarine. Especially if you have a family. The approximate measurement is about 7/8 cup to every cup margarine or butter.


    I would post this recipe but I think there are copyright issues with sharing published recipes with large groups. So I’ll steer you to one of Levana Kirschenbaum’s cookbooks – available at public libraries – and a marvelous choc. chip cookie with oil. Just take out promptly when done. YMMV but with my oven it’s exactly 8 minutes.


    Ooh, which cookbook? If it is the one my sister has I think I’ll hijack it. 😉

    Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever (at least in my personal opinion 🙂 and they’re (semi) healthy too.

    1 cup oil

    1 cup sugar

    1 cup brown sugar

    2 eggs

    2 cups flour

    1 tsp vanilla

    1 tsp baking soda

    1 tsp baking powder

    1/2 – 1 cup chocolate chips.

    Mix everything together in a bowl. Make little cookies on a cookie sheet. Bake between 8 – 10 minutes at 350.


    For my money, the best cookie in the world is the recipe on the back of the Nestle Morsels (Toll House cookies)package. Nestle’s is milchig, so I use Bloom’s or Lieber’s chocolate chips, but the recipe has to be Nestle’s Original Toll House Cookie, and it is best if made with chopped walnuts and dark brown sugar rather than light brown. I have never tasted a better chocolate chip cookie.


    oomis1105: can you please post that recipe? As simple as a chocolate cookie gets I still haven’t found a REALLY good one!



    I can’t believe I am sharing this. Just for you guys…

    11/8 c flour

    1 tsp baking soda

    1/2 tsp salt

    whisk together in small bowl, set aside

    in another bowl:

    drop less than 1/2 c oil

    6 tbsp light brown sugar

    6 tbsp dark brown sugar

    beat until creamy (I do it by hand)

    add: 1 tsp vanilla, 1 egg, mix well

    gradually stir in flour mixture

    add 6 oz chips, 1/2 c chopped walnuts

    wrap dough in plastic, chill for one hour

    cut dough into 12 pieces, form into balls

    bake 325 for 17-19 minutes, remove from oven and let rest for 2-3 min before cooling on rack.

    This is it. Professional, real deal.

    I usually make them with white whole wheat flour and nobody knows the difference,

    mix together


    oops, got cut off…

    mix together like a 1/2 c whole wheat and the rest white for starters. Also, lots of people substitute some unsweetened applesauce for oil but I dunno if I’d do it in a cookie recipe


    shan – i did the applesauce switch for my oatmeal cookies once. the texture was a bit different but everyone liked them just the same.


    The only worthwhile tip I can add to this thread is one time,I used a box of chocholate (instead of chips) and “shaved” them with a vegetable peeler into the cookie dough. They curled up like pencil shavings and were evenly distributed thru the whole cookie.

    We had gotten the box as a gift, and after 3-4 pieces, no one wanted to eat anymore, so this was a good way to use them up.

    Let me tell you, a VERY expensive batch of cookies, but oh, so good!


    THanks for the recipes!

    Here is the Toll House COokie recipe. I never made it, I am just pasting the recipe. It’s all over the internet.

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 cup butter or margarine, softened

    3/4 cup granulated sugar

    3/4 cup packed brown sugar

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    2 large egg

    1 cup chopped nuts


    1.PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees F.

    2.COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

    3.BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

    Ooooopppppps I forgot to add 1 cup of oatmeal to my recipe.




    How would co-op homeschooling be practical for Limudei Kodesh, considering the qualifications required for it and by men who are available to teach it?


    Wrong paste, Helpful (but would love to hear your best CC cookie receipe, all the same 🙂


    my recipe, choc chip cookies supreme:

    1 bag of chocolate chips

    0 flour

    0 sugar

    0 baking powder

    0 oatmeal

    combine all ingredients in the bag the chips came in

    eat a small handful at a time

    make sure you eat enough so there is no safek about a Brocha Achrona.

    Mod 80, I have followed your directions perfectly, and it was delicious!!!!


    thanks oomis

    by the way to avoid the problem of safek Brocha Achrona, i recommend eating a cupful in less than 9 minutes, just to be sure


    Thanks BOSD for posting the recipe. I didn’t want to buy another package of Nestles Chocolate Chips in order to get the recipe for the CR, because they are milchig, and I don’t like to keep that in the house, for fear it will be used for pareve stuff by mistake. We only use chocolate chips for baking. I once tried copying the recipe off a package in the store,but the store did not look kindly on me for that for some reason. 🙁

    This really IMO is the BEST recipe I have had of chocolate chip cookies (and the nuts really make them outstanding).


    I made em tonight without the nuts. hmmm. After the yomim noraim I shall have to try with nuts I guess.
