3. Add sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla and stir until well blended

4. Add the flour and baking powder and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips

    Here's a tip: The recipie calls for the butter to be melted. This causes the 30% of butter that is actually water to come out into liquid form. The water mixes with the gluten from the flour to make the cookies CHEWY!!!! YAY!! - Just a tip: don't over mix the cookies or they'll end up way harder than you want.

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!! I am so going to try these!! :-D

  • what is dat? on March 4, 2006 at 7:53 PM
    the picture is so nasty.. it makes it look as if it was somethin really disgusting. Have a picture that makes the reader crave for that certain dessert, not one that will make you throw up
