Extraordinary Chocolate Chip Cookies

'Twas the week of Christmas and all through the house, Christina could be heard procrastinating and trying to avoid her spouse. The mall was crowded - people everywhere and the last thing she wanted was to go there!!

Cookie dough is extremely coveted in my house. I can't make chocolate chip cookies without standing guard and I'll admit - the bandits made off with quite of bit this recipe.

Here's a recipe from Betty Crocker's cookbook for cookies that's quite easy to make. (If you like chewy cookies, this is the recipe for you!)

This recipe makes six dozen cookies.


1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bag (24 oz) semisweet chocolate chips

  1. In large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and eggs.

  2. Separately, mix flour, baking soda and salt.

  3. Combine both sets.

  4. Add chocolate chips.

  5. Mix well.

  6. Drop dough by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.

  7. Bake at 350 for 11 to 13 minutes.

Chris I love my cookies chewy and this hit the spot! Very good texture crisp and chewy, just the way I like them. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I think they will be a hit at my house as well.

These cookies are the bomb! I haven't had a homemade chocolate cookie this soft in a long time.
