Homemade Cookies: Awesome Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

The best chocolate chip cookies - ever!

Mmmm…homemade cookies! Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? This is a great chocolate chip cookies recipe that’s no fail. I’ve tried lots of chocolate chip cookie recipes, but honestly, these are the best chocolate chip cookies ever! When these homemade cookies come out of the oven, the fam is standing there, with glass of milk in hand. The only way my chocolate chip cookies could be any better is by adding nuts, which I sometimes do. Hubby, however, isn’t supposed to eat nuts, so sometimes I leave the nuts out.

For this chocolate chip cookie recipe, you can use either milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips.

 

Holle’s Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe

What you’ll need:

2 ¼ cups plain flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 stick butter, softened

½ cup butter-flavored Crisco

¾ cup white sugar

¾ cup light brown sugar, packed

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla

2 eggs

2 cups chocolate chips

Directions: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate large bowl, beat together the butter, the Crisco, the sugars, and the vanilla.

Add one egg and beat. Add other egg and beat again.

Stir in the dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips. Don’t mix any more than you have to!

Lightly grease a cookie sheet. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 8-9 minutes. If you want chewy chocolate chip cookies, don’t cook them longer than this!
