Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe was highlighted in one of my grandmother’s old church cookbooks. So, I figured it must be the best chocolate chip recipe in the cookbook. I made it for my mom-in-law and she said these are delicious. I will take her word for it, since I do not eat sugar.

1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup salted butter softened
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar packed
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Line a baking pan with parchment paper
In a bowl mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, & salt together. Set aside.
In another bowl cream together butter and both sugars
Add in eggs and vanilla extra. Beat until blended.
Slowly add in dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms.
Mix in chocolate chips.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, scoop dough onto baking pan.
Place in oven for 10 minutes.
Once cookies start turning light brown around edges remove.
Leave cookies in pan for 5 minutes and then remove.
These are great served warm with a cold glass of milk.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies


1 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter- softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package of Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips


Preheat oven 350F
Mix flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl
In a bowl with mixer, beat together butter and sugar until blended
Add eggs and vanilla and mix well
Slowly add in flour mixture a little at a time. Beat well and scrape down sides of bowl.
Fold in peanut butter chips.
Drop by spoonfuls or cookie dough scoop onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Do not over bake. After 9 minutes remove from oven. The cookies should be soft.
Cool slightly and serve warm for deliciously soft cookies.

*Note* I cook 2 at a time. I scoop all the cookies onto cookie sheet and stick them in the freezer for about 10 – 15 minutes until dough hardens some. I then transfer to Ziploc freezer bags and I have cookie dough on hand when I am in the mood for a sweet treat. This way I am not sitting around eating an entire plate of cookies.
