These are my absolute favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies and I make them all the time because they are sooo good!
While I may not have an incredible track record when it comes to “cooking” in the kitchen, I flourish when it comes to mixing butter and sugar.
I went on a mission to find the absolute best chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, and after making and sampling several okay recipes, I’ve finally discovered the BEST one!
These seriously are the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER!
You will need:
- 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tsp baking powder (1 tsp of baking soda will work too; I just don’t use baking soda that often in any of my baked goods. Ask me why!)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar (Splenda might work, I’ve never tried it)
- 1/4 cup turbinado raw cane sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 12oz pkg of Nestle Tollhouse Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup nuts (optional) – I use Walnuts
Preheat oven to 375*F
Mix: flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
Blend: butter, sugars and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy, then add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Gradually add in flour mixture until all is combined well. Then dump in chocolate chips and mix. (Nuts are optional – add them now as well if you’re using them). Put drops of dough on ungreased baking sheet using a spoon for scooping.
Bake: 9-11 minutes or until golden brown (I do the first batch at ten minutes and the remaining batches at 9 minutes). Allow to cool on baking sheet for a couple of minutes prior to removing to wire rack for further cooling.
This recipe is based off of the Nestle Tollhouse recipe. I just changed it a bit to make it my own and because I thought it would be a good idea to try it my own way. I was right – the dough was awesome (I didn’t eat much – raw eggs ya know!) and the cookies are the best EVER.
*Recipe makes 3-5 dozen cookies depending on how big you like them. I tend to like my cookies on the bigger side so I usually get 3 dozen. 🙂
