The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever


Really, are there any three words which go together so perfectly? Any three words which stir the soul the way those three simple words can?

Okay.  Maybe "I love you".  But "chocolate chip cookies" absolutely has to be #2 on the list.

It just so happens that I'm married to a lover of the cookies with the chocolate chips, so when I'm baking Christmas cookies, chocolate chip have to be knocked out right away just so he can relax and quit asking me when I'm making them.  Sheesh.

It helps when making dozens upon dozens of cookies that a recipe be easy.  And this, I'm sure you'll agree, is a pretty darn easy recipe.  It's not all fancy pantsy and filled with crazy add-ins.  Just straight up buttery, chocolate chip goodness.

It also happens to result in what are probably the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made.  This, friends, is what we call a "win-win".  And who wins? You do.

And whoever gets to eat them, of course.

Note: I know that everyone and their mother has their own favorite recipe which they call "best ever".  Don't listen to them.  Listen to me.

Just kidding.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt, then add to the butter mixture and thoroughly combine.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 15-20 minutes in preheated oven.**
* This is purely a matter of taste.  I don't like too many chips in my cookies and feel that 2 cups is way too much.  You may feel differently!
**15 minutes is usually enough to get that beautiful golden brown color, but some ovens (like mine) require 20.  So keep an eye on these babies and make sure they don't burn!
Do YOU have a favorite cookie recipe?

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
