Seriously the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!

I am not a great cook by any means, but I do love to bake so I thought I’d share my favorite chocolate chip cookies recipe.

When I had kids (18 years ago as I type this post) I wanted to be known for the mom that made the best chocolate chip cookies ever. I think I held the title pretty well thanks to these. At least in their eyes anyway.

What’s the key to great cookies?

There’s a secret ingredient. Well, it’s not really a secret but it’s dang awesome and makes some yummy cookies!!!

Ready for the big reveal? It’s in the picture here…

Yep. Jell-O Vanilla pudding. Crazy right?

Who would have thought??? I guess it helps them stay soft and yummy for longer than without it. I love a gooey cookie or a cake-like cookie. This makes that happen!


Need a cute apron for baking?

Before we begin, do you have an apron? You can craft yourself a cute one using our SVGs shown here.

Ok. Enough yacky-yack. Let’s get baking!


Chelly’s Yummiest Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • ¾ cup Brown Sugar (packed)

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda

Always wants to “help” mom bake.

Combine 2 ¼ cups of flour with baking soda.

Mix into wet ingredients. If too sticky add up to another ¼ cup of flour if needed.

TIP: Now eat a few chocolate chips to make sure they are good. LOL. Add the remaining to batter and stir.

Drop by rounded tablespoon onto cookie sheet. I use an airbake cookie sheet when I bake mine.

Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes and move to cooling-rack or a place to cool before sealing in a container.

They are seriously so yummy. They don’t last very long when we make a batch of these.
