Baking: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had a baking itch this past weekend. What’s better than a fresh baked cookie? Not much! Butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, mix-ins. Using your standard chocolate chip cookie recipe (technically it was a mesquite flour chocolate chip cookie recipe), and then assembling extra ingredients to make a variety of different combos.


Gather your ingredients.

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and the vanilla. Slowly add in the flour in batches. Then divide the dough.


My combos:

  • Chocolate chip (classic!)
  • Chocolate chip pecan
  • Goji pecan
  • Oatmeal raisin
  • Oatmeal raisin pecan

Using a cookie scoop (or a spoon), place on a baking sheet. Note: I placed them close together so I could freeze them, so I’d have my own “break and bake” – minus the breaking – in the freezer. Fresh baked cookies in a moments notice, but made from scratch? Yes, please!



The key is in a little creativity. Get baking!

    Love this idea! Variety is lovely when it comes to chocolate chip cookies. :D

  4. this is such a great recipe and i love how you made different combos. i realize that the goji berries were paired with pecans (amazing!) but i would love to have them with all of the ingredients- pecans, goji, raisins, and chocolate. but pecan and chocolate would be my first choice- everything about it is amazing!
