Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (soft)
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 chocolate chips


1_ Using a beater, cream together sugars, softened butter, and oil. Note: when measuring brown sugar pack it together to measure the cup.

2_ Add eggs and beat.

3_ Add dry ingredients and vanilla extract and beat.

4_ Mix in as many chocolate chips as desired. May also substitute with white chips or butterscotch chips. M&Ms didn't work well for me, however.

5_ If dough if it sticks to your hands too much.

6_ Form 1.5 inch balls of cookie dough and flatten evenly (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness). Place 1-2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

7_ Bake at 350 Fahrenheit for 5-11 minutes or until just barely golden brown on the edges. (The rest of the cookie may appear doughy).

8_ When done, allow to cool on the cookie sheet.
