So named because they won first prize at the Brooklyn (Connecticut) Fair. I prefer my cookies soft and chewy, that’s why the oven temp is so low and the baking time so long, but, if you prefer a crispy cookie, I would suggest baking at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. (If you prefer crispy cookies, preheat to 350 degrees.) Spray baking sheets with non-stick baking spray or use parchment paper.
In a small mixing bowl with a wire whisk, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large mixing bowl, with electric mixer set at medium speed, combine brown and white sugars until blended. Combine butter with sugars and mix well. Add eggs and vanilla; mix with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add flour and chips, a little at a time each, and mix well using a sturdy wooden spoon. Drop dough onto prepared baking sheets by teaspoonfuls, or use a cookie-dough scoop. Bake for 22-25 minutes for chewy cookies, or about 10-12 minutes for crispy cookies.
