The title is a little funny to me because I don’t have a Gramma Katty. I do have a beautiful and insanely talented sister, Katy. But get this – she is having her first grandchild in January! Well, she’s not really *having* it, but her daughter is and…you get it. AND we just found out that it’s a BOY!!! I still said they should name him Lizzie, but I guess he’s in a long line of III, IV, etc., and he’ll be a V. Like Lizzie McFancyPants, V. That actually has a nice ring to it. I’ll put in another request.
Anyway, Katy is known the world over (read: our family and friends) as having THE BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe. See the above real-life picture of them. Right?! You want to eat a few hundred now, don’t you. So, in light of this wonderful news regarding my sister, her daughter, and little Lizzie McFancyPants, V, I bring you the recipe. I feel like I’m giving a long-distance dedication Casey Kasem style. America (or wherever you, the reader, lives), this goes out to you…
GRAMMA KATTY’S COOKIES
1 stick butter – softened
1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg – beaten well, until it forms peaks*
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup Nestle’s chocolate chips
Blend butter, sugars and vanilla. Add beaten egg, salt, baking soda and chocolate chips. Mix. Form 1 1/2 inch balls; press down lightly. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes.
*Note from Gramma Katty – the peaks come into play when beating the beaten egg into the mixture, not by itself. Thanks Gramma!
