Chocolate Chip Cookie Day With Nielsen-Ma​ssey Vanilla {Giveaway}

Did you know that May 15th is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day (NCCCD)?!  In theory I think food-based holidays are flipping wonderful, but I don’t manage to celebrate as many of them as I would like.


Thanks to Nielsen-Ma​ssey Vanillas though, I’ve got Chocolate Chip Cookie Day covered this year.


Please note – the vanilla was sent to me free of charge to review.  I was also given the opportunity to host a giveaway for you guys.  I was not provided further compensation for this post.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe courtesy of Nielsen-Massey Vanillas and Renee Hartzler.

1 ½ c. butter, softened
1 ¼ c. white sugar
1 ¼ c. brown sugar
1 T. Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 eggs
4 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 ¾ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cream of tartar
12 oz  semi-sweet chocolate chips. (2 c.)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, soda, salt, baking powder and cream of tartar. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop with a #40 scoop (looks like a metal mini ice cream scoop) or a rounded measuring tablespoonful about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased insulated baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Cool slightly: remove from baking sheet. Cool on wire rack. Makes about 4 dozen crackly, chewy-crispy bakery-style cookies.


I did a mix of milk and dark chocolate chips but other than that I followed their instructions.  This recipe was legit; many cookies have been consumed!

  1. Chocolate chip cookies are by far my most favorite dessert/treat/breakfast/snack. I’ll be celebrating on May 15th for sure!

  2. I don’t usually comment on giveaway posts unless I’d REALLY like to win something. And I’d REALLY like to win this vanilla! 😉 Those cookies look awesome!
