Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand!

For the past four years every Saturday I have been baking cookies. I have gone through countless church cookbooks, recipes and Internet recipes to find the best cookie.

I have tried them all: Chocolate chip with oatmeal; chocolate chip with peanut butter; chocolate chip with Nutella etc...

Finally I have come up with the best recipe, that my guests at Ogunquit Beach Inn enjoy! It is the right consistency of chewiness and crispness.

3/4 cup of white sugar
1 Cup of brown sugar
2 sticks of butter at room temp ( unsalted is best)
1 heaping tablespoon of vanilla
2 large eggs beaten
3 cups of all-purpose flour
3/4 baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Blend sugars and butter together in a large bowl.
Add vanilla and eggs and mix.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and gradually add to batter.
Place cookie batter in little balls on non-stick cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.
Let cool on metal rack and enjoy!

  1. I made a half-size batch of them and they were delicious! Next time I will add some nuts to the mixture.

  2. This really looks delicious. I'm definitely craving for a plate of that right now. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. This is definitely a must do recipe this weekend since I got my Food Safety Training.
