Recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies

I had posted about cookies before, I didn’t include any recipe for you to follow!! So, since I made these classic cookies (I’m big on the classic recipes lately, eh) I thought I’d post again and include the super simple directions.

This recipe is great because you can swap out / add in any kind of chips / bits / candy / etc. Fancy some M&Ms in there? Mini fudge chocolate chips? Peanut butter chips? Mini eggs…?! Wow. Ok. On to the recipe before I get too carried away…


3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tbs milk
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
+ as many chips as you want! (don’t get too carried away – aka use less than a bag)

How it’s done:

Cream the shortening and brown sugar together. Add egg, milk, and vanilla. Mix.
Mix together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then mix it into the first bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips!
Try not to eat too much of the cookie dough.
Bake at 350F for ~ 8 minutes.

TIP: If you like soft cookies, take them out of the oven when the edges get slightly brown. They cook quickly, so keep an eye.

    I love chocolate chip cookies. Is there a better cookie out there? I don’t think so! These look yummy.

      Yes! I’m glad you agree. Chocolate chip cookies are probably my favourite, second to peanut butter. I really like adding white chocolate chips and I’ve found some mini peanut butter cups that are also perfect to add to cookies.
