Mom’s Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Nielsen-Massey Vanillas and ExtractsWhile I enjoy cooking, I’m really passionate about baking. I love getting out all of my baking supplies and whipping up delicious cookies, cakes, pies, breads and other type’s of desserts. While buying pre-made mixes at the grocery store are convenient, my family enjoys homemade!

* Complimentary Product Received.

One of my favorite brands when it comes to pure extracts is Nielsen-Massey. I’ve been using their products for the past 7 years and they’re my go-to brand when I need pure and flavored extracts. I’ve been using their almond, orange and lemon extracts for several years and I always have a bottle of their vanilla extract in my pantry.

For this recipe feature I received a complimentary bottle of the Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract to try out for all of you. When using it in your recipes, 1 tablespoon is equal to 1 vanilla bean. All of the Nielsen-Massey extracts come in sealed bottles and you’ll find a Best By Date stamped on the label.

Mom's Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Mom’s Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 large eggs
1 bag (12 ounce) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream softened butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add vanilla extract and the eggs. Beat well. Sift dry ingredients into the cream mixture. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.

Take heaping tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Place each ball 2″ apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove cookies from oven, place on cooling rack. Once they’re cool, store cookies in an airtight canister. Makes approximately 3 1/2 dozen of cookies.

One of the reasons that I think these cookies turn out so chewy, flavorful and delicious is because I used the Nielsen-Massey Organic Fairtrade Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract. The vanilla is very rich and flavorful. You don’t need to go over-board when using it at all. If you use those imitation vanilla “cheapo” extracts, you’re really doing a disservice to your baking projects. Always…and I mean ALWAYS use a high-quality and pure vanilla extract!!!

Head on over to Nielsen-Massey Vanillas and check out all of their different type’s of vanilla extracts and flavor extracts that they have to offer. While you’re there, take a look through their recipe section for some great ideas!

    I’d love to try the Madagascar Bourbon
    Vanilla Beans. Never used whole beans.

  2. I would love to try the Pure Vanilla Bean Paste. I have not had paste before but it sounds like a wonderful way to get the vanilla bean flavor. We use a lot of vanilla extract in my house.

  3. Nothing is ever as good as fancy vanilla!!!

    Madagascar Burbon I bet would be amazing as well. I am a vanilla extract crazy lady lol. Even my 8 year old knows well cut out the unimportant things on our grocery list so we can afford to buy real vanilla for baking, no matter what, I can NOT use the imitation stuff!!

  14. I’d like to try the Rose Water. I’m not sure what I’d use it in, but it sounds exotic and inspiring. A whole new direction for my baking and cooking.

  15. Another Nielsen-Massey product I would love to try is the Pure Vanilla Bean Paste. I’m curious about how the paste differs from extract and if it would be better in applications like flavoring jams.

  16. I really want to try the rose water. It’s really good for the skin and aging.
