Chocolate Chip Cookie Bake-Off

#2: Beth's, Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

As I reached for my own go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, click here, recently, I remembered my sister, Beth, mentioning that she had thrown away all recipes and had just one family favorite chocolate chip recipe now. The simple 2-in-1 recipe I shared, last week, makes a chewy or a shortbread cookie and I know that Beth's are another yummy variation. This gave me an idea. While we're here visiting, I've asked several family members to bake their favorites for us and, with this research, they've given me permission to assemble our tried and true, family favorites to share with you at willowday.

#2: Beth's Chocolate Chip Description:
This recipe produces a beautiful and consistent, full-bodied, chocolate chip cookie that remains chewy in the middle.

2 1/4 C. Flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
1 C Butter, room temperature
3/4 Sugar
3/4 Brown Sugar
2 T Vanilla
2 Eggs
16 oz Chocolate Chips
1 Cup White Chocolate Chips
1 1/2 Walnuts ( optional)

Cream the butter, then add the sugars and beat well until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well, except chips. When well combined, fold in the chips and optional, walnuts. Bake 9-11 minutes at 375 F. Removed from oven and cool.

  1. okay - done deal! these sound so delicious (and I've never made a half decent cookie before, I blame it on being british!) my new kitchen is (at last) being installed today, so this weekend I plan to make these cookies the inaugural baking in the new cooker!!!)

    1. I somehow missed your comment. My sister has thrown away all other recipes! Good luck and I hope your new oven is bringing you inspiration!


Thank you!
