Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bob's Red mill Chocolate Chip Cookies

I make this about once a month  for my 2 year old. She really likes them. I make them different every time because my 4 year old is very picky. Even though she says she likes them they are not her first choice. My husband tried them last week for the first time and he said they tasted good. He's a picky eater too.
I try to follow the recipe in the back as closely as possible but am a baker at heart. So I always end up tweaking every recipe I come across. Here is how I made them. The first batch I followed the instructions in the back.
It says to add two teaspoons of water; However, I always bake with either milk, butter milk or cream.

First batch of cookies

  1. 1/2 cup butter
  2. 1 egg
  3. about 5 tsp of whipping cream
  4. 1 bag of Nestle Mini Chocolate Chips (semi-sweet)

I feel that they are quite sweet like this, no need to add extra sugars. I've made them in the past with coconut oil instead of butter and it was just too much the coconut flavor and the sweetness. They are great just like this. I simply wish they came with more chocolate chips. Which is why I add a bag of chocolate chips when I make them. Like I mentioned before, my 4 year old is not too fond of these cookies. So for her I made the second batch a bit different. The second batch was what I had left over after the first 11 cookies I made; Therefore, keep in mind this is for half the mixture not a full bag.

Second batch

  1. 1/2 the batter from the first batch
  2. 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  3. 1/4 cup of whipping cream

These were much softer! My kids liked both even if my 4 year old claims not to like them she didn't seem to have a problem eating either batch of cookies.
