Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I’m telling you, these are theeeee best chocolate chip cookies. Seriously. I have made it since I was a kid and I haven’t come across a better recipe. It is consistently de-lish-ious. I think one of the reasons this recipe is so great is a suprise ingredient – ground oatmeal!
What I was told about this recipe is that someone loved this recipe so much that they purchased it from the bakery for $400 – hense $400 Chocolate Chip Cookies. This recipe makes a ton of cookies – 6 dozen-ish. I will usually cook half the batch and either freeze or refridgerate the rest for a later date.
$400 Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
- 1 pound butter
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 4 eggs
- 4 cups flour
- 5 cups oatmeal (ground to a powder)
- 2 tsp of baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 packages of chocolate chips (24 ounces)
- 8 ounce grated chocolate bar (optional) – I rarely include this because I don’t usually have a chocolate bar on hand to grate
Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla. Sift and add flour, ground oatmeal, soda and salt. Grate chocolate bar into mix (optional). Add chocolate chips.
Place golf ball size balls on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 8-12 min. or until light brown.
It’s the weekend. Make chocolate chip cookies!
