Mouthwatering Chocolate Chip Cookies...

After the birthday party, I had many requests for my chocolate chip cookie recipe. It has taken me awhile, but finally I am posting it! It is another one of those recipes that has been in my family for years. The only problem with this recipe is that it makes 6 dozen. So, I don't advise making them, unless you are planning on giving half a way, which is usually what I do. If you don't give them away, they are so yummy you will eat all 6 dozen and gain weight! You could attempt to half the recipe, but I have found in baking that doesn't work so well, it alters the chemistry and they don't quite taste the same. The ginger snap recipe also got a lot of inquires, you can find that recipe here.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 12-13 minutes. Makes 6 dozen cookies.
-3 cubes butter or margarine
-3 large eggs
-2 TBSP vanilla extract
-2 cups chocolate chips
-1 1/2 cups sugar
-1 1/2 cups brown sugar
-6 cups flour
-1 3/4 TSP baking soda
-1 3/4 baking powder

Cream the sugars and the butter until smooth and a light color. (This part is key, really make sure they are blended, it makes the cookies.) Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix together. Add dry ingredients and mix. Add chocolate chips and mix a final time. Drop spoonfuls or use a cookie scoop and scoop onto cookie sheets.



  1. I have a recipe for cookies that I make often but it makes 4 dozen cookies. I always freeze half (or more) of them on a baking sheet and then store in a ziploc bag. Cookies ready to bake when you need them!

  2. I am gonna have to try it, thanks for the tip Amber!

  3. Just to verify: by 3 cubes of butter, do you mean 3 sticks of butter? or actual cube shapes of butter?

  4. Just 3 sticks, I never realized how weird that may sound!
