Baking Part 1: Making the Dough

Ingredients for cookie dough

Follow the directions and collect all the ingredients listed on the Baking Page. Get a small bowl and pour the dry ingredients into it (flour, baking soda and salt). Set this aside for now and move onto the liquid mix.

Pour the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixer bowl and use a wisp to beat all the ingredients into a creamy substance. Crack open one egg and pour it into the mix, then toss out the shell. Beat the substance together again. Crack open the second egg and repeat the same process, making sure to beat the mixture so that no egg parts are left sitting in the soon-to-be dough.

Now pour the dry mixture from the small bowl into the large mixing bowl with the creamy substance. Now beat that mix well so that there are no pockets of flour or sugar not mixed in with the dough.

Now you have some nice cookie dough for sugar cookies. But we want chocolate chip cookies, so add in the chocolate morsels (and nuts or other additions if you so desire). Now your chocolate chip cookie dough is ready for some baking!
