Ingredients for German Chocolate Cookies
- 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons sifted flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional
German Chocolate Cookie Recipe
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put 1/3 cup of the semisweet chocolate chips in a double boiler to melt while you're preparing the rest of the ingredients.
Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Next, add both sugars, egg, butter, and vanilla. Mix until it is well blended.
When the chocolate chips have melted, remove them from the heat and allow them to cool. (This only took a few minutes.)
Add the cooled melted chocolate to the batter and mix until it's well blended.
Stir in the nuts (if adding) and the remaining chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoons onto an un-greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Teaspoon "drops" will yield roughly 4 dozen cookies. If you make the "drops" the size of a Tablespoon, you'll get about 2 dozen cookies that are 2 1/2 inches across.
The size of the cookies is really a personal preference. Baking time is not much different.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
...So, Did The Recipe Work?
"The cookies turned out moist, 'chocolatey' and delicious!
We opted not to add the nuts, but I'm sure the nuts would have added additional flavor and texture to the cookies. They were a hit with our mailman and the entire family!
We hope you enjoy them too."
