My gooey chocolate chip cookies! (& turtle pecan:•)

Okay so last night my brother was hungry, no surprise here, and I being the motherly 18 year old I am, decided that I was going to make some cookies and the fact that it was 1 am wasnt going to stop me😅.

I have been making cookies since I was a lil youngster so I think I know a thing or two(•;

I will be honest I looked at several different recipes and rules for rising, gooeiness, and crispy factors to come up with the perfect cookie… MY COOKIES RECIPE!!!! So. Here. It. Is. 

My dad told me these were the BEST cookies I have ever made… My dad is about as easy to please as that french guy on cupcake wars👀(literally my dad acts like him when I make him food.. Hahaha)


Makes: 64 cookies

  • 2 1/4 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp of fine salt
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 2 (unsalted) sticks of butter
  • 3/4 of white sugar 
  • 1 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla bean paste…(extract works too🙄 if you dont have any…please note that its cheap and at Walmart in party supplies!!!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 of (mini, because they are cuter) chocolate chips.( I like GHIRARDELLI❤️😍)
  • 1 cup of roughly chopped nuts ( I used half walnuts and half pecans)
  • 1 heaping tsp of sour cream! “A dollop of Daisy” (-:

EXTRA Ingredients:

  • More pecans but halves 
  • Fine Salt
  • Caramel (GHIRARDELLI!!!)
  • More chocolate chips!!!


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 and transport your oven rack to a lower height (3rd from top is fine) btw do this before its hot.. Lol
  2. Combine your dry ingredients. Gather the flour, salt, and baking soda into a medium size mixing bowl, and WHISK AWAY!
  3. Beat the butter in a separate bowl, or stand mixer(I put mine in the microwave for several seconds to soften it up.) 
  4. Add both the white, & brown sugars and the vanilla bean, mix well. (If you must… Taste it now, before you add eggs!)
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  6. GRADUALLY Add the flour especially when using a stand mixer those things can turn your counter into a mess if you arent careful!🙈
  7. Add the 3 most important parts… First add that secret “dollop of Daisy” then follow with a quick mix then add your morsels and chopped nuts!
  8. Drop teaspoon sized cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I fit around 16 on mine!!(2 inches apart id perfect!)
  9. Put these in the oven for 7 minutes… Add a minute if needed but I find that its not necessarily needed!(: Buuuut it might depend on where you are also!!
  10. BONUS!!! After these babes come out of the oven you can be extra like me and top them with a half of a pecan, drizzle caramel sauce on top and do a LIL sprinkle of salt! 

BAM! If you make these everyone will love you, btw my brother ended up eating like 10, and my dad ate 3(mostly because he isnt a bottomless pit!😉)

IK IK, I am EXTREMELY extra when it comes to food, whatever makes it more aesthetically pleasing, sign me up… I mean who else do you know that puts lipstick on at 2 am just so she can put “kisses” on her handmade labels for her cookies… I mean honestly?!

 I hope you enjoyed this post! Aaaannnd I really hope you make these! THEY ARE SO FREAKING CHEWY AND GOOEY AND WARM AND MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOURE AT GRANDMAS!!! If you do make these I want to know! Tag me in your pics or send  me an email! Insta: @ciaobellaelle !!! Email:

Until next time, xxo Rae
