The-Take-Out-Of-The-Oven-Before-Fully-Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies:


  • 1 lb. softened butter (unsalted..but salted will work too )
  • 2 cups brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 2 TSBP vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 cups flour
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1.5  tsp baking soda
  • 4 cups chocolate chips (or however much your heart desires)
  • chopped walnuts (optional)


  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • cream together butter & brown sugar with electric mixer 
  • mix in sugar, vanilla extract, & eggs till fully combined
  • mix in salt, baking soda, &  flour (one cup at a time…i recommend measuring out the flour before adding, or else it’s super easy to lose track)
  • mix in chocolate chips and walnuts by hand
  • spoon out TBSP size scoops onto silpat covered cookie sheets. they will spread when baking. so leave room for them to expand.
  • bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, depending on oven (they won’t look done when you take them out. but they’ll set & firm up after about 5-10 minutes outside the oven. the more you bake them, the less moist and the more crisp they will become. they’ll still taste great this way, if you prefer this)
  • enjoy!

the perfect homemade gift
