{this is what happens when you are a photographer and your kids have had it with you taking pictures of them ... you start to take pictures of your food. beware: it's a slippery slope. what's next? pictures of your shoes from your own vantage point?? never say never.}

Maybe I'm a little obsessed with trying new recipes.
And maybe I'm particularly obsessed with finding
the very best chocolate chip recipe ever.
And, maybe, just maybe, this is in my top five so far.

Chocolate Chip Cookies That Will Make You Swoon

1 c butter (softened ever so slightly)
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
2 eggs (room temp)
1 tsp pure vanilla
3 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
Semi-sweet choc chips, to taste.
I add walnuts or pecans to taste, too.

Cream butter, brown sugar and white sugar together in a mixer.
One at a time, add the room temp eggs. Beat just until creamy. Add vanilla.

In another bowl, mix dry ingredients. When done, slowly add to creamed mixture. When completely combined, fold in chocolate chips and/or nuts.
Bake at 350 for 8 minutes & cool on wire rack.

{p.s. it's very important to take them out of the oven when they have
the very slightest golden brown tinge on the edges}

{p.p.s. i want to apologize for not acknowledging the source ... i have tried so many floating around the web and i haven't kept track like a good girl should}

  1. I too am a chocolate chip cookie freak and am always trying to find the BEST one!! These are looking pretty good and I just might have to give them a try. :) Oh...and I too have taken photos of food because my 5yo has had it. Haven't done shoes.....yet! LOL!

  2. Didn't know that, Brenda! We will have to do a little recipe-exchanging action!! Yeah, I get desperate enough to take pictures of all sorts of things, shoes included. :-)
