Cookies, cookies, cookies!

So yes after writing my earlier post & book review, I really made my Dad’s awesome chocolate chip cookies!  I highly recommend his recipe- they are just a little crispy around the edges, chewy, with the perfect ratio of sugar, butter, and chocolate chips!  I hope you’ll make a batch and share with the people you love!

Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cup Butter (softened)
1½ cups Brown Sugar (packed)
½ cup White Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Eggs
1 & 3/4 cups Flour (use Bread Flour instead of all purpose)
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 cups Chocolate Chips
2 cups Walnuts

1)  Turn on oven to 350° F
2)Place softened butter in mixing bowl along with brown & white sugar & vanilla and mix on low – about 3 minutes
3)Beat 2 eggs in a small mixing bowl and add to mixer bowl – mix on low – about 3 minutes
4)Combine flour, salt and baking soda in small bowl, stir and add incrementally to mixer bowl – mix on low/medium about 5 minutes
5)Stir in chocolate chips and nuts
6)Place rounded teaspoon of mix on baking sheet – 3 across, 4 down
7)Bake with timer for 9-11 minutes – I find that 10 minutes works well
8)Enjoy and share
