This is a very easy, delicious chocolate chip cookie. It calls for self-rising flour which eliminates adding baking soda and or baking powder or salt. Try them, they are good. Dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. I think it was a Southern Living recipe when I found it.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.
