There are many things my mom is known for. She’s an incredible hostess, the best listener and she’s one of the best cooks out there.
This old fashioned cookie recipe is simply the best.
What do I mean by this? Well, she’s a grill master and has a way of grilling steak to perfection. She’s also the chocolate chip cookie queen. We’re talking commonly requested recipe card at bridal showers and THE dessert of choice for birthdays — this old fashioned cookie recipe is simply the best.
Give it a try.
MARSOLAIS CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
2 sticks butter, softened
¾ cup white sugar
¾ brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 to 2 ½ cups flour
1 cup oats
1 ½ to 2 cups chocolate chips
This recipe has been tested, modified, and played around with throughout the years and is easy to switch up if you’re feeling a different type of cookie. For example, if you want more chewy cookies, don’t cream your butter completely and allow small ‘chunks’ of butter to remain. You can ‘plop’ the dough onto the cookie sheet, or roll into balls, depending on the look you would like.
