I've tried to "formulate" a basic batter for cookies that could suit most chip cookies like chocolate chip or butterscotch or white chocolate chip. This one is a basic recipe for me and I hope you can use it for your cookies too.

  • 3/4 c
    brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3/4 c
    sugar
  • 1 tsp

  • 2 large
    eggs

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies or basic cookie batter

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375*

    If you do not have an oven thermometer watch cookies closely when using real butter, so that the bottom doesn't burn.
  2. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, add eggs until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Add salt and soda to the butter mixture, slowly add flour. Yes I know this seems unconventional, but I've found that it does seem to work better. Then add your chips and nuts by hand. Use a teaspoon to drop to the cookie sheet. I use parchment paper to prevent burning as much as possible. Enjoy!
