Mom’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

There’s just something I love about the simplicity of a chocolate chip cookie. They’re such a classic treat but it’s always fun to mix it up for different occasions. You can use colored chocolate chips for each holiday, add peanuts or even caramel and pretzel pieces for something unexpected. My mom has been using this chocolate chip cookie recipe for as long as I can remember and it always turns out great. I hope you and your family enjoy.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Lay out your ingredients and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cream softened butter and sugars together until smooth.

Beat one egg into the mixture at a time and add vanilla extract.

Mix together the water and baking soda and stir in.

Stir in the flour, salt and chocolate chips.

Roll a spoonful of dough into a ball and place evenly on the cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with a glass of milk and enjoy!
