Cookie Recipe – World’s BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

To quote Donkey from Shrek: "These chocolate chip cookies gotta be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet!"

Something like that. Anyway, it's that special time of the year and I'm going to share my killer cookie recipe for the World's BEST Damn Chocolate Chip Cookies.  It's so easy, even a programmer can do it!  Let's get started.

You'll need:

Worlds Best Double Chocolate Cookie Ingredients

 The Delicious Ingredients

  • 3 Cups of White Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Softened Butter
  • 4 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract (go for the real stuff, don't cheap out!)
  • 1 and 1/2 Teaspoons of Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 4 Cups of "All Purpose" Flour
  • 1 1/3 Cups of Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Bag of M&M's
  • 1 Bag of Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Bag of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Bag of Pure White-Chocolate Chips
  • Optional: Nuts, Raisins, Cranberries
Melting The Butter

Melt the butter in luke warm water

Step 1:

Let the butter warm up to room temperature.  It needs to be soft before you start mixing the ingredients.  Resist the urge to "warm up" the butter in the microwave.  Instead put the butter into a large mixing bowl filled with luke-warm water for about 10 minutes.

Mix the Dry Ingredients

Step 7:

Cook for approximately 10 minutes.  Be sure to check regularly and do not let them burn.

This recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies, more than enough for the entire team.

Here's a quick tip: If you don't have enough trays to cook all the cookies at once, simply let the cookies cool for a minute or two.  Then remove and place them on a cooling rack, and rinse the empty tray in cool water to keep the next round of cookies from burning.
