Super Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated on March 4, 2014

How'd it do?

5 stars from 1 rating of Super Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Note to the Chef

This recipe is really easy to do with your kids. Just remember not to let them eat the raw cookie dough after the eggs have been added. When it's just that delicious combination of butter and sugar, it should be fine. Raw eggs are not healthy for yourself or your young ones!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: serves somewhere between 1.5 and 2 dozen! <3

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 extra large or 2 small eggs
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 12 oz (1 pkg) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Let's get the gooey, chocolate-y goodness started!

  1. Preheat your oven to 350* F. Blend the sugar and the butter together.
  2. Add the flour, salt and baking soda. You can let your little one mix it all up either with the electric mixer with supervision or a whisk. Either way it will leave a very big mess you'll get to clean up together!
  3. WARNING: After this step, do not eat the cookie dough! Add the vanilla extract. Mix in the eggs one at a time. Then, add the chocolate chips and optional nuts, distributing them evenly. Let that little one steal a couple chocolates or nuts here and there. Mine does.
  4. Here's the fun part! Let your little one make those balls of yumminess and place them on a buttered cookie pan or a cookie pan lined with parchment paper. Put the batch in the oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Be sure to rotate the cookie pans if you are using more than one!
  5. Let them cool and devour them! Have your little one help you clean up while the cookies are in the oven. It's a good way to help him or her learn to clean up after yourself.
