I am a firm believer in the saying “Life’s Short. Eat Cookies.” My favorite (and always will be my favorite) are the classic chocolate chip cookies! I love trying recipes to find the absolute best one out there. Recently I came across one on pinterest (sadly I do not have the original source- but this was not my recipe, just sharing!)
Here it is:
1 cup butter (two sticks)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (I used light brown)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 12 oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream together the butter and sugar. Then add in the eggs and vanilla. Slowly add flour, salt and baking soda. Add chocolate chips. Take a spoonful for yourself!
I cooked mine in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes. The first batch (without refrigerator time) came out yummy but a little flat. I took the dough out the next day and baked again, this time 350 degrees for 10 minutes, and they came out thick and fluffy!
Here are some pictures taken along the way:
Starting to look like cookie dough!
Warning: leaving dough unattended can, and will, result in missing pieces- at least in my home it does!
This was the first batch- flat but really yummy!
The second batch (after being refrigerated for 24 hrs.) came out 3x as thick!
