I forget how I ended up making the cookies this way but my fondest memory was when my Husband’s cousins were in town from Thousand Oaks. It was right before Christmas and I needed to whip up a dessert, fast. I got into my Christmas Recipes and made a quick batch of these Chocolate Chip Cookies. Total crowd pleaser! They were in Awe of how fast they were made.

Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies for Christmas

You will need :

  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Softened Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp Mexican Vanilla (Regular Vanilla will do)
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tsp Hot Water
  • 2 cups Milk Chocolate Chips (1 package)

*Baking Tip- For best results always read completely through a recipe before attempting to make!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cream together Butter and Sugars until smooth. Beat in the Eggs one at a time. Stir in the Vanilla. Dissolve the Baking Soda in the 2 tsp of Hot Water. Add the Baking Soda Mixture and Salt to the batter. Stir in the Flour and Chocolate Chips.

Drop Spoonfuls onto a Parchment Paper lined cookie sheet. I like to use a small Ice Cream Scooper.

Bake 9-10 minutes, Cool 2-3 minutes on cookie sheet. Then transfer to cooling rack. 


As always, if you guys have any questions or suggestions please comment below! Love, Meg
