If you do not have Grandma’s famous Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, then we are here to help!

Originally found on Northern Cheap$kate

– 2 cups of chocolate chips (12 oz. bag)
– 2 eggs
– 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
– 1 cup vegetable oil
– 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
– 3/4 cup granulated sugar
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1 teaspoon water
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 375°F.

Step 2: Combine flour, baking soda, and salt into a mixing bowl. (A bowl with a pouring edge makes step 4 easier!)

Step 3: Using a stand mixer or hand mixer beat together the oil, brown sugar, vanilla, water, and granulated sugar. One at a time, add the eggs to the mixture. Make sure the first egg is well beaten before adding the second. Begin step 4 when you have a creamy mixture.

Step 4: Slowly add the mixture of flour into the wet ingrediencts and beat until fully mixed.

Step 5: Using a spatula, fold the chocolate chips into the mixture.
Step 6: Put the dough into the fridge for 10-15 minutes or until it is no longer sticky.

Step 7: Roll dough in your hands and drop onto a cookie sheet. A small ice cream scoop (1″) works for the perfect size cookie. Recipe makes about 24 cookies, enough for Santa and little helpers.

Step 8: Bake for 10 minutes at 375°F. (A Kuhn Rikon silicone baking sheet makes these cookies perfect!) Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
Step 9: Pour a glass of milk and enjoy these cookies!  Be sure to save a couple for Christmas Eve!
