Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been making these chocolate chip cookies for over 7 years now.  I found this recipe in “Sweet Maria’s Cookies Jar” recipe book and they are great.  This is a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe but it is the best.



½ pound butter, softened      IMG_0188

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

2/14 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

2/12 cups chocolate chips

1 cup walnuts coarsely chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In an electric mixer, on medium speed, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light. Add vanilla, and eggs. Mix until well blended.
  3. On low-speed, add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix just until blended.
  4. Stir In chocolate chips and nuts
  5. Drop dough from a teaspoon onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet, spacing cookies 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  7. Remove cookies sheet from the oven. Using a metal spatula, remove cookies from the cookie sheet and place on a wire cooling rack. Cool on wire racks. Store cookies in an airtight container.
