Neuma’s Cookies

by Sally Burke on November 14, 2009

This is the chocolate chip cookie recipe that I made with my Grandma Helen when I’d spend Saturdays at her house. I learned how to measure ingredients and handle an oven with this recipe. We won’t discuss how I once set a dog food dish on fire that my Grandmother had stashed in there. Scarred me for life…we just won’t discuss it.

A #20 disher makes large cookies, bake 10 per sheet. Bake cookies for 10 minutes on the two middle racks, then swap racks and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes until they are golden brown. For small cookies, use a #40 disher, bake for 10-12 minutes and swap racks half way through. Makes 20 large or 36(ish) small cookies. Remove from cookie sheets and cool on a brown paper bag.
