Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies

My family loves chocolate chip cookies.  This is the most requested cookie in my household, even though I can make some pretty good baked goods ... pies, cakes & loaves ... it's the simple things that they seem to love best.  A couple of weeks ago I asked my son if he would like me to bake him something for when he came home.  He'd been under a lot of stress with the workload at school, and end-of-semester exams.  He immediately said "chocolate chip cookies".  And I was happy to oblige ...

Would you care to make some yourself?  Here's my recipe:
Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips*
Combine flour, baking soda, salt & chocolate chips.  Set aside.  Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Blend in flour mixture.  Gently roll into 1-1/2-inch balls and place 2-inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake in 375F oven for 8 - 11 minutes until golden brown.  Makes about 3 dozen
*ok, so maybe I put in the entire 350g bag of chocolate chips rather than measure them out ;)

These are nice & buttery and don't last long!

so keep the lid on
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Yummm.......they look delicious! We love chocolate chip cookies around here too. :)

  2. They look awesome Wendy!! You are an awesome baker!! I have never seen anyone else's cookies look so much like my mom's but yours do...which only means one thing...they ROCK! A wonderful day to you friend! YUMMY!!! Nicole xoxo

  3. Yum! I love choc chip cookies too and if you use white choc chips they are especially delicious!

  4. And the chances of the lid actually being kept on are...... They delicious though and were very well received by your son I am sure! xx

  5. They sound wonderful, Wendy. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I love to make them too, easy and everyone loves them!

  6. They sound rather fantastic.... might have to try them if only to compare with our current favourite choc chip cookie recipe. I wish we could buy chocolate chips in 350g bags instead of our puny little 100g bags though!

  7. Awwwwwwww, a sweet old standby, which says "home" and "love." I'm sure he enjoyed them.

    And what amazing photos of them, you post!

    Gentle hugs,

  8. They look yummy and who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies, my youngest son is coming home for a week on Monday, I think I will try your recipe and make some for him :)

  12. Wendy, those cookies look soooooo good! Chocolate chip cookies are one of our favorites, too. I love your cookie jar, it's so pretty.



  13. Tasty cookies. i have eaten this when i was in Singapore for short time and i love it.

  14. Ooooh they look sooooo good Wendy - choc chip cookies are big faves around here too - thanks for sharing your lovely recipe! Hugs, Joy xo

  15. A mouthwatering jar of cookies Wendy. I'm having a cuppa at present and could just do with one.
    Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  16. The problem is, I make the cookies and then I end up eating them. The rest of the family has much better self control than me.

  17. Chocolate Chip cookies are my absolute favourites, no nuts or sultanas added, just as is! Mel x

  18. These look absolutely mouth watering delicious! Is there any better tasting than one of these delectable little morsels of pure buttery and chocolatey goodness! Great recipe!!
    Warm hugs!

  19. Oh now I've got the worst craving for a chocolate chip cookie! They are one of my favourite biscuits, especially when soft and buttery, and these look divine!

  20. Hello Wendy! It looks like I have fallen behind in my blogging :( Moms make the best chocolate chip cookies ever. I am sure these really lifted your son's spirits when he came home from school. I can remember those days when school was so ick. Next time I make chocolate chip cookies, I will give this recipe a try!

  21. Oh my goodness, Wendy, these look so good! I could just do with a couple to go with my mug of tea ...

    Thanks for popping over to Thriftwood earlier, I've been getting on with having clear outs too ... It does help declutter the mind too! I'll be visiting g the charity shops too next week ... So glad that you can feel spring in the air ... It's about time you had some warmth!

    Love Claire xx
