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.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies or basic cookie batter


  • 1Preheat 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.
  • 2Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, add eggs until thoroughly mixed.
  • 3Add 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!
