Better Than Your Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookie!

When it comes to chocolate chip cookies, you can’t go wrong. I’m pretty sure that this was the first snack every invented. I have never heard someone complain about a warm, fresh chocolate chip cookie. It’s the perfect snack that wakes me up from that afternoon coma and helps me make it through the rest of my day! Chocolate chip cookies are always the right way to go.

Check out what our friends from MyRecipes have to say about this:

  These are the cookies my sister who lives in Germany asks me to send her because they are all she can think about when she thinks of home. “

This is the chocolate chip cookie that makes a bad day good, solves problems and just makes you feel good. Bake a batch and share with friends, family, kids, neighbors, or anyone that needs to smile!


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) Blue Bonnet salted butter, softened
  • ½ cup Pioneer sugar
  • 1½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. McCormicks vanilla extract
  • 2¾ cups (12 oz) Gold Medal all-purpose flour *If at all possible, please weigh the flour
  • ¾ tsp. smallish-medium coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp.Arrm and Hammer baking soda
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • 2¼ cups Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until it is nice and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes on medium-high speed on a K-5). Add both eggs and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated. Finally add chocolate chips until well distributed. The cookie batter should be somewhat thick. Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough or use a medium cookie scoop and plop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown. Remove from heat and allow the cookies to stay on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes. Pick up the parchment paper with the cookies still on top and transfer to a cool non-porous surface. Allow the cookies to cool on the paper for at least 3 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
