Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

CONFESSION –

I can cook a mean dinner, but give me some flour and measuring spoons and I get suuuuper nervous! In all honesty, not too many things that I bake turn out decent, and too many kitchen fails have made me lose some baking confidence. So you’ll have to believe me when I say these chocolate chip cookies are seriously the BEST. Because if I can make these and have family members ooh and ahh over them, you can too- I promise.

the best delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe ever

I got the recipe from my cousin who received it over 20 years ago from a missionary serving in her home town when she was a teenager. I think she said it was a twist on an old Betty Crocker cookie recipe that she had made so many times over the years she could make these in her sleep.

Anyone who bakes cookies in their sleep is welcome to stay the night at my house any day of the week! Just sayin’……
