Rumor has it that this is Mrs. Field's recipe. Rumors always abound, but I would not at all be surprised if this was it. These are the best of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever eaten or made.

How to Make THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream butter and sugars. Add vanilla, eggs, chips and nuts. In a separate bowl, blend thoroughly the flour, salt and baking soda with a sifter or a whisk. Add dry ingedients to the wet ingredients. If you have a Kitchenaid, use it. This is alot of dough. Mix just until all is combined. Do not over mix as it makes the cookies tough.
  • 2Scoop out balls of dough using an ice cream scoop. These cookies are supposed to be BIG. However, I have used mini chips or mini m&ms, etc. and made them small with no problem.
  • 3Make your balls of dough uniform in size and spaced at least 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. I use light colored, air-cushioned cookie sheets. If you don't have access to them, I suggest that you line the darker sheets with foil-the shiny side down, and dull side up.
  • 4Bake medium to large sized cookies for 10 minutes (or 12 minutes if they are absolutely huge). Cool cookies on sheet for 5 minutes before removing to cool on a cooling rack. Store in a plastic bag or air tight container.
  • 5This dough is very versatile. I've useed all kinds of combinations of chips,nuts,coconut, m&ms and have used chopped up candy bars as well. They all work out wonderfully!
