Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Here’s another one of my favorite cookies. I’ve made them many times and they are far better than store-bought and will make everyone happy.

Yields 35 cookies

1 stick butter
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 tbs water
2 1/3 cups AP flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips or nuts, raisins, etc.


  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Cream-in butter, sugars, vanilla and egg in large bowl
  • Add in flour, baking soda and salt. Add in chocolate chips.
  • Drop 2 tablespoonfuls per cookie about 2 inches apart onto greased or parchment papered cookie sheet.
  • Position two oven racks in the middle levels. Bake two sheets at a time. Bake the top sheet for 12 minutes. After 12 minutes remove the top sheet and set aside to cool, then reposition the lower sheet to where the top sheet was and bake the second sheet another 2 minutes.
  • Cool and enjoy.

  1. Mike,

    Your cookies looks delicious! I have extra chocolate chips and walnuts......I'm going to make your recipe :-)

  2. It took many tries to get the recipe where it is. I'm very pleased with the results. With a couple of these cookies you can bribe Bulldog to do anything you want! :-)
    I believe in a SHTF disaster we will need comfort foods more than ever. These are one of them.

  3. I made a batch of these today,,,,,,,,,,wife says "best cookie ever" I agree.


    1. Thanks for the comment Moe. Glad you like them. But be careful they will become addictive! :-)

  4. Butter is the key. My wife has been using more butter vs margarine. She has baked c. chip and sugar in the last week...OMG talk about soft. The cookies not me silly

  5. grrr.... now I want to bake now... ;^)
