Sometimes You Just Need To Bake Cookies With Your Sister… + A Recipe

Because sometimes that’s exactly what you need to do.  Bake cookies with your sister and call it a day.  If you don’t have a sister, a really good gal pal would work too.  You just need some tasty ingredients, good sing-a-long music in the background, and it’s bound to be a great afternoon!

I found this recipe on Pinterest.  It’s awesome because it’s called, The Ultimate Healthy Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies!  These cookies have “less butter for chewiness, more vanilla for buttery flavor, brown sugar for moisture, and cornstarch for softness.”  I have always loved simple chocolate chip cookies.  These were good without the guilt!

My sister, Kirsten, helped with the cookies and we had so much fun!


The Ultimate Healthy Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Original Recipe: Amy’s Healthy Baking

24 Cookies

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder

1 1/2 tsp. Cornstarch

1/4 tsp. Salt

6 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled slightly

2 Egg Whites, room temperature

1 Tbsp. Milk

4 tsp. Vanilla Extract

1 Cup Light Brown Sugar

1/4 Cup Regular Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

2 Tbsp. Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter and egg whites until fluffy. Whisk in the milk and vanilla extract. Stir in the brown sugar, smearing out any clumps along the side of the bowl. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated. Fold in the regular chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of mini chocolate chips. Cover the top with plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Roll the chilled cookie dough into 24 balls, and place on the prepared baking sheets. Press 5 or 6 mini chocolate chips into the top of each. Flatten slightly to about ¾” thick. Bake at 350°F for 8* minutes. Enjoy!

*Side note, I cooked my cookies 10 minutes like the original recipe said and they were too overdone for my liking.  I love cookies to be gooey, right?!  It’s taken me almost 4 years to figure out I have a very hot oven, obviously.  They will look almost under-done when they’re finished, but I promise they aren’t!  Don’t overcook them and ruin all your hard work!  Now, go grab you a tall glass of milk and a cookie, or just bring the whole plate.

Sister love,

Fallon & Kirsten

  1. My sister Barb and I used to do everything together. Bake, cook, shop, go out to lunch and anything else sisters could do. In 1995 she was diagnosed with leukemia. She was only 45 and I was 40. She went in remission for about 4 years and she and I lived life to the fullest the next 4 years. We spent as much time as we could together. Barb was a member of the church Jim and I started in Ohio and that was very special too. We did things as sisters and worshipped God together. She passed away on March 4, 2001. One of the saddest days of my life. I miss her so much. I guess I said all this to say when you have time to make cookies, make cookies. When you have time to go shopping then go shopping. Or if you have time to hang out in your pjs and just share all the things sisters only sisters can share. Peggy
