Aunt Fannie's Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I had read Gather Around the Amish Table and really enjoyed it.  I tried the Cherry Coffee Cake recipe and we really enjoyed it.  I was thinking about making chocolate chip cookies so I looked in the book and picked out a recipe, Aunt Fannie's Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Super excited to get started, I pulled out all the ingredients first thing in the morning.

My son decided since I was busy in the kitchen that he needed to be part of the process.  I let him help measure the oil.

Then, he helped measure the brown sugar and the white sugar.  He made a little mess with the measuring but did a great job putting it in the bowl.  I had to clean up the kitchen after I was done baking and washing dishes so it was no big deal.

Then, we left for school.  I came back and added the eggs to the oil and mixed them together.

I added the wet ingredients to the sugar which mixed to make a caramel color batter.

I added the salt, baking soda, water and vanilla per the directions which seemed a little weird because the dry ingredients are usually added to the flour but I did as directed.

I added the flour and mixed to the final batter while adding the chocolate chips.

I had the chocolate chips measured and I added while the mixer was going because I have never added at the same time as the flour so I was little afraid but added before it was fully incorporated.

The final batter was very thick so it didn't get fully mixed in the bowl. 

I used a spatula to make sure everything was evenly combined.  There was a little more compacting and the batter was mixed and pretty shiny.

 I used the cookie scoop to put on to the cookie sheet but it got stuck every few cookies.

The dough formed pretty well into the balls even though it was thick and sticky.

The cookies came out pretty fluffy and settled down a little while cooling.

After they cooled, they were still really yummy!!!

The book said that it would make 4 dozen but I know that I didn't make that many because I use the medium cookie scoop so the cookies are a little bigger but it made a ton of cookies.  They were really good at the beginning but the longer they lasted, the last few cookies weren't as good as they got a little more dried out.  I hope that you try this recipe and tell me what you think!  I would make it again!!

Aunt Fannie's Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 1/2 c vegetable oil
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 1/2 c white sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp water
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c chocolate chips


Mix oil, sugars and eggs.  Add vanilla, water, baking soda, and salt.  Add chocolate chips and flour.  Drop my spoonful onto greased cookie sheets or silpat.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until light brown.  If you cook longer, you will have a crispier cookie.
