Author: landeelu


  • 1 cup two sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups 12 oz. pkg chocolate chips (I like milk chocolate)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts optional... and I always opt NO- ha!


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cream butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.
  • Add eggs and beat well.
  • Stir together flour, baking soda and salt in separate bowl and then add gradually to butter mixture.
  • Beat together well.
  • Stir in chocolate chips (and nuts, if you so desire).
  • Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned (Don't Overcook!).
  • Cool slightly and then remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.


Be careful to not overcook these babies! A slightly undercooked center is what you want, believe me. :)
