Christmas Baking: Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe EVER!

This is my grandma’s chocolate chip cookie recipe.  It’s delicious!  She always has cookies when we come to visit.  My kids might like them as much as I do, but I’m not sure it’s possible.  Of course, when I make them they never taste as good as hers, but I try.  At Christmas I like to add red and green M&Ms.

Best ever chocolate chip cookiesChocolate Chip Cookie Recipe:

  • 3 ¾ c. flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4  tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  •  1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. butter (softened)
  • 1/2  c. shortening
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp. milk
  • 1 ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 2-3 c. chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ c. chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)


  1. Combine and mix first 4 ingredients.  Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter and shortening.  Add sugar and brown sugar, mix until creamy.  Blend in the vanilla and milk.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, mix until blended.  Gradually add the flour mixture.  If the dough is too sticky, add more flour (2 teaspoons at a time) until it isn’t sticky.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  5. Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes until lightly brown.
  7. Remove immediately and cool on wire rack.

 Important Tip:

For fluffy cookies that don’t look oily or flat, pinch the dough (between steps 3 & 4).  If the dough is sticky, add more flour.  Only add the chocolate chips and nuts once the dough is no longer sticky.
