Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vanilla Chocolate Chip CookiesWhat can I say about these cookies? They’re practically foolproof and super soft! Too easy, the recipe makes about a million! Haha πŸ™‚

Seriously, this is the recipe that first made me feel like a baker. In college I would make these cookies, wrap them up spectacularly, and give them out as christmas presents. Making cookies is the foundation stone upon which all baking is built. I think that makes chocolate chip cookies the steel rods that are pile-driven into bedrock.

This recipe is extra special. I am a fan of a chewy cookie – probably the reason I eat so much Subway! It contains vanilla to make it smooth, chopped nuts for texture and chocolate because it’s essential. Try them out. I’m sure you’ll love them! As a recipe they’re super giving. You can be egg free and dairy free by making minor alterations. Completely kid friendly.

  • 2 1/2 cups self raising flour
