Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Take our cookie quiz to see which cookie fits your personality.  Are you chocolate chip, oatmeal or maybe even a black and white cookie?

Chocolate chip cookies represent half of the cookies baked in American homes each year.  I remember getting off of the school bus and walking into our house that smelled like fresh baked cookies!  The aroma of these chocolate chip cookies still bring back wonderful memories for me, and I know they are making great memories for my family each and every time I bake them.

This chocolate chip cookie recipe will produce a treat that is sure to please everyone in your house!  It's easy enough that you can whip up a batch of these cookies (or even a half a batch) just after dinner so you and your family can have warm cookies for dessert.  Add a glass of milk and the smiles will broaden even more.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix sugar, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl by hand.  Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.  The dough will be very stiff. 

You can even use a Kitchen Aid mixer for this first step.  I use the batter attachment and mix on a lower setting.  Just be sure that the dough is well mixed before moving on.

Stir in chocolate chips by hand.  You'll need to use a sturdy wooden spoon for this and a bit of muscle.  You can add the pecans, or other nuts, at this time if desired.  Keep stirring and folding the chocolate chips and nuts into the dough until they are evenly dispersed.  (This makes sure you have enough chocolate in each cookie!!)

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.  The chocolate chip cookies need to be this far apart because the dough spreads during cooking.  No one wants to cut the cookies apart after baking.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown.  You may even think that the chocolate chip cookies are underdone, but they will finish cooking through out of the oven.  If you leave them in too long, the cookies will be tough or crispy.  (My kids eat them anyway.  I always over cook at least one sheet because of the phone, a child wanting some attention or some other reason)

The centers will be soft.  Let cool completely then remove from cookie sheet.  I use a flat spatula to remove the cookies from the sheet.  It helps to get them off quickly.  If you try to remove the cookies while they are still warm, the chocolate chips are still very soft and this can cause a very big mess as well as messy looking cookies.
