The Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe You'll Ever Need

Tuck this chocolate chip cookie recipe away and don't lose it!
They are crispy on the edges and soft and chewy in the middle.

I've debated long and hard about sharing this cookie recipe with you and if you know me you know I don't debate long and hard about most things.

I'm a quick thinker and often make decisions based on my gut reaction.  Nothing irriates me more that hem hawing back and forth over a decision, checking and rechecking figures, asking people around you what they'd do, etc.

Unfortunately for some reason THESE COOKIES were the exception.

I stumbled up a chocolate chip cookie recipe last year that added hot water to the dough.  Huh?  What? What does it do...activate the baking soda?  It just sounded odd.

Anyway, I started experimenting with adding hot water to this dough {a dough that over the years I've perfected} and guess what?  It made the best cookie.  A cookie that is exactly what I had been searching for - a tad crispy on the edges, but still left a sweet, soft and chewy middle.

This is a cookie that makes people want a second cookie.  You see them reaching for another every single time.

So very long story short....I debated on sharing this chocolate chip cookie recipe for many reasons.  Do people really need another chocolate chip cookie recipe?  Do they even care?  You can google chocolate chip cookies and come up with approximately 7 million hits.  It's not like it is a NEED.  We don't need cookies to survive {that was hard for me to type}.

Do I keep this secret dandy of a cookie recipe to myself?  I can be selfish.  It crossed my mind to have this be one of those secret recipes where I clutch the recipe card to my grave.

I can also be dramatic. 

In the end I decided to share, so here you go.

In other BIG NEWS.

If you've been stalking my Instagram feed, you've seen I've hinted at a book!  Yes, a book.  I should have a big box arriving at my doorstep soon.  Come later this month you'll be able to purchase something I actually designed!  With the help of a great graphic artist of course.

This book is a labor of love.  After many, many disappointments and not getting signed to write an actual cookbook I took it into my own hands and created something of my own.  This book is one-third meal planner, one-third shopping list organizer and one-third 50 of my most beloved recipes.

This is a book designed to take with you on-the-go.  Especially for Moms!  We are busy and if you are like me staying organized is a big part of me staying sane.  I cannot wait to share this with you.  Stay tuned as ordering information will be happening later this month.  Great for back-to-school!

As always, I love and appreciate all of my reader's support.  You are the best!

I have finally found the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I'll ever need to get through life. A bit crispy on the edges, yet soft and chewy in the middle. The best of both worlds!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar

How to cook The Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe You'll Ever Need

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a cookie sheet and set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer combine the softened butter and sugars, blending until light and creamy.
  3. Add in the eggs one at a time, along with the vanilla extract, baking soda, hot water and salt.
  4. Gently add in the flour until just combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop heaping scoops of cookie dough onto the cookie sheet, around 2 inch balls, placing 12 on the sheet.
