Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies
So I went to Joy of Baking for a recipe and I'm so glad I did because these cookies were so good, better than any cookie I bought at a grocery store, and only took 30 minutes to make.
Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies [source]
-1 cup of softened butter
-3/4 cup white sugar
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-2 large eggs
-1+1/2 tsp vanilla
-2+1/4 cup all purpose flour
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-1+1/2 cup chocolate chips
Beat the softened butter in a bowl with a hand mixer until fluffy. Then add the white and brown sugar and beat again. Then add the vanilla and eggs, and beat until well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add it to the wet mixture and beat until well combined. Then stir in your chocolate chips.
Use a cookie scoop or two spoons to make 1 tbsp balls of dough and place them onto a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Pat down the dough balls and bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are brown. Bring out of the oven, let them rest on the cookie sheet for a minute, and then transfer them to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Eat immediately because they will taste fantastic!
