Hershey's Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's actually kind of a miracle that I got to make these cookies at all. The little guy wouldn't eat for his father and then fussed until I took him. So, he sat on the counter in a bouncy seat while I explained that Hershey's cookie recipe is pretty good. The only downside is that I didn't see a high altitude version of this recipe. (Not sure if it was on the bag at all but it is on their website) The end result was tasty yet flat chocolate chip cookies.


    • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    •    1 teaspoon baking soda
    •    1/2 teaspoon salt
    •    1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
    •    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    •    3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
    •    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    •    2 eggs
    •    2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips or HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. 

  2. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. 

  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 5 dozen cookies.
