Heritage Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hamilton Beach has been developing recipes for over 100 years. While the ingredients you’d find in a typical kitchen and appliances have evolved over time, the Consumer Test Kitchen still works to develop recipes each and everyday that you can make with your favorite Hamilton Beach products.

Heritage Chocolate Chip Cookies

We wanted to create a chocolate chip cookie recipe that spoke to the Hamilton Beach tradition – both in stand mixer innovation and in recipe development.

Heritage Chocolate Chip Cookies

When developing Heritage Chocolate Chip Cookies we flipped through a Hamilton Beach Food Mixer recipe booklet from 1948 that sold for 25 cents (I don’t think you can buy anything for 25 cents these days). We noticed most of the cookie recipes called for shortening and decided to make a few different cookies for the tasting panel to try. We put three different cookies in front of them – one made with butter, one with shortening, and one with both butter and shortening – and had them chose their favorite.

While some of the panel members chose the cookie made with butter (what’s not to like about a buttery, moist cookie?), the majority preferred the cookie recipe that called for shortening. I guess the recipe developers of the past were onto something.

Heritage Chocolate Chip Cookies

Heritage Chocolate Chip Cookies are dense, sweet, and nostalgic in the best way. Remember the days spent in the kitchen with your grandparents or make new memories with your own children while baking these cookies. Pour yourself a glass of milk and grab a chocolate chip cookie or three.
