My favourite chocolate chip cookies!

Yes, I know everyone has the best recipe. Everyone has a theory, too – to chill or not to chill. That is the question. Oh, and what about thin and crispy or thick and chewy? Well, to each their own. That’s my motto about lots of things. But I do encourage you to try these!




  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) butter or margarine
  • 1 cup (250 mL) packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups (550 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) salt
  • 1 package (270 g) CHIPITS® Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chopped nuts (optional)
1. Heat oven to 375°F (190°C). 

2. In large bowl, beat butter, sugars until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla until creamy. 

3. In medium bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture. Stir in milk chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. 

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. 

These take but a moment to whip up. Graham was getting the pizza for our Pizza & Euchre night with my old roommates. We’d just come back from squeezing in a run, after I was seriously late getting away from my desk at work. Oh, and I’d also just set up our new wooden patio table and chairs from Ikea. And I was half changed – into jeans, but still in my sportsbra, Garmin HRM strap and sweaty top. We got it all done and had a fantastic games night – 3 cookies indeed!
