These were a big hit in our family. They were SO easy and very delicious. If you are trying to shed those holiday pounds, like I am, I suggest taking them to a get-together or party of some kind, because these are almost impossible to resist.
First, you need to mix the dough for Grandma Patty’s Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies
3½ C whole wheat flour (make sure it is sifted or freshly and finely ground
¾ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 C butter, softened
1 C packed brown sugar
¾ C white sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1½ C semisweet chocolate chips
Lastly, you will add these:
M&M’s (as many as you want) You can also use Reese’s Pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream sugars and butter together. Add vanilla extract and eggs. Beat for three minutes. Mix flour, baking soda and salt. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Pat down into ungreased 13X9 pan. Sprinkle M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces over the dough and press down lightly into the dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until very light brown. Let cool for at least 20 minutes. Cut and serve. Serves about 24.
