Cameron's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Kristin and I looked for years for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. After many, many recipes, this is the result. Lots of our friends have made this their favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe too. -Sarah

3 cups flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
chocolate chips
  • I will give the directions the way that Kristin makes them (hers always turn out awesome!)
  • Take the cold sticks of butter and microwave just to take the chill off them, do not melt them!
  • Beat butter till fluffy, add sugar and brown sugar (not packed), beat until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla, continue beating until well combined.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt (this step is important, I was having problems with my cookies being too thin). The way that Kristin measures her flour is by scooping the measuring cup into the flour canister and leveling it off. I was lightly spooning flour into cups.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop balls onto cookie sheet and slightly flatten balls before baking. Bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
  • We have experimented with different add ins, our favorite's are chopped pecans, 1/2 cup peanut butter, or M&M's. Also for some reason the bigger the cookies are the better turn out.
