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.

IMG_0530.JPGMama 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 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!
