Chocolate chip cookies

An all time favorite cookie . You must be wondering - Is there anything at all that she doesn't like? I am not answering that because right at this instant, I can't think of anything I dislike, as my mind is now full of choc choc choco chocolate chip cookies.
I love the flavor of brown sugar in cookies and this is one recipe which involves that ingredient. I remember, precisely, the very first time I had chocolate chip cookies. I was a teenager in my 8th grade. A friend, Divya, brought some of these delicious cookies to school which her mom had baked. I fell in love with them. I completed my board exams 2 years later, and we parted ways. And ever since, I have never tasted a cookie better than those that Divya brought. Till date, no cookie has beaten that taste which still remains vivid in my mind and taste buds.

Divi and I are still in touch today but unfortunately, not geographically close enough, to share those mmmm.....mmmm...cookies.

This recipe makes great chocolate chip cookies..........kinda close to those I remember from years before. Enjoyeeee!
Before the wonderful recipe, there's wonderful news. My, my!...........and here's one more award for me . I'm all smiles. Muneeba, the author of has presented me with this award. I feel that each award comes with a pair of wings too. Because , it always makes me fly high up into the sky:) It's been a great month for me and many thanks to Muneeba and to everyone who wishes well for me.

Have a great weekend guys:)

NOTE: Do not use an electric beater for this recipe. You just need to mix with a wooden spoon or ladle .

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs,beaten •
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda •
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt •
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips •
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts ( optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix sugar, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl by hand.
  • Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. The dough will be very stiff.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2-inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Let cool completely on wire rack, then remove from cookie sheet and store.

Note: Make note of the2-inch space between cookies while spooning them out onto the cookie sheet. If sufficient space is not left then, you will end up with a big bar instead of small cookies.
