My quest for perfection has finally come to a close!

If you are a long time reader of mine, you will know that I will go to great lengths to have a taste of the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Since then, I have made it my life's mission to bake the BEST chocolate chip cookie in all the land! I've tried every recipe under the moon and even though they have all been tasty, they were not perfect.

Teacher appreciation week snuck up on us this year.  Jaden and I decided to give her teacher a cookie mix in a jar. Thanks to Pinterest, I found this printable.  We followed the directions for this jar recipe.



After Jaden got the jar filled, Taylor and I made a batch of finished cookies to go with the gift. Jaden's teacher is pretty much a god in Taylor's eyes :-)  She adores him!


You guys, these turned out PERFECT! They are exactly the type of cookie I have been trying to make for like MY WHOLE LIFE.

We wrapped them up all pretty in some parchment paper and tucked them into a bag with the mix!

Here's my soon-to-be secret family recipe:

The World's BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 c flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
¾ c brown sugar
¾ c sugar
chocolate chips
1 c butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Beat butter, vanilla, and eggs together until smooth.
3. Add dry ingredients.
4. Drop onto cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
6. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to cooling rack.


Want to try the cookies but don't want to bake them??  Comment below (why do I get like no comments ever anymore??) and I'll randomly pick a winner to get some cookies made by me and my two cuties!

Now you've made me crave chocolate chip cookies and I'm supposed to be on a cleanse! I guess that's what cheat days are for.

Hey, it looks like I found your blog and just the right time! LOL. They look delicious and your kiddos are adorable. I need to stay away from cookies, though :) I cannot control myself!
