IMG_8537

I love baking and homemade chocolate chip cookies are my all time favorite things to make and indulge in. After trying several dozens of recipes over the years, I’ve found the following to be the very best. It’s an edit of Nestle’s chocolate chip cookie recipe. 

Ingredients (makes 5 dozen cookies)

2 1/4 cups  all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon  baking soda

1 teaspoon  salt

1 cup (2 sticks)  butter, softened

3/4 cup  granulated sugar

3/4 cup  packed brown sugar (I’ve used both light and dark, works the same)

1 teaspoon  vanilla extract

2  large eggs

2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet morsels (chunks may be used if prefered)

1 cup  chopped walnuts (may substitute for any nut of preference)


Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350ºF.

2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl.

7. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto baking sheets. I flatten them out a bit so they are the perfect balance of crispy on the edge and soft on the inside.
