Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


3 C white flour
1 C (2 sticks) margarine, softened
3/4 C sugar
1/2 C light brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips (it's worth it to spend a little extra $$$ for better chocolate)
*walnuts optional (I really like nuts in my cookies but many people do not.)

Mix together all ingredients except flour and chocolate chips (and walnuts). I like to add everything in this order: margarine, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, baking soda, vanilla. Mix well.

Add flour (I do it 1/2 C at a time) and mix well.

Stir in chocolate chips (and walnuts).

Drop by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees on middle rack until tops of cookies are a light golden brown.

*A yummy variation of this recipe is to make the dough as usual but replace the chocolate chips with butterscotch chips and add coconut flakes instead of walnuts.*

Pairs Well With


This is the chocolate chip cookie recipe I have been trying to perfect over years.

Mmmmm I just love choc chip cookies and this one sounds delicious... But how much walnuts do you add? I love nuts in my cookies as well :)
