A Picture A Day In December: Best Evah Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thankfully the recipe was not under lock and key,
and Mrs. R was more than happy to share this amazing chocolate chip cookie recipe:


1 1/2 cups butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed yellow brown sugar 
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 1/2 cup flour
1 cups Hershey Milk Chocolate Chips (Original recipe called for 2 cups, but 1 cup was perfect for us.)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Add baking powder to batter along with salt. Stir in flour and chocolate chips. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
  3. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

A Side note: that just happens to be under rather than to the side...

When Youngest and her friend were making this recipe,
they put in 1 1/2 "cups" baking soda rather than "teaspoons"...  
thankfully Mrs. R was suspicious when her daughter told her 
she would need to buy more soda as they were now out.  
So with Mrs. R scooping out what she thought was all of the soda 
save a 1 1/2 tsp, the cookies were saved.
Yay for the Bungalow Clan!

We are unsure if this special step was the reason for the awesomeness of this particular batch of cookies.  
So to be truly responsible we felt this part of the bakers process needed to be shared in case you wanted to be absolutely sure they turned out as awesome as they did.

If you would like to try this unconventional step... by all means rock that baking soda.


PS  Yes the r.e.a.r.r.a.n.g.i.n.g. is almost complete.
       No shots were fired..

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I'll have to try this out because you know ALL chocolate chip cookie recipes must be made!!! plus my MIL did not send chocolate chip cookies in our box this year and the what she did send was VERY limited so it looks like I'll have to bake this year.... but thats okay as I'm out of practice. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing Dana! My chocolate chip recipes never turn out very I'm always on the lookout for something better!

  3. I think I'll skip the special step - but I will try these as I'm always on the lookout for the ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie - it's a quest, but someone has to take it up!

  4. Well, the cookies might have at least been very light and fluffy - ha! Cute post!

  5. Sounds good ! but I prefer eating to baking, lol !

  6. You are too funny, Dana!

    And I am going to bake them with one cup of chips, too. Two is always too many for me. Less is more, in the case of chocolate chip cookies...


  7. As great as this recipe sounds, if you halved the chocolate, I'm afraid they would have fallen short in my house. We prefer chips held together only by melty-ness and a little dough. But I will try the recipe.
    Merry Christmas. Drink in the crispy air, snowy ground and winter beauty, and for one second, think of me. I miss it so much.

  8. This is hilarious. One-and-one-half cups of baking soda?

  9. Amazing that they could be saved! I'm sure she'll always remember the time she put 1.5 cups of baking soda in the cookies!


  10. OH, yum. I'm so glad you were able to obtain the cookie recipe. Thanks for sharing it. Your comment on my blog about the burger made me laugh. I hope you all get out and get one today! :)

  11. ALWAYS willing to try a new cc cookie recipe, i've never quite found 'the one' ... looks like a pretty high yield on this recipe, I might half it and give it a whirl next week - but one question ... is "yellow" brown sugar the same thing as "light" brown sugar?!


Comments are like the applause after a show! Yay clapping!
