Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love chocolate chip cookies… especially when they are warm & the chocolate chips are soft…

I also like my chocolate chip cookies flat & chewy but my family likes them soft & slightly doomed. Martha has information on how to make chocolate chip cookies in 3 different ways…by adding slightly different amounts of ingredients. Here is a link to a video about this…how to make chocolate chip cookies either soft & chewy, thin & crisp or cakes. It is a really good resource…

Here is the recipe from that I love to make


2 1/4 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup butter, unsalted, room temperature

1/2 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp salt ..if you are using salted butter, I leave this out

1 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

2 large eggs

2 cups chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350f    Line baking sheets with parchment paper

  1. Mix the flour & baking soda together & set aside
  2. In a mixer mix the butter, white sugar & brown sugar together until well combined
  3. Add the salt, vanilla & the 2 eggs. Mix well, scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to make sure all of the ingredients are mixed well
  4. Now, add the flour & mix
  5. Add the chocolate chips…its best to remove the bowl from the mixer & stir the chips in by hand
  6. Use a tbsp cookie scoop if you have or just use a heaping tablespoon of dough & put onto the prepared baking sheets
  7. Bake the cookies for about 8 -10 minutes until the edges are golden brown
  8. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes to firm up…then remove them & let the cookies cool completely on wire racks
