Make My Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hello Everyone,

Have you ever tweaked a recipe over and over again until it becomes yours? About 20 years ago I had begun to do this with a chocolate chip cookie recipe. After about 6 or so times of making it, I got it just the way that I like it and might I say that many of my friends do too.

So blogging is all about sharing, and I thought I would share the recipe with all my blogging friends.


Here they are getting ready to go into the oven. Tip: I use an ice cream scoop to shape and scoop them onto the baking tray. They are all relatively uniform at that point.


Cooling after being in the oven.


Almost ready...


Yum! Just how I like them, chunky, chewy, and gooey! Here is the recipe, now you need to try them and let me know what you think.

Jackie’s Chocolate Chip Cookies (YUM!)


3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 butter, softened

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

18 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (yes, the more the merrier)


Place sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla in bowl. Use electric mixer. If you have a Kitchen Aid turn to Speed 2 and mix for 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed 4 and beat for 30 seconds.


Place flour, salt, and baking soda in the mixture, gradually on Stir speed for about 2 minutes. Increase to Speed 2 and beat for 30 seconds. Add chocolate chips on stir speed and mix until blended.


Drop by scoopfuls on baking sheet. Bake at 350˚ for 10 to 12 minutes. I like to do 10 minutes first. Then check and bake until just slightly brown or slightly undercooked. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a cookie rack to cool.


Enjoy!!

I have made and eaten Jackie's cookies and I can say that, yes indeed, they are SOOOO goood! To good! My thighs are still thanking her for them.... ;-) Don't worry though, I fed her a lot of severely dark brownies just to get even with her... hehe.

I made chocholate chip cookies just last night, and the recipe was almost identical to yours. I've now got your ingredients written next to mine on the page.

Oh, you bad, bad girl!!! Now I have a waterfall in my mouth that won't stop! lol :)

When Dev gets home from her last day of normal high school(woohoo!!!), I'll ask her which she would rather do: Run to the store and then make your cookies for me, or scour the bathroom. Guess which one she'll choose? ;D I'd best get on the treadmill right now to earn those cookies!!

Sherri said...

I'm copying this...I'm supposed to bring cookies to market so will give these a try! I'll be sure to give you credit for the recipe!

Stephanie said...

Are there any left? I'll get a jug of milk and be right over!!!

wishes, true and kind said...

Your cookies look great, but that fabric is to die for :D

YUMMY - I'm talking both the cookies and the fabrics. The Kona cotton would be fun to win, as I'd like to try my hand at an Amish Gwen Marston type quilt. Have you ever used peanut butter and chocolate chips in this recipe? That's what I have in the cupboard. :)

Jackie those cookies and the fabric are to die for! I am going to have to try those this weekend and order the fabrics if I don't win them.

Kim said...

Just when I am off sugar! They look fantastic Jackie.

Darn looks like I missed the batik sale by a few days!

Happy sewing

Chris Daly said...

Thanks Jackie, They look delicious!

Glenna @ Hollyhock Quilts said...

Here I am in a hotel with no means of making cookies! And boy! Would I love to have some with my coffee right now!

Cathi said...

Those look delicious! I think I can almost smell them baking! :-)

Ann Marie said...

Yum! I promised a Danish friend a chocolate chip cookie recipe so I made these in the interest of researching the best one to send. My cooking time was a bit longer than the recipe, but it worked out fine. Very rich and tasty. Thanks for sharing.

PatSloan said...

oh STOP... I'm drooling

Becky said...

Oh wow, I made these this weekend and they were fantastic. Although I will say, i couldn't shape them with my scooper, they kept sticking to it! Maybe because I used parchment paper on my cookie sheets?

Becky said...

I finally made these cookies this weekend and they were so good! We had company last night and everyone raved about them. They are gone! The only change I made was using tollhouse dark morsels which are a little chunkier. mmmmm... thanks for sharing such a great recipe.
