Betty Crocker to the rescue!

betty crocker's ultimate chocolate chip cookies

Remember my lazy day? It felt so good eating pizza! I agree with you guys, it’s okay to have a day off and just indulge in guilty foods!

Originally, I was planning on making one of those easy-peasy 5-minute mug microwave concoctions since I bought a quart of milk and a bag of chocolate chips at the grocery store, AND…well, I’m a girl and I have major chocolate cravings at least once a month (you know what I’m talking about ladies :). Plus, I’ve been seeing people pinning and repinning these recipes on Pinterest a lot lately!

Sigh…I don’t know what happened, but I just had to make chocolate chip cookies. After stuffing my face with pizza, I spent half an hour googling recipes for chocolate chip cookies. I googled A LOT searching for the ultimate perfect chocolate chip cookie. My searches ranged from the Neiman Marcus cookie, NY Times chocolate chip cookie, cookies from All Recipes, and of course Food Network.

Half an hour later + a whole lot of frustration, I settled on a chocolate chip recipe from BETTY CROCKER! Yes, Betty Crocker haha! Don’t judge me!! I already got the head-turn from my boyfriend. He laughed at me for wasting half an hour on the internet for a Betty Crocker recipe. Lol, I’m a very indecivisive person okay :)

These Betty Crocker cookies were soooo goooood!! Nice crisp edges and so soft and chewy in the middle…hmmm perfection! These were the BEST batch of chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made, just ask my boyfriend! He woke up from a pizza induced coma to a nice big plate of warm chocolate chip cookies. What a lucky boyfriend, right? So do I get an award for being an awesome girlfriend? Hehe :)

cookies cooling, yum yum yum! :)

It feels like such a crime writing Betty Crocker’s recipe, so please check it out here for Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies. But if you’re lazy like me, check it out below!

Betty Crocker’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies (courtesy of Betty Crocker)

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of coarsely chopped nuts (omitted)
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Mix sugars, butter, and egg in a large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (optional).
  3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly then transfer onto a wire rack to continue cooling.
KITCHEN TIP If your dough is a little dry, add one to two spoonfuls of milk (at a time) to help moisten the dough. Try not to add too much milk otherwise, you’ll have to adjust your ingredients.

ps. sorry for the blurry cell phone pics…I guess my phone got all dusty from the baking :)

  1. Believe it or not Betty Crocker has some really good recipes! I have always used her chocolate chip recipe!

    BTW – have Peppered bacon on order and should be posting the rollups shortly! Have a great day Kat!

  2. I baked Betty Crocker’s snickerdoodles for a Christmas event a few years ago, and they have been the only cookie specifically requested (actually more like demanded) every year since. I have a Betty Crocker cookbook from the 60s that is broken into pieces and held together with rubber bands. I wouldn’t give it up for any other cookbook. :)

  3. Wonderful, i’ll have to try the Betty Crocker Recipe! Isn’t it hilarious how much time we spend googling recipes – !!! I always end up finding one or two and then combining ideas !!
