This is by far the best chocolate chip recipe I have found - everyone asks for the recipe. This is the traditional chocolate chip cookie - much like a better Mrs. Field's.

  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Blend in the sifted ingredients to form a soft dough. Stir in the chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake for 8 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly golden. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Well I followed the recipe to the letter except for the nuts, and it did come out very tasty... BUT I must have done something wrong, because the heaps of cookiedough just sort of melted and my final result was a thin layer of cookie-like substance where I could taste a bit too much of egg. This is probably my own fault as I am a 16 year old guy who just tried to bake for his first time ever :) Read More

I didn't care for this recipe. The dough was not sweet at all and made for a very plain tasting cookie. Read More

This recipe was excellent! I halved the recipe since I didn't have all of the chocolate chips. I also used milk chocolate chips in place of the white chocolate ones since my family doesn't care for white chocolate. The cookies were firm on the outside, soft and chewy inside. I loved the fact that I didn't have to use brown sugar. I will keep this in my recipe file for a quick cookie recipe. Thanks for sharing!! Read More

This recipe has become my go-to chocolate chip recipe the past three years! I love the texture and taste and the results are perfect every time. They end up as a mound cookie vs. a round flat one but I like it. Perhaps i should flatten them with my meat tenderizer mallet....waffle pattern side down but I don't know. I may try it. Just happy with how it goes at this time. Yummo! Read More

I am a big fan of baking cookies and cakes and I just wanted a simple on-the-go recipe for chocolate chip cookies to use up some of the chocolate from the chocolate Easter eggs we had around the house...and I baked these cookies which were absolutely delicious!!! I didn't put in the walnuts though... but the huge chunks of chocolate I put in really made the cookie sweet and firm in the right amount....wow! Read More

These cookies tasted great! They are very sweet but not too sweet. I followed the recipe exactly except I did not use walnuts. I did not find them too cakey like others seemed to find them. I cooked them for 11 minutes and they came out perfect! Read More

The first time I baked them with one bag of mini baking M&Ms. They were perfect!!! The next time I used two cups of choc chips and although they came out thin they were still pretty good. Read More
