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.
Chocolate 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)
- Combine and mix first 4 ingredients. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix butter and shortening. Add sugar and brown sugar, mix until creamy. Blend in the vanilla and milk.
- 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.
- Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
- Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes until lightly brown.
- Remove immediately and cool on wire rack.
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.
