Cake Crumb Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had a ton of cake scraps, and didn’t care for the cookie recipes that all needed oatmeal. I modified this recipe from a couple of others I had found.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Combine all ingrediants except chocolate chips and nuts.
  3. Mix with paddle on low for 1 minute, until well blended
  4. Fold in chips and nuts
  5. Scoop onto cookie sheets covered with parchment paper and bake for 10-13 minutes until golden brown.
  6. These also freeze very nicely. this also works with chocolate cake crumbs, and white chocolate chips!
