C is for Chocolate Chip Cookies (Baking with Bain)

Please note that I did not edit this at all. You get the entire raw footage except for when I had to move the camera around… So it is long and more than you bargained for. These cookies are D for DELICIOUS!!! I got this recipe out of a 1997 book Alpha-Bakery Children’s Cookbook. 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 cup butter (or margarine), softened 1 egg 2 1/4 cup flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 package (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups) Directions Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix sugars, butter, and egg in large mixing bowl with a wooden “poon” 😉 Add in flour, baking soda and salt(dough will be stiff) add chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F until light golden brown 8-10 minutes (centers will be soft). Let cool slightly, then remove from cookie sheet. Makes about 4 dozen. Share! Enjoy 🙂

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Squares. This was a special request from her son-in-law, Chris, who preferred these cookies to the traditional birthday cake for his birthday celebration! They are dark chocolate flavor, and contain peanut butter and oatmeal, making them more nutritious than the average cookie. Ingredients: ½ cup milk ¼ cup butter or margarine, melted ½ cup cocoa 2 cups sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ½ cup smooth or chunky peanut butter 2 ½ cups quick-cooking oats Place ½ cup milk, ¼ cup melted butter or margarine, ½ cup cocoa, and 2 cups sugar into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, ½ cup peanut butter, and 2 ½ cups quick-cooking oats. You may finish these cookies up in a couple of ways. 1) Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper, and let set up for about ½ hour or 2) Pour mixture into a large (13-inch by 9-inch by 2-inch) greased pan and cool, then cut into equally-sized squares. This is a traditional cookie recipe in my part of the country. These cookies are great as snacks for children, and are great as lunchbox items, but big kids like them, too!

  5. WHY IS IT THAT MY F***ING DESCRIPTION BOX DOESN’T WORK?!?!?!!?!? NOW I CAN’T MAKE YOUR DELICIOUS COOKIES 🙁

  6. My dad surprised me today with a copy of the Alpha-Bakery cookbook!! 😀 I literally squealed for joy when I saw it. I couldn’t find the copy I grew up with and was really bummed. My dad kinda felt bad that it wasn’t kept safe after all these years so he bought me a new one! I’m thinking of makeing a video for each recipe If I can. ^_^ I’m so excited!! 😀

  7. I made these no bake cookies last night and I cut the recipe in half. The cookies were gone in an hour. The cookies were really good. Thank you Betty!!!!!!

  8. I love your channel SO much! I’m an unskilled cook who is trying to learn through you! I made these for my husband today for our anniversary and they are so good! Thank you!!

  9. Thank you Betty…..have you ever made shrimp creole? I have a great recipe if you are interested…..I’m from Louisiana so I have a lot of cajun dishes!

  10. Hey Betty,
    Do I have to use vanilla extract? Hope you are having a great day! I absolutely love your videos!!

  11. I just made these last night, they were great! And just as quick and easy as Betty promised. Next time I will experiment with cutting back on the sugar. It was kind of a pyschological hurdle for me to put two full cups in. The peanut butter really adds a nice kick; the saltiness of it provides an unexpected complexity to this easy to prepare dessert! It’s more of a chunky fudge than a cookie to me, but hey- “A rose by any other name”, right?

    Your videos are awesome, B, you’re the best!!!

  12. Thanks so much for your lovely comment! I am so happy that you have been able to use some of my recipes. The main reason I keep this channel going is to help people learn to cook and to preserve the recipes of my youth for my family’s next generation and for people like you with roots in Kentucky.
