Not your ordinary Chocolate Chip Cookies

You always remember your first loves....

I met this cookie when I was a sophomore in high school and it was love at first taste!  It was a Friday night and I was at my friend Emily's house.  We were having fun hanging out when we smelled something wonderful coming from the kitchen.  We looked at each other and ran to her kitchen to see what her mom was baking.  We walked into a kitchen covered (I am not exaggerating...this recipe makes a ton) of the most delicious chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted.

There is something slightly different about this cookie, perhaps the extra vanilla or the amount it is whipped to give it an amazing texture.  The texture is my favorite of any cookie, note to reader...I LOVE soft and chewy cookies almost even par-baked, however if that is not the type of cookie you like...just bake longer!  :)

To this day this is the ONLY chocolate chip recipe I use.  I have the recipe memorized so I can make if from any kitchen anywhere.

As I mentioned before this recipe make a ton so I usually cut the recipe in half (I included it below for your ease).  Even cutting the recipe in half it is equivalent to a "regular" batch of cookies.

Every once in a while I spice up the recipe a bit.  See the end of the post for other variations. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Chocolate Cookies
1 lb butter (4 cubes)- softened
2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 Tbs vanilla
3 eggs
6 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
4 cups chocolate chips

For your ease...

Chocolate Cookie Recipe-Halved
2 cubes butter- softened
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbs vanilla
1 1/2 eggs
3 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips

  • Cream butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs.  Beat on medium speed for 4 min.  It will be more of a whipped consistency.
  • Add in flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix well.
  • Stir in chocolate chips
  • Bake a 350 for 8-10 minutes (for a small cookie scoop)

My families favorite- add one bag peanut butter chips to the halved recipe
My dad's concoction- add 3/4 white chocolate chips and                    
                                  3/4 cups raisons to the halved recipe
