Grandma's Deluxe Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? We spent it working on our next project that I hinted about on Instagram. I'll be posting about that soon. 

For now, I thought I would share my Grandma's chocolate chip cookie recipe! After working in the heat all day yesterday, I decided to turn on the hot oven and eat hot cookies! Ha! It just sounded soooo good to me! I know there are about a thousand and one chocolate chip cookies out there. I did wonder for a moment "why should I share just another chocolate chip cookie recipe? Aren't there enough?" Then I banished that crazy thought. For there is no such thing as too much chocolate chip cookies!

I've tried soooo many different recipes over the years, and honestly, I love them all! I don't think I have a favorite. However, there are a few key things that I have to have in a chocolate chip cookie. If you are like me, it has to be chewy, slightly underdone and have an abundance of chocolate chips. My Grandma's Deluxe Chocolate Chip Cookies fits the bill. It calls for all brown sugar (I use dark brown sugar for an even more complex flavor) and no white sugar. This gives the cookies that chewy texture that you are looking for! This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies, depending on how big you make them and how much dough you eat ;) 

 All right, lets get down to business.

Get out your baking supplies and get baking! You've got all your normal cookie ingredients here.

Cream the butter and brown sugar, mix in the eggs and vanilla, add the dry get the idea! Try not to eat all of the cookie dough before you pop them into the oven. Or just stop here and grab a spoon. Whatever works for you. :) 

If you have more self control than I do, you should have about 26 cookies on your trays. (Do your cookie sheets look like this, or is it just me?)

Pop 'em in the oven for about 9 or 10 minutes. I like my cookies a little on the underdone side, so I would shoot for 9 minutes. I did this batch for 10 minutes and some of them were a little browned on top. It made me sad. I gave those ones to the kids 

Here's the recipe!

Grandma's Deluxe Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 and 3/4 cup all purpose flour 
1 and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 and a half stick of margarine or butter, softened
1 and 1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar 
2 medium eggs 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
1 and 1/4 cup of chocolate chips (chocolate chunks would also be good!)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

Cream together the butter and brown sugar. 

Add the eggs, mixing well after each egg is added. Add vanilla.

Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well. Add the chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. 

Bake for 9 to 10 minutes. Don't worry if they look a little underdone. They will continue to cook a bit while you let them cool. Let cool on cookie sheets for a couple minutes before transferring onto cooling rack. 

I hope you enjoy!

I'm off to hopefully get that project finished!
