My Mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookies


This chocolate chip cookie recipe makes flat and crispy cookies.  This was one of my Mom’s favorite recipes.  She loved eating these type of cookies, and I must agree – they are pretty darn good, even in my hands.

You can use either margarine or butter for this recipe, or mix the two (half and half).  Experiment to see which version you like better – and then let me know.



1 cup cooking oil

1 cup margarine or butter (or a mix)

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 Tbsp milk

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tartar

3 1/2 cup flour

3 cups chocolate chips

1 cup nuts (optional but good)

1 cup nuts

1 tsp vanilla extract



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Cream margarine/butter, oil, vanilla and sugar

Add the egg and then the milk

Add all dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix, then add it to the other ingredients, but only mix until smooth.  Don’t ove mix.

Add chocolate chips and nuts

Using a teaspoon, drop your cookies on your baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.

  1. Those are the kind I love flat & crispy. I like the edges to burn a tiny bit. Yum!

  2. They look delish Lisa! I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies using whole wheat pastry flour and spelt flour to be healthier. Also ground flax seeds. They were fine but yours look much more delicious!!

  3. I don’t do to much baking because when I do I do too much eating! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite by far. Maybe I will give this recipe a try. They look really good and my kids are in need of a structured activity right about now. What kind of nuts do you use?

    • I use walnuts (my fav). I could just eat about a ton of those things. I have been craving some too. I might just steal a bit and make a few cookies with walnuts. They are so delish.

      If you try them, let me know what you think.
