Chocolate Chip Cookies


This is the classic from Fanny Farmer and I recommend them for all occasions.  I've won several bets for which the stakes were "chocolate chip cookies for life."  They should be put on the cookie sheet in a flattened shape rather than in a mound.  I make them small so that the yield is about thirty 2 1/2" cookies to a batch.  [Wheeler and Kate get about 17 3 1/2 cookies.]


  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
  • 3/8 cup white sugar
  • 3/8 cup dark brown sugar


  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda in 1 Tbsp hot water


  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (generous) flour


  • 2/3 cup broken walnut pieces
  • 6 oz chocolate chips (1 cup by volume)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars until smooth.  Ad the liquid ingredients and mix.  Add the salt and flour and mix to a smooth brown paste.  Add the walnuts and chocolate chips and mix thoroughly.
  3. Spoon mounds onto a cookie sheet and flatten them [not necessary?].  Bake for 12 minutes.
