Memaw’s Chocolate Chip Cookies should look like this when you remove them from the oven; a little crispy around the edges, and appear slightly doughy in the center.  As a result, you’ll get the soft and gooey centers along with chewy edges!  YUM!

Give them a a few minutes to rest on the baking pan before removing them to either  a cookie rack or, like I do, to a counter covered with wax or parchment paper and let them finish cooling there!

¾ C – Sugar
1 tsp. – Vanilla
2 Large Eggs
1 pkg. (12 oz.) Chocolate chips


  1. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in small bowl, set aside.
  2. In separate mixing bowl, add the butter, sugars, and vanilla and cream together.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each.
  4. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix well.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips and place in a covered container and store in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  6. To bake, preheat oven to 425’F. Drop cookie dough by ice cream scoop on un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and place cookie sheet on rack to cool for 2 minutes (for cookies to set up). Remove from cookie sheet onto wax paper to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container. Makes 3-5 dozen cookies.


Prep time includes chilling time in the refrigerator. I usually try to make the dough a day in advance to allow for more chilling time.
