Thoughts for Thursday | Favorite Cookie Recipe

Happy Thursday! 

I thought I would share my favorite cookie recipe ever with y'all today. It's my mom's recipe, and it's my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. {That is, when I actually have time for something other than Break & Bake cookies} 

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12 pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate chips 

1. Preheat oven to 375*. 
2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
3. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until creamy.
4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after after each addition.
5. Gradually beat in flour mixture. 
6. Stir in chocolate chips.
7. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto a cookie stone. 
8. Bake for 9-11 minutes and cool on cookie racks. 

5 dozen cookies

Linking up with Annie and Natalie 


  1. Yum!! I'll take a dozen of those. :) And I'm glad I'm not the only one who still does break and bakes! ha
