My favorite cookie recipe (and my favorite cookie dough recipe!). Invented by Liesl’s friend Elizabeth Winchell.

Betsy Cookies

2 sticks butter
1 c. white sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2-3 Tbsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/4 c. cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 package chocolate chips

Cream the butter then work in the sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.

Mix together the dry ingredients then gradually blend them into the butter mixture. Add chips. If dough is dry, add a little water.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit: 8-10 minutes for cookies, a little less than 20 minutes for pan cookies. (In a 9×13 inch pan.) Or just eat it raw…
