My entire life I thought, I know I’ll make it as an adult, wife, mom, homemaker.. whatever, if I can make the yummiest chocolate chip cookies. The kind that leaves everyone begging for more. I wanted to have that cookie recipe that was unique and one I could pass on to my kids. (I know, I was thinking way ahead here)

Once I got married and started dental hygiene school, I started trying friends and families cookies. I’d even snag the recipe and would attempt to make their cookie. Needless to say, those recipes always turned out dry, flakey and gross. I didn’t get it, I followed the recipe exactly, I had thought. I would make cookies and have my close friends and husband rate them. A close 6 was as good as I got. It soon became the joke when my hygiene friends would come over to study, I’d make a new plate of cookies and pass them out. They would joke and say they were full or that they didn’t have empty hands to take a plateful home. We would all laugh because they were never yummy.

After about 31 failed cookie recipe attempts later, I stopped making cookies all together.

I took a break. I didn’t know why I seriously sucked at making cookies. I stopped for awhile until my cousin taught me something I never knew about baking. This one small tip really helped. I learned to add the wet ingredients first, then add the dry ingredients to mix all together. How did I never know this?
After learning that little tip, and a few other little secrets during all my failed attempts, I created my very own chocolate chip cookie recipe that will blow your mind and make everyone beg for more! I seriously promise.
Cliche or not, but failing so many times and even quitting helped me find MY cookie. The cookie I’ll make for family functions, good neighbors, and yes, even my grandkids one day.

I hope you love this recipe as much as we do in our home. Just call me the cookie master. 🍪😜

Britts Cookie Recipe:

-2 C Sugar
-1/2 C Brown Sugar
-2 Sticks Butter (browned*)
(Browning butter is the key to these delicious cookies. Browning butter carmelizes your cookie and the flavor is unreal. Just throw your butter onto the stovetop on high and stir as it melts and boils. You will start to smell a fragrant aroma and your butter will get frothy and started to turn brown. Keep stirring to avoid burning. Once the froth goes away, you will see a brownish color. Turn stove top off and let cool)
-3 Eggs
-1/2 C Coconut Oil
-1/4 C Shredded Coconut (optional)
-2 TBL Vanilla Extract
-1 1/2 tsp Salt
-1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
-3 C Flour
-2 c Oatmeal
-I Bag of chocolate chips ( I like to mix in dark, white and milk)

Scoop onto baking sheet using mini icrecream scooper and bake at 350 for 9 min

Enjoy and share if you’ve made these!
