Obviously (and unfortunately) I did not invent chocolate chip cookies. However I have made enough chocolate chip cookies that I do not need recipes anymore. I understand the ingredients that do make chocolate chip cookies. The same with pancakes, I can make them with my eyes closed!
The proportion of Ingredients below I have made about 5 times and I finally decided that it made a good enough chocolate chip cookie that I wanted to share. It is super simple to remember, and super delicious!
1 stick of butter softened
1 T vanilla extract (NOT immitation)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
A lot of chocolate chips
Pre- heat oven to 350 degrees F. put the stick of butter with the wrapper in the oven for two minutes to soften it. Good tip I figured of out to soften butter. Mix egg, butter, sugars and vanilla until smooth.
Then add flour, salt and baking soda. Once all mixed add the chocolate chips. I am in LOVE with dark chocolate chunks. So flavorful!
Shape the dough into small round balls and add the a non-stick sheet or use a silpat. These are awesome!
Bake at 10 minutes and you are done!
This recipe also makes enough for a whole extra batch which freezes great!
Hope you make them and enjoy them!
