Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe in a cookbook I bought years ago , I have tried many different chocolate chip cookie Recipes and this one is the winner. I have tweaked a few things but the recipe is very simple and delicious.


2 cups of all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup sugar

2/3 cup (packed) brown sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1 cup bitter sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup of butterscotch chocolate chips

1/2 cup macadamia nuts

1/2 cup Fine chopped and toasted walnuts

1/2 cup toasted and Fine chopped hazelnuts ( optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk together flour, salt and baking soda.

Working with a stand mixer, beat butter at medium speed, add sugars. Beat for 2 minutes than add eggs one at a time, 1 min apart. Beat in vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the dry ingredients in 3 portions making sure it is well incorporated. With a spatula mix in nuts and chocolate. You can use a tablespoon to scoop slightly rounded cookies onto the baking sheet. I use the smallest size ice cream scooper. Leave 2 inch space in between cookies. Bake for 12-14 min or until slightly brown edges. It will be soft inside. Let the cookies cool to room temperature before removing the cookies. This makes a lot of cookies. You can freeze half of a portions for later time. I scoop lots of rounded cookie balls onto the baking sheet, put it the freezer , once it’s frozen I Place it in a gallon ziplock bag and put it back in the freezer. You do not need to defrost the cookie dough. Just bake it at same temperature just add a min or two to your time.

AboutLily’s Cooking & Home

My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
