Best Cookie Ever!!


I have been MIA for a little over a month....But no worries, I'm back. I've been so busy with school but I'm hoping to have more time from now on. I'm still pressed for time but I wanted to share one of my favorite cookie recipes. I know there's a lot of recipes out there for chocolate chip cookies but this is my absolute favorite. My good friend Diana shared it with me and I have to say that it was love at first bite. These cookies are thin and crispy and addictive! Due to my busyness I couldn't do my usual step by step but since I made these for my husband's boss on bosses day I wanted to share them with you.

What you need:
1 cup butter softened (2 sticks)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)





Preheat oven to 350° 

In a large bowl add softened butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar..mix with electric mixer until light and fluffy.

Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.

Next, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, mix well.

Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper 

Drop rounded teaspoonful of cookie dough onto lined cookie sheet. (12 per sheet)

Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

cool on wire rack. (makes about 4 dozens)


I made these for bosses day but I couldn't keep the kids away.....





Buen Provecho!!
