Classic recipe! One trick to prevent the cookies from being crisp and flat, mix in a small package of instant vanilla pudding to the batter before adding the chips.

HERE'S HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT COOKIE: First off, make sure the eggs and butter are at room temperature before using. Big difference. Second, add 2 heaping tsp. of vanilla. Third, add 1.5 tsp. of cinnamon. Add the nuts or don't. HAND MIX EVERYTHING AT THE VERY END. Seems like the majority of the time, these recipes call for too much mixing! If you've taken forever to do this, set it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Bake for the 9 minutes. Put the remaining dough back in fridge. Very easy and you will have everyone in your house loving you. :)



This has been the recipe my family has used since I was little, however when it came time for me to make them they always came out flat. By suggestion of my sister in law what I did was used Baking Poweder instead of Baking soda, split the butter with 1/2 crisco butter and 1/2 sweet unsalted butter, doubled the vanilla, and used just 1/4 cup of white sugar and made the rest light brown sugar. I also beat the butters and sugars with my electric beater and slowly added the eggs. Oh and last but not least a packet of instant vanilla pudding just before I added the chips. End result, awesome cookies that were so thick I had to pre-flatten them before going in the oven!! Really thick and chewy.... P.S. I decreased the amount of sugar because with the instant pudding if you don't decrease the sugar it will be a little too sweet.
