This is my all time favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I found it originally on the back of a package of Hershey Baking Pieces, which I don't think they even make anymore. I thought I lost the recipe there for a while but finally found it and was very happy. I'm posting the recipe on Zaar so I won't have to worry about losing it again. Oh, be sure to use real butter in this recipe.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3⁄4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour (I add 1/4 cup more, otherwise the cookies turn out too flat)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- In large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and salt with electric mixer until creamy.
- Add eggs; beat well.
- Stir together flour and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well mixed.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake 8-10 minutes or until set.
- Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
These came out totally flat both times I made them, but soooo tasty it made up for it. Very buttery and crispy. My daughter called them pancake cookies!
Very good cookie! I added a full 1/2 of extra flour, the day I made them was hot and humid. I also used the new Reeses Peanut Butter Cup baking pieces instead of chips. Wonderful cookie! Thank you for sharing the recipe.
Very soft & delicious. I think I will add the extra 1/4 c of fluor next time, they did get a little flat! Easy!!
