Mom’s Famous Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies
My Mom’s Famous and Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of my favorite treats to make (and eat), and beyond the delicious flavor they’re my favorite because they’re an easy cookie recipe with few ingredients.
As someone who loves to bake and cook, I’m all about easy recipes that aren’t overly complicated and if you are to, you’ll love her simple chocolate chip cookie recipe. For as long as I can remember, my mom has always used self-rising flour in her cookie recipes and it makes things so much simpler.
Seriously, if you’ve never tried self rising flour cookies give these a try and you’ll never go back to using all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt again.
For me, making my Mom’s cookies brings back so many childhood memories. I honestly think we all have that one food item that takes us all back, and for me it’s chocolate chip cookies.
I can remember countless times being in the kitchen with my two brothers and my Mom, making a huge batch of her easy chocolate chip cookies, and it was always so much fun to help mix up the batter, carefully scoop out the cookie dough on the pans, and wait anxiously until the timer went off and they were cool enough to eat.
There’s seriously nothing better than eating warm cookies with a cold glass of milk, and enjoying it with the people you love the most. And now, as a Mother myself, I get to share those wonderful traditions with my own two precious boys, and make special memories in the process.

Oh and isn’t my polka dot platter the cutest? My Mother-in-law bought it for me a few years ago and I just love using it for serving my warm, delicious cookies.
While I couldn’t find an exact replica of it online, this red one is made by the same brand and it’s such great quality! I’m also sharing some other gorgeous platters below. I think the pig platter is calling my name- it’s so cute!
A Mother’s Day Gift from the Heart
I don’t know about ya’ll but the most special gifts to me are the ones that are homemade. In case you want to make a batch of these delicious and easy chocolate chip cookies for your own Mom, I created these cute little gift tags that can easily be printed at home on cardstock.
I purchased the jar from the Dollar Tree and used pink twine (also from Dollar Tree) to tie on the gift tag with a bow.
