Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to an amazing start. I spent the weekend on a little getaway with my family at our house down in Oregon. It was a very cold but we had a lot of fun shopping, trying new restaurants and going to winter fest. As a way to say happy late valentines day to my grandparents I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies to take over to their house on Sunday!
Today I am going to share with you my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe which I am almost positive every one of you has made before, the famous Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe! I make a few little changes when making them, that you will find bellow! You can also find the official recipe linked again at the end of this post!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
In a Small Bowl Combine
2 ¼ cup of all – purpose flour
1 Tsp of baking soda
1 Tsp of salt
In Mixing Bowl Combine
2 sticks of butter
** I like to use unsalted butter
** Sometimes when making these for my family I use salted butter to give them an extra burst of flavor
** Leave your butter out on the counter the night before so that it is room temperature
¾ cup of brown sugar
¾ cup of granulated sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract
** I typically add an extra dash to give it more of a hint of vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups chocolate chips
** I use 1 cup semi sweet and 1 cup milk chocolate
- Preheat your oven to 375
- Beat together the mixing bowl ingredients (butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla) until creamy. Once creamy add eggs in one at a time. Mix well until all ingredients are combined.
- Slowly beat in the small bowl (flour, baking soda and salt) mixture. Continue adding until all this mixture are completely combined. When dough is completely mixed add in the chocolate chips (1 cup semi sweet and 1 cup milk chocolate)
- Use cookie scooper to scoop evenly sized cookies onto a silicone baking sheet.
- Bake cookies for 9-12 minutes
Note: I baked these at high altitude and did not make any adjustments to the ingredients. Using the link above or bellow you can find the suggested high altitude adjustments!
