The Best + Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe You'll Ever Need | Kalamazoo MI Family Photographer

Atleast a couple times a month the boys beg me to make homemade chocolate chip cookies. Thankfully, we have the best chocolate chip cookie recipe around. I don't even bother looking on Pinterest or trying anything new, because these. are. amazing

Our 3 year old is our baker. If we agree to make cookies, it never fails, he's the first one in the kitchen. He grabs the cookie sheet, spatula and stool and waits not-so-patiently until we arrive.

I completely forgot to take a photo of the finished product, but I'll add one in here next time we bake! Until then, here's the recipe:

(This is a double batch - bake some & freeze some!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

3/4 C Sugar
1 C Brown Sugar (packed)
1 C Butter (2 sticks, soft but not completely melted)
1 Tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
3 C Flour
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 tsp Salt
3 C Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 C Chopped Walnuts (optional)

Mix all ingredients (we love our KitchenAid mixer!) and form small balls of dough on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. 

Now just pour yourself a glass of milk and enjoy! :)
