Cookie Recipe of the Week: The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe - Use It All Year Long

If you bake nothing else this year, be sure to try the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe - a reader favorite.

It’s not the standard chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of Toll House Drop packages. And it’s hard to say what makes this recipe so popular. Maybe it’s the extra chocolate chips. Or the tweaked proportions of granulated sugar and brown sugar.

Whatever! Just make sure you try it once this year. Preferably soon. And let us know how your Best Chocolate Chip Cookies turn out. Post your pics on our Facebook page for other cookie elves!

Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Bake time: 11-12 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen large cookies

Get Organized in the New Year

I’m all about finding simple ways to spend time on what matters and eliminate the stuff I don’t need to do. Since you’re a Cookie Elf reader, I bet you feel the same.

Spring is here. And if spring cleaning isn’t on your To-Do list (or if you don’t know where to begin) … or if you feel like you’re disorganized … if you feel overwhelmed with junk …

Here’s some news that is a relief. Jane organized her home and her stuff in 7 days. She had to when she moved from Canada to Australia! When she figured out to streamline everything, it made a huge difference for her. It can for you too. Check out how you can drop your clutter and feel the relief in time for summer. More info.
