Yep! Chocolate Chip Cookies, but not just any ordinary Choc Chip Cookies! This recipe I only use ONCE a year, Christmas time. My Sister-in-Law says this is her favorite cookie and looks forward to them every year.

Today is Day 2 of LifeAmorFamily’s 12 Days of Baking and Candy Making. I’ve been working hard to make these recipes happen for you all. I really hope you enjoy them. To see Day 1’s Milk Chocolate Almond Clusters, click here!

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.

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
