Servings: 60 cookies


  • Stand Mixer
  • Oven


  • 2.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup softened butter (I find that salt-free or half-salt tastes better)
  • .5 cup sugar
  • .5 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (the recipe calls for Nestle, I use President’s Choice: bigger chips)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (I don’t add these)


  • Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl.
  • Beat butter, sugars and vanilla in large mixer bowl.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips (and nuts).
  • Drop onto ungreased baking sheets. (I used Silpat; it makes all baking a complete joy.)
  • Bake in preheated 375F oven for 9 to 11 minutes, or until golden brown.
