A Scrumptious Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

by katie

I have to admit that I don’t care much for sweets, but I do love the occasional chocolate chip cookie and homemade chocolate chip cookies can’t be beat! Today, I’m going to share a recipe with you on how to make them from scratch. This is obviously more time consuming, but they are oh so good and can cost you next to nothing if you have most of the ingredients in your kitchen already. Let’s begin, shall we?

What You Need:


1 1/2 Sticks of Butter
2/3 Cup Firmly Packed Light Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Large Egg
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Package (12 oz.) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

What To Do:


Preheat your oven to 375F. Beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together with a mixer or wooden spoon until smooth. Beat in vanilla extract, egg and baking soda. Stir in flour until blended. Stir in chips.
Drop the mix in heaping tablespoons about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool roughly 2 minutes on sheet before removing. Cool completely on wire racks before removing. Repeat this until your cookie dough is gone.

This recipe will yield 3 dozen cookies!
*If you don’t have baking soda on hand, you can substitute in baking powder. Just triple the amount.

I thought I didn’t have baking soda so I discovered this little cheat online. Of course, after the dough was mixed and my first batch was in the oven, I then discovered that I DID, in fact, have baking soda. Triple check your cabinets! lol!
