Melissa's Chocolate Chip Cookies

When we visited our friends Melissa, Gary, and new baby Addie last week, we had the most delicious chocolate chip cookies.  The Boatwright men devoured them during our visit.

Gary tells us that Melissa developed the recipe on her own, trying out a lot of varieties, trying to find one that rivals a Pillsbury cookie.  Mission accomplished.

Melissa and baby Addie

I asked Melissa if I could have her recipe to make cookies for a Christmas Cookie Exchange party we are heading to tonight.  Each family takes 3 dozen homemade cookies to share.

The cookies are really delicious and I made 4 dozen so my family could enjoy some as well.

You mix the wet ingredients.  Then mix it in with the dry ingredients.

I placed the cookie dough on Silpats on top of cookie sheets.

Mmmmm.  Sooo good right out of the oven!

Platter fixed up for tonight's party.

And a few extras for my cookie monsters.

Melissa shared variations on this recipe that I wanted to share as well!

Sugar Cookies - use all white sugar instead of brown+white
Oatmeal Cookies - use 1 1/4 c flour and 3 c instant oats

Thank You Melissa!

  1. We love chocolate chip cookies. I have a Cooks Illustrated one that is my standard, but I'll definitely try Melissa's version.


Welcome to my table! So glad you dropped by. I love hearing from you.
