Chocolate Chip Cookies

I did not take a lot of pictures of these cookies because I wasn’t sure how they would turn out. That was a big mistake.

Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

The cookies came out chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside. Very very good. I only made half the recipe (cookies go quickly in our family and if I make a full batch we’ll eat a whole batch). The recipe below is for a full batch and makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies.


  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, soda and the salt. Mix well with a wire whisk then set this aside.
  3. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, blend the sugars at medium speed. Add the butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl.
  4. Add the eggs and the vanilla extract then mix at medium speed until its light and fluffy.
  5. Add the flour mixture and the chocolate chips then blend at low speed until just mixed. (Don’t overmix.)
  6. Drop by rounded tablespoons on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake 22-24 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown. Transfer the cookies immediately to a cool surface with a spatula.

Yum! Yum! and Yum!
