Best So Far Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Taken from It Must’ve Been Something I Ate by Jeffrey Steingarten. He’s got tons of recipes in that book and it’s a great easy read. Made for a friends birthday!

I used just under the correct amount of flour….and they ran all over the baking tray and that’s why they are square in the photos. I had to cut them apart.


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2-2 cups chocolate chips: I used dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, homemade nutella chips
  1. 1 cup of nutella
  2. 1/4 cup butter


1) To make the nutella chips melt the butter and nutella in a pan.

2) Pour over tin foil and freeze for 2 hours.

3) Chop into pieces.

4) Preheat the oven to 375F/190C or toaster oven to 140C.

5) In a small bowl, mix the four, salt and baking soda.

6) In a large bowl mix the butter and sugars (all 3).

7) Add the vanilla, water, and egg.

8) Add the flour mixture.

9) Add the chocolate chips
