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.

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! :)
