New Hampshire-Abbey's Chocolate Chip Cookies

NEW HAMPSHIRE: Munch your way across the USA. The state of NH is now represented. This recipe is from "Capitol Cookies" with recipes from every state & Washington, DC. This recipe was submitted by The Children's Place, Concord, NH, Cynthia A Sullivan, Chairperson.

I have personally made these cookies and they are really good. I love my toll house chocolate chip recipe but I'll admit that this recipe is just as good.

pinch tips: How to Melt and Soften Butter



approximately 3 1/2 dozen




2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking powder (or baking soda)
1 tsp
2 stick
butter, softened (or butter crisco)
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 pkg
chocolate chips
1 pkg
white chocolate chips
1 c
chopped nuts (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Combine flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
Beat butter until light and fluffy. I actually used butter crisco and beat it just as I would if using butter.
Gradually beat in both sugars. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until well blended.
Fold in chocolate chips and nuts and mix by until well blended. I use a wooden spoon to do this.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls (about 2" apart) onto ungreased cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I always spray mine even though it calls for ungreased. I also use foil when I'm out of parchment paper.
Bake at 375 for approximately 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Note: you can use only one package of chocolate chips if you want.
