Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter (or margarine)
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups chocolate chips

Mix together butter (or margarine) and both sugars until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients, then add to cookie mixture and mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips.Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 min. Cool slightly in pan before removing to cooling racks.

A Few Notes:

Make sure the butter is soft but not melted in any way. (I would leave it to soften to room temperature instead of sticking it in the microwave.) Whole wheat flour can be substituted; I would only do half and half, though. You can easily decrease the chocolate chips, since 3 cups is a little much. I love these cookies, and I think I would eat all 36 cookies in the batch! :) Enjoy!

A huge thanks goes to my friend Aubrey for giving me this recipe. :)


  1. This is making my mouth water! I wish we had chocolate chips.

  2. p.s. Love the new background and layout!

  3. We always stock up on chocolate chips because I don't know what I'd do without them. :) And thanks for the kind words! I really needed a change.
