Is there anything better than chocolate chip cookies and a glass of cold milk?
Maybe more chocolate chip cookies and a second glass of cold milk?
Out of all the cookies for Christmas and any other time of the year, I think chocolate chip are my very favorite!
So when my good friend Dee Simmons called and asked if I would like a plate of her famous Mama Dee’s Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies, I didn’t waste any time going by her house to pick them up for dessert tonight.
Mama Dee’s cookies are so good…just the right amount of melt-in-your mouth chocolate chips…and I love the way she shapes them into perfect round balls, somehow they taste better that way. I think part of the secret is how she bakes them.
I’ve always known Mama Dee Simmons is a hard worker. She has a thriving UltimateLiving.com business, among lots of other entrepreneurial and charity work. I didn’t know that when she was growing up in a very modest household, Dee sold her cookies to make extra money. I love that, and respect it.
Here’s Mama Dee’s recipe…and I have a challenge for you. Do you have a recipe for a chocolate chip cookie that you think is the very best you have ever had? Please tell me in the comments below.
I challenge you to make me a better chocolate chip cookie than Mama Dee’s Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Mama Dee’s Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies
Large Bag of Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (24-oz pkg)
2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) of soft butter.
¾ cup packed light brown sugar
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons real vanilla
2 large eggs
4 cups of Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
2 cups of chopped pecans.
Preheat oven to 375
Swift together flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
Mix soft butter with granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in large bowl. Add beaten eggs.
Gradually stir in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
I place a sheet of parchment paper on two cookie sheets. Bake two at a time.
Since I like my cookies brown I bake about 12-15 minutes.
Cool and enjoy. Can’t eat just one!
Jane, honestly, I love them right out of oven with a glass of cold milk. Yummy!
This is precisely the Toll House Recipe that is on the Nestles Semi Sweet Morsel package.
In your defense, I have been preparing them from this recipe for years and women(mostly) come up to me and rave about how wonderful mine are and wonder why mine taste so much better than theirs.
I mostly checked this recipe out, to see what you might add or do differently than the Nestles recipe, but it is the same.
Lol Gordon, thanks! I think it’s the way Momma Dee shapes and bakes hers that makes them so good! Happy holidays, Jane
The difference in my cookies and the Nestle Toll House on the back of package.
I use 2 teaspoons vanilla, 4 cups of chocolate chips and 2 cups of pecans.
AHA!! I knew there was something. I love me some vanilla:)
