Mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ever since I was a little girl, my mom has used this “Mrs. Fields: I Love Chocolate! Cookbook” for their chocolate chip recipe. I do not think I have ever seen her turn to any other recipe and use them. My favorite thing to come home from school was the smell of her fantastic homemade cookies. It is a wonderful memory to think about and one I hope to pass on to my own children one day. I hope you enjoy my favorite cookies in the world as much I appreciated them growing up.


  • 2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup (or 2 sticks) Unsalted Butter [I used Country Crock Butter Spread, which isn’t really butter but whatever)
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar (dark is preferred but using the light version will be ok)
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 12 ounces (or about 2 cups) Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips


  • 1 cup of your choice of Nuts- I used walnuts for half the batter (1/2 cup chopped Walnuts)

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees.

Step 2: In a medium bowl whisk flour, baking soda and salt.

Step 3: In a separate large bowl, cream the softened butter and sugars with an electric butter on low.

Step 4: Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.

*Haha, smiley face not required

Step 5: Add the flour and mix on low-speed.

Step 6: Mix in the chocolate chips.

Step 7: Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 8: At this point, I separated the batter into to bowls. One for regular chocolate chip cookies and the second to add the walnuts.

Step 9: Drop the dough with a  tablespoon on to the cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.

Step 10: Bake 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 11: Transfer onto a wire rack to cool.


Step 12: Eat and Enjoy.
