I’ve had a couple people ask for the chocolate chip cookie recipe from IM Spring Break, so I just decided to publish it. I cannot take credit for writing this recipe. It is a variation of the Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that I just tinkered around with a bit. I think it’s close to the recipe my grandma used to make, but I couldn’t find her original when I actually went to make them. So, I kind of made this one up as I went along. Whatever. Hopefully you enjoyed them!
I had a great time at IM Spring Break! Mad props for the pimpin’ good time go out to those handsome bad boys of IM Broadcast. Thanks for the good time, fellas. I can’t take credit for that quote…I was momentarily possessed by Van Wilder. I heard a rumor that there is another IM Broadcast event planned in California in July and then ScarySEO in Atlantic City in the fall. More interesting conversations, great sessions, good food and open bars? Um…count me in!
I really enjoyed meeting everyone. I’m working on a post that will include some of my favorite #IMSB tweets and funny memories from the event. And another one that will actually have some substance from a few of my favorite sessions. Perhaps you should subscribe my RSS feed by clicking the giant RSS button to the right of the screen. :) Stay tuned for a review of Raven Internet Marketing Tools! I have so much work to do to get caught up. I’m sure I’m not alone…
Without further ado, here is SEOAly’s cookie recipe:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar (preferably dark)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (preferably real – not imitation)
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Ghirardelli Milk or Semi-Sweet Chips (or mix the two…)
OPTIONAL: 1 cup nuts (pecans, walnuts, peanuts, macadamias and cashews all work well – preferably pre-roasted)
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Combine flour, baking soda, nutmeg and salt in small bowl.
Beat together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl – cream well.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Gradually beat in flour mixture.
Stir in chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 8 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
About that “cool completely” craziness…that’s just part of the original recipe. I don’t condone or encourage such nonsense. Pour a cold glass of milk and enjoy! :)
Thanks for this recipe, Allyson. The Good Friday is approaching by and I think it’s the most suitable to prepare this delicious chocolate chip cookie for my family! :)
You’re quite welcome! You’ll have to come back to let me know if you make them and how they turn out. :)

Your cookies were great. Regardless of what Carolyn thinks :)
thanks again for them.
You’re quite welcome. Glad you liked them!
If Carolyn starts talking smack about my cookies, it’s going to be “Battle of the Blondes” at the next conference. ;) HAHA!
How’s your Easter’s Day? I’ve spent it with my family with six plates of chocolate chip cookies! Thanks for your marvelous recipe, most of my family and friends love it very much.
You know what, they’re begging for more…lol
I’m thrilled they like them. And you couldn’t really ask for an easier recipe. I hope you and your family had a great Easter! :)
Thanks for coming back to give me an update!

Thanks for the recipe Alysson. I’ve been making these forever and never thought to add nutmeg! I bet they’re wonderful. I’ve also had great luck with Guittard chocolate chips. They usually cost less than Nestle, and they taste much better.

Thanks, Mo. I’ll take a look at Guittard chocolate chips. I usually opt for Ghirardelli, but I’m always open to new suggestions!

My kids have been on at me for ages to make them chocolate chip cookies but I have never had a recipe, well not one that looked good enough. This recipe looks good and I can almost feel myself and the kids salivating. Glad I found this recipe early so I can get a few practice bakes in before Easter.
Thanks, Hayley! I hope you try the recipe and that you & your kids love them. I haven’t gotten any complaints! :)

This is a great recipe, I have made it many times however I have always left the nutmeg out because I don’t have it in my cupboard and they still taste fantastic
Hey, Colin. You really should try it with nutmeg sometime. It’s amazing the big difference just a little bit of nutmeg can make!
