Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie?! This recipe is simple but tastes divine. As long as you have a mixer and these fairly standard ingredients, you’re just a few steps away from chocolate chip heaven!
3/4 c – granulated sugar
3/4 c – brown sugar, packed
2 sticks – butter, softened
1 tsp – vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cup – white flour
1 tsp – salt
1 tsp – baking soda
1/2 c – semi sweet chocolate chips (or more if you like your cookies extra-chocolate-y)
(beat mixture well between each of the following…)
1. Add sugar, brown sugar and butter
2. Add vanilla
3. Add the two eggs.
I like to crack them into a separate bowl in case any bits of shell slips in. Makes it easier to dig it out!
4. Add flour, salt and baking soda.
I tend to alternate – flour, baking soda, flour, salt, flour. Not sure if it makes a difference but it helps me keep track of what’s left to add.
5. Add in chocolate chips.
And if you’re me, consume heavy amounts of cookie dough (just testing it, right?). Though not recommended because it usually will lead to quite a tummy ache.
Scoop the dough in small 1-inch balls onto lined cookie sheets (I have these wonderful rubber liners, but you can use parchment paper or tinfoil as well). It depends on the size of the pan, but I usually put a dozen per cookie sheet to avoid cookies merging and melting together.
Bake at 375°F for about ten minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
Depending on how much cookie dough you’ve already eaten, there should be about 2.5-3 dozen cookies.
