This recipe was copied from a *children's cookbook that I picked up from the library about 10 or 12 years ago. I wish I could remember the title of the book to give credit where credit is due. The recipe is simple and very easy to make. No need to drag out heavy equipment, just a simple wooden spoon is all that's needed to mix these babies up. In fact, I think it's key to the yummyness of these cookies. Just make sure your butter is softened and you're good to go.
Lindsey said she recently tried one of the highest rated recipes for chocolate chip cookies from **Allrecipes.com and it still did not measure up to these. Lindsey and I have been hard-pressed to find a chocolate chip cookie recipe better than this one. I certainly would encourage you to give them a try.
makes about 24 cookies
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 large egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt (use a little less if your butter is salted)
1/2 cup nuts (I opt out on the nuts)
*If anyone knows the title of the cookbook this recipe comes from let me know in the comments section. I would be incredibly happy to update this post with that information.
**Allrecipes.com is an excellent resource for great recipes.
