Chocolate Chip Cookies


It’s Cookie Wednesday! I know Wednesday has been dubbed “Hump Day”, but I prefer Cookie Wednesday. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the middle of the week than with a scrumptious chocolate chip cookie. The perfect reward to get you through the next couple of days. This recipe is my go to. We’ve been making them ever since I can remember and I never felt the need to look for a different cookie recipe. These are my husband’s favorite… he asks for them at least once a week and is the happiest guy when he spots a fresh batch in the cookie jar. They come out perfect every time. I like my cookies to be crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. If you prefer a slightly crunchy cookie throughout or a chewy cookie without any crispiness whatsoever, this is the recipe for you. You simply adjust the baking time and voila.

You can please everyone in your family with one recipe. No matter how they like their cookies. I think that’s my favorite part. Hassle-free and delicious.


 Oh my! I ♥ cookies!


 I leave you with a quote that couldn’t be more fitting for this recipe.







Sorry for yelling. It was Cookie Monster not me… okay, I may have gotten a little excited, too. I just can’t help it.

  1. There is a misprint with the flour. After reading the directions and it starts to add 11/4 chip sugar then treo miss, to wet, I realized that’s the flour part. In the ingredients list towards the bottom it lists a large amount b of sugar which should read flour.
    These look yummy!

    • Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, Christina. I’ve updated the recipe. Hope you’ll enjoy a delicious chocolate chip cookie soon!

  2. Hi there. New to your blog, it all looks so good. I was wondering, have you ever used butter instead of margarine? Wondering how they would turn out with the substitution?

    • Hi Julie! Yes, I have used butter and it works really well. Butter and margarine (the stick kind not the tub kind) are quite similar in fat content. When you use butter, you can taste the butter flavor a lot more and the cookies tend to be a bit more dense, but it’s not too noticeable. They’ll probably get crispier faster, so watch your first batch more closely. I would say go ahead and use butter if that’s what you prefer. I am sure your cookies will turn out great as mine have in the past whenever I used butter. Great question!
