1 t. salt

12 oz. Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips

  1. those look delicious! I have butter out softening so that I can make a double batch of my grandmother's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies this weekend ..... great minds do think alike!

  2. Great minds DO think alike! My hungry son is here for the weekend, so I have a great excuse to bake, AND its Dember which means lots of cookies. I'm going to try and add a cookie recipe here (almost) every day -because there is no such thing as too many cookie recipes! Maybe we'll see your Grandmother's recipe on Girls in Sheep's Clothing sometime soon?

  3. I changed my mind ~ I'm doing a single batch of grandma's cookies and a batch of these since I have the Ghirardelli chips (they're my fave) ~ what oven temp on your cookies, please?

  4. Melissa, Oops, sorry. I've added the oven temperature to the recipe. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

  5. thanks ~ I took a guess and did 350 since the other cookies I baked today were that temp. They're all cooling and yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
