Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies - The Southern Lady Cooks

Chocolate Chip Cookies are a favorite at my house and these are the best ever. They melt in your mouth and you can’t stop eating them. The chocolate, nutty flavor will have you coming back for more. These chocolate chips cookies won’t last long! Children and grandchildren will love helping you make these cookies and love eating them, too!  This is one recipe you will make over and over again. You could cut the recipe in half or even double it if you want to make a lot.  These cookies would make a great gift for anyone and they keep well in an airtight container.

  1. Honestly, I was skeptical but they are hands down the best cookies I’ve ever eaten.5 stars

  2. Delicious! I had to increase the oven temp to 350 (probably my oven is off but 325 was too low).
    I will ONLY be making these cookies for the rest of my life! ♥️5 stars
