When I think of comfort foods, I think of warm chocolate chip cookies and milk. So when I was searching through recipes in my 1950 Betty Crocker Picture cookbook, this was naturally one of my first choices for making dessert.
Isn’t she a beauty? Sure, she’s got some cosmetic flaws, but for almost 60 years old, I don’t think she’s half bad! In the inside, the pages are still pristine, complete with substitutions and detailed explanations of some of the more complicated cooking techniques.
The set up of this cook book has basic recipes at the top of each page and substitutions/changes/advanced techniques below. Apparently, the original Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe comes from a base recipe called Sugar Jumbles.
Mmmm, look at those wonderful cookies! They didn’t spread out as much as I wanted (I couldn’t find the baking soda so that is why) but they were good. I also made the mistake of using dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar, which made them taste different, but they were still great! I actually liked the taste better. Needless to say, they didn’t last long.
