The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. Ever.

I hope you didn’t come here looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe. There isn’t one here. Truthfully, I have a really good chocolate chip cookie recipe. Two, actually. One is on the back of the Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chip package and the other is in the Betty Crocker Cookbook my Mame gave me when I got married.

Hold on. My ADD just kicked in when the Victoria Secret commercial came on. Seriously? Next year the models will be completely nekkid because there is no where else to go. Wow. Unbelievable.

Back to not posting a chocolate chip cookie recipe here.

You see, it hit me while I was making a batch of chocolate chip cookies today that I am always falling for the Pinterest postings that say, “THE Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Receipt. Ever.” So I Pin It in my baking:cookies board and eventually print it out. I have killed a forest of trees trying to find THE Best Chocolate chip cookie recipe. Also, THE Best Brownie Recipe. THE Best way to keep your house clean. THE Best way to lose weight. THE Best anything and everything.

Instead of searching, I should be doing.


I am a wicked, full-on planner; and a easy-way-out, couch-loving doer.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think there is anything wrong with making lists. Or planning. But, at some point you I have just got to get moving.

This week, I’m cutting some things out so that I can do some things. Stay tuned. Oh, and here is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. You’re welcome.

Betty Crocker’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Total Time 45 min
Servings 48

3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened (I use all buttah, baby)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups) (since the dough is just a vehicle for the chips, I use about one cup more chocolate chips)
1 Heat oven to 375ºF.
2 Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
3 Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack. 

Love you guys.
