Basic Cookie.....

*The absolute BEST cookies I have ever eaten!! It's for sure the best chocolate chip recipe, very rich and buttery and not at all flat. I don't care for the Nestle Toll House recipe because it's flat and I like kind of a puffy cookie. These fit the bill perfectly! This is my mother-in-law's recipe she used for catering; it's awesome! :) These are actually award winning cookies, try them!

1/2 lb. butter
1 & 1/2 c. sugar2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Cream butter, sugar and eggs. Add vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop by round tsp. on parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. (my oven is more like 10-12 minutes; 11 is just about right)


Chocolate chip:
3/4 c. brown sugar
3.4 c. white sugar
2 c. chocolate chips

1 & 1/2 c. brown sugar, packed no white sugar


3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
3/4 c. white sugar
2 c. flour
2 c. oatmeal


omit vanilla
1 tsp. lemon extract
1 tsp. lemon peel, grated


1 tsp. cream of tartar
Roll unbaked cookies in cinnamon and sugar


Add 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon

Let me know how you like them!! Enjoy!!
