Chocolate Chip Cookies

My mom is pretty much the best cook in the world.  I know a lot of people say that about their moms, but seriously, Mama Puddle is THE best!  No matter how hard I try, my food never tastes as good as hers.   Even if I follow her recipe exactly, it just doesn't taste the same.  So, in some instances I have stopped trying to recreate her recipe, and use one of my own.  Exhibit A: this cookie recipe.  I feel like I am betraying my mom by even using something else, but I know I will never be as good as her in the kitchen.  This chocolate chip cookie recipe is pretty dang close to the deliciousness that comes out of Mama Puddle's kitchen, without actually coming out of her kitchen.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as me and my husband do.  We always make a huge batch, then roll any leftover dough in wax paper, and store it in the freezer.  When we are craving something sweet (which happens quite often) we can cut off as many cookies as we want to eat and just bake those few.  It's awesome!  I looooove fresh baked cookies, and a nice refreshing glass of milk.  Mmmmm...  What's your favorite go-to dessert?


1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon real vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to:

1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

2.  In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.

3.  In another bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

4.  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients

5.  Stir in chocolate chips

6.  Spoon about golf ball sized balls of dough, 2 inches apart, on a un-greased baking sheet.

7.  Bake for 20-22 minutes until a couple of cookies start to show slight browning around the edges.

8.  Let cool on a rack for 5-10 minutes.  Eat while still warm for a party in your mouth!  :)
