A classic Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe that is sure to please any cookie monster. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies

No doubt a handful of these Chocolate Chip Cookies is mighty tasty. Indeed. But today, not only did I have to order up a big helping of self control on my part, but I had to fend off the most precious (and sneaky) children in the whole wide world to save these babies for this chocolate chip cookie recipe.

I’m participating in a new segment on Culinary Snapshot called “Through My Lens,” where bloggers cook and photograph the same recipe then compare notes. It should be neat to see how we all approach things differently and hopefully I’ll learn a thing or two.


The chips survived another day to mix it up with these partners… butter, brown sugar, eggs, sugar, vanilla, salt, baking soda and flour …


to produce this good stuff …


I so wanted to grab that spoon, pretend I was at the fair walking around with a big turkey leg and call it a day … but no! Don’t do that! I just heard about a woman who got really sick (she may have even died) from eating raw cookie dough – don’t do it. Don’t. Just don’t.


So here’s the deal … mix all that up, pop it on a baking sheet in a 350 F degree oven for 9-12 minutes and out comes some yummy, good old-fashioned, can’t beat it with a stick, Chocolate Chip Cookies. YUM! Now all there’s left to do is grab a big glass of cold milk.
