I have a problem. If it were up to me, I’d eat chocolate chip cookies every day, all day, no question. We all have our weaknesses, and I’m not ashamed that cookies are mine. These were made quite a while back and I kept meaning to post them!
Chocolate chip cookies are the classic Grandma dessert that every family seems to have recycled for years and years. Sometimes they really do date back to my ‘great great Grandma used to make these’ to the best kept secret recipe being torn out of local newspaper, revealing itself to be just as delicious twenty years later.
This one was lurking in the depths of the internet and there is a reason these are called the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies. It’s using run of the mill ingredients that result in mouth-watering results!
Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional, but strongly encouraged)
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
In a large bowl, mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt until stiff dough forms. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
On a baking sheet, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Let cool and transfer to wire rack.
