Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies

With the Holiday's coming soon we all will have parties to attend whether at work, with friends, yours kids school (those that have them) and what's better to bring than something sweet and yummy like Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I mean who can really resist a moist, yummy, delicious homemade chocolate chip cookie?!?!?

I adapted this recipe from another recipe I found online and I must say this recipe is AMAZING!!  I don't make them often because they are too good to have around all the time.  My husband loves them and always says I am always baking for others (that's my business, it's what I get paid to do) but never bake anything for the house.  So today I decided to make these for him since he loves them so much and I decided to share the recipe with you.

Again with the Holiday's upon us, these would be great as gifts as well, oh and for Santa too, lol.  So here is what you will need.


1 cup unsalted butter softened (2 sticks) 
1 cup packed brown sugar 
1/3 cup granulated sugar 
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 large egg yolk 
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour 
1 ½  cups  Sweet Chocolate Morsels 
Parchment paper (not pictured) is also needed

If you don't have a stand mixer you can you a hand mixer, that works just fine.  If you don't have a mixer at all you can still make these you will just have to do a little work getting everything mixed by hand.

Here are your instructions:
Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and salt in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg yolk. Gradually beat in flour. Then stir in 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chip morsels.  You can use more morsels depending on how many you want in your cookies.

I baked the cookies in the preheated oven at 325° F. for up to 10 minutes, but it varies from oven to oven. Cool on baking sheets  to cool  a litte and then move them to a plate to finish cooling and then enjoy!!

Add your 1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter softened not melted

 This cup says 1/2 cup but I used 1 cup so don't be thrown off by the picture, lol.  Be sure to pack down your brown sugar in your cup as well.

Next your 1/3 cup of granulated sugar

Then your 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Next your 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
All your ingredients ready to be mixed together.

Add your large egg yolk and continue mixing.
 Add in your 2 1/4 cups of flour, remember to level of the flour, then mix some more.

Lastly, add your chocolate chip morsels and finish mixing.

Here is your dough all mixed and ready to bake. These cookies are so good you can eat the dough, lol!!

Put cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
I baked the cookies in a preheated oven at 325° F. for up to 10 minutes, but it varies from oven to oven. Set on baking sheets to cool a little and then move them to a plate to finish cooling and then enjoy!! (this pictures not so good)

Don't they look yummy!!
What better way to enjoy warm, moist, yummy cookies than with a glass of ice cold milk. :-)
I hope you try this recipe this Holiday season or for any day.
Have a great one!!

    Sidenote: Love your Kitchen Aid mixer. My mom has been begging for one so I will probably get it soon :-)

    1. lol!!! I love love love, Redd (that's what I named my mixer) it mixes great and even though I don't have all of the attachments it comes with some great ones. I am thinking I want to upgrade Redd to a larger one though and have them both, hopefully one day!!
