Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was recently asked by a colleague to suggest a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe, here's my favorite of the 'simple' recipes I've tried.


2/3 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp milk
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips.

Whip the butter and sugar together, then add in the eggs and beat well. In a second bowl combine the dry ingredients. Make sure to thoroughly mix together the flour, baking soda and powder.

Add the dry ingredients, milk, and vanilla into the butter , sugar, and egg mixture. Beat until dough is consistent.

You may now preheat your oven to 375F. Drop teaspoon full amounts of dough onto greased or lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. This recipe should yield between three to four dozen cookies.

Hope you enjoyed this recipe!
