Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have tried more than a dozen different recipes for chocolate chip cookies, but I was looking for something specific; something a little more nostalgic.. an aroma and taste that brings back childhood memories.

This recipe fits! I mean it's perfect! nothing less or more than a simple soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie... no additions... no extra flavors, just plain simple and classic.

Just the way I like'em....


2&1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

2. Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

3. Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

Try it.. it's yummy..

Welcome darling and I'm glad you liked it, cause it one of my favorite cookie recipes ever :)

if you want a little bit of crunch you can turn on your broiler/grill/ top of over for 2 minutes or less to give them some browning on top.


I'm going to post a new recipe for cookies, but this time with milk chocolate.
