Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies?! My entire family has a sweet tooth, so I am constantly making some type of dessert. If you come to my house, it is unlikely that you would not be able to find something sweet. Which, isn’t the best thing if you want to lose a few pounds. My entire family has a nice high metabolism, except me!
Anyways… this isn’t bout my wanting to lose weight or dieting. That’s not a fun topic. So chocolate chip cookies!! I can’t take any credit for these delicious cookies except the fact that I baked them and didn’t burn them. Which in my house poses a challenge when your oven is on the fritz. Always check on your cookies, never assume your oven cooks the same as someone else’s. This is a quick and easy recipe. My kids are always eager to help with the cookie making. And right now, more than ever, they appreciate having something to do.
A little shout out to Mrs. Joanna Gains and Magnolia Table cookbook for these delicious cookies. We usually make a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie, which is bomb.com but these are a close second. I like that she, (Joanna) adapted a family recipe to use a little less butter and she only uses brown sugar. I use both brown and white sugar, in my cookies. And I have to say, these cookies have a great flavor just using the brown sugar.
If you haven’t got yourself the Magnolia Table cookbook, I highly recommend it. So many delicious and pretty easy recipes.
Let me know if you make these and how you like them. And, I am always looking for new recipes, if you have one you’d like to share, I’d love to have it!!
From my family to yours, enjoy,
Still making these cookies and are still a family favorite! Well, the daughters still prefer the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies. But boys in this house think these are the best things.
I have made a few adjustments to the recipe. Instead of 2 cups of brown sugar, I do 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup granulated sugar. I also change up the chocolate. Between milk, dark and white, but then also have added a chopped up SKOR candy bar. YUM!!
