Chocolate Chip Cookies

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
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixture, beat the butter and sugars at medium speed until creamy and smooth.
  4. Add the vanilla and eggs, one at a time.   Mix on low speed until well combined.
  5. Next, gradually blend the dry mixture into the creamed butter mixture.
  6. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Drop the cookies by tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake about 8-9 minutes or until just golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
