nothing beats the best

My Mom makes...hands down...the best chocolate chip cookies!
Writing and photographing for magazines offers me the opportunity
to share many things and I was so thrilled to share
her recipe for yummy home-made chocolate chippers.
Nothing fancy...but utterly scrumptious.
I thought I would post her recipe just in case you are in search
of something yummy to take to a 4th of July celebration
this weekend...Enjoy!

¾ cup of butter
¾ of brown sugar
¾ cup of white sugar
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
2 ½ cups flour
1 t baking soda
½ t salt
12 ounces chocolate chips

1.       Using an electric mixer, cream ¾ cup of butter, ¾ of brown sugar, ¾ cup of white sugar, and one teaspoon of vanilla.
2.       Continue mixing and add two eggs (one at a time)
3.       Beat until smooth
4.       In a separate bowl combine 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1 t of baking soda and ¼ t of salt
5.       Add the dry mixture slowly into the mixing bowl to incorporate
6.       Once incorporated add  12 ounces of chocolate chips and stir
7.       Drop by rounded spoonful onto a lightly greased cookie sheet
8.       Bake at 350 degrees for 8 10 minutes
9.       Allow cookies to stand on the cookie sheet for one minute then remove to a clean surface to cool.

The only thing better than her cookies...
is actually sharing them with her!
Love you Momma...

  1. What a lovely post. I lost my Mom last year but we had lots of fun together in the kitchen and I have all her wonderful recipes. (she thought her recipe book, with its torn pages and hand written recipes stuck in hither-thither) were a terrible mess, but I told her they were treasures. And they sure are! Treasure your time with yours. I can see that you do.
