I've eaten these cookies since I was a boy. Now at 67 years old, I'm teaching my grand kids how to make them. I consider them the perfect cookie!
I am a teacher of the culinary arts in a parochial high school. This is the ONLY recipe I teach to my students for Chocolate Chip Cookies. It is the BEST.
This has always been my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I change the recipe by using 1/2 cup white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, and 2 tsp of homemade pure vanilla. I also use a mixture of milk, semi-sweet, and dark chocolate chips. Most of the time I omits the nuts, but when I use them it's either pecans or walnuts.
My son is 30 years old and all he wanted for Christmas was for me to bake and ship him these cookies. While this is hands down the best recipe, I made a tiny variation this year: half semi-sweet and half dark chocolate chips and 2 tsp of vanilla. Incredible!
This recipe my niece really likes
I haven't even made them yet and I'm already excited:P
