Chocolate chip cookies are definitely a popular cookie… and for good reason. It’s in the combination of a sugary cookie and melted chocolate chunks. Not to mention their tastiness increases exponentially when dunked in a cup of cold milk! There really is nothing like a soft, warm chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven.
So for that classic dessert that all of us have smelled, eaten, and loved… here is my spin on them. While I was in college I tried various recipes. After playing around with the ingredients, this is what I came up with. They are soft and chewy, but the sugar gives them the perfect amount of crisp.
Chocolate Chip Cookies: (makes about 3 dozen)
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 t salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixture, beat the butter and sugars at medium speed until creamy and smooth.
- Add the vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Mix on low speed until well combined.
- Next, gradually blend the dry mixture into the creamed butter mixture.
- Finally, fold in the chocolate chips.
- Drop the cookies by tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 8-9 minutes or until just golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
