chippy cookies.

i have never met a cookie i didn't like.
scratch that.
i have never. ever. met a cookie that i didn't love.
i am practically a big ol' cookie monster. 
sprinkles. chocolate chip. peanut butter. oatmeal raisin. 
you name it. i love them. like really really love them. 

but there is one cookie that takes the cake.
one cookie that is my tried & true. go-to. always perfect cookie.
allow me to introduce you to . . .
the chippy cookie.

ta da!!!
don't you just want to eat 'em all up?!
and i pinky promise you. they are even better than they look.

so. because i love you all so much. 
and i just know how incredibly happy these cookies will make you. 
i am going to share this great recipe with you. 

oh. sugar. 
you will need your sugar & brown sugar.

to cream with your softened butter. eggs. & vanilla.
{one little secret. i always double the vanilla. such great flavor}

always allow your butter to soften for at least an hour or two.
it makes such a difference in the consistency of your dough. 

in a separate bowl. 
combine the flour. baking soda. baking powder. & salt. 
add it slowly to the creamed sugar.

then comes the fun part.
adding all the little surprises that make the chippy cookie
so amazingly yummy. and well. so very chippy.

add your chocolate chips. 
semi-sweet chips.
and the big secret... milk chocolate chips. 
the addition of the milk chocolate chips is glorious. 

then add some rolled oats. 
this gives amazing texture & flavor.
and i like to think it makes the cookies acceptable to eat for breakfast.
in fact. i highly recommend it. 

the next step it optional.
but totally worth it in my humble opinion.
add chopped walnuts. or chopped pecans. 
{if you are not a nutty person. it is completely fine to leave them out}

i always use a large ice cream scooper to make my cookie dough balls.
not only is it less messy than using your hands. 
but it also allows you to make certain that all of your cookies will be the same size. 
and in turn will all bake equally. no over baked or under baked this way.

scoop all your cookies out.
and bake them till they are golden & gooey.

mmm. mmm. mmmmmmm.
amazingly delicious with the best consistency. 
you will surely not be able to eat just one.

and the sweetie in your life will love you for the sweet treat.
my lovie just inhales these little cookies. 

so. here it is.

in your mixer cream the following:
1 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla {i add more}

in a separate bowl mix:
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the creamed dough.
mix well. 

add 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
add 8 oz milk chocolate chips
add 2 and 1/2 cups rolled oats
add 1 and 1/2 cups chopped nuts {optional}

bake at 375 for 10-13 minutes. 
& then enjoy! 

let me know if you bake these treats. i would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Hi, Kristen!
    I made the cookies. They are delicious! The only thing was I used the large ice cream scoop and they ran together and became one large cookie instead of single cookies :)
    But its ok, the taste is divine!
    Thank you for the recipe!
