Krystal's Kitchen-Aid Cookies



These are my kitchen-aid cookies. When I finally got my kitchen-aid mixer about a year ago, it came with a small recipe book, and these chocolate chip cookies were in there. They're now my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. Since there's about a different chocolate cookie recipe out there as there are people, I was glad to find one easy enough to make, and that stayed soft!!
  • flour
  • sugar
  • brown sugar
  • baking soda
  • butter (I used dairy-free margarine)
  • salt
  • vanilla
  • eggs
  • chocolate chips (the kind I use are an organic dairy free kind--expensive, but K-girl can eat them!)
Cream together your sugars and butter.

add everything else but the flour

then you can slowly add the flour as you're mixing. Or dump it all in at once. :)

lastly, add the chocolate chips.

Scoop them onto your tray and bake for about 12 minutes. Yes, I know they won't look very done when you go to take them out, but they ARE! If you let them cook much longer, they can get hard and crunchy.

Let them sit on the tray and cool for a little while. That will help them be able to slide off easier.

And a beautiful card to go along with the recipe. My sister Jenni made this one for me, because she decided that my cookies really are the best chocolate chip cookies. :)

(and perhaps you can see the watermark more clearly in this photo than the others? recipesofacheapskate.blogspot.com running at an angle up the page? Captain Jax helped me figure out how to do that in photoshop! He says it's better to have something like that, because it's harder to clean off than just a label. But I like the label better, doesn't make the picture look a little 'dirty'. Anyway, what do you think?)

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 sticks butter (you can use dairy free margarine)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 bag chocolate chips (use can use a dairy free organic brand)
Cream butter and sugars, add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Bake ant 375 for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on tray for 2 minutes before moving to cooling rack.


  1. Thanks for posting a recipe about chocolate chip cookies! They don't sell the chocolate chips in Chile and I have been looking for a homemade recipe (to use chocolate bars instead).

  2. Sound delicious!!! I am so crossing my fingers for your giveaway!!

    Your watermark looks lovely. Where did you get it again?

  3. I am so jealous of your Kitchen Aid!! And it's Pink!

  4. Sorry, I think it's purple. Love it just as much still!

  5. I did the watermark through photoshop, and the title through picnik.com (thanks to mary for that site!)

    lol Melissa! I LOVE my mixer, it's my pride and joy in my little kitchen :) I think the color was called mulberry? it's kind of a maroon/purplish color :)

  6. I love the color of your kitchen-aid! The cookies look great! And I think the watermark looks good, I didn't know you could do that in photoshop!

  7. I love these cookies! Though my recent change in altitude has affected how they turn out. And I love your label and watermark! Oh, and I must say what a talented sister you have! :)

  8. If people want to take our images and go through the whole wash thing to color them in, there's not much you can do. On my food pics I'm probably gonna do the labels and fade out a watermark on the other images. Not sure yet! You can do the watermark at picnik too. Once you add the label it's in the pop up toolbox where you can choose color and such - just move the fade slider. There are some other pop up options too further down where it says "normal" in that same pop up box.

    Anyway... I don't ever think I've made a single recipe out of my KA mixer cookbook, but I gotta say those cookies look awesome!!!

  9. Your new stretched out columns look good! :)


I love your comments!
