My family loves chocolate chip cookies. This is the most requested cookie in my household, even though I can make some pretty good baked goods ... pies, cakes & loaves ... it's the simple things that they seem to love best. A couple of weeks ago I asked my son if he would like me to bake him something for when he came home. He'd been under a lot of stress with the workload at school, and end-of-semester exams. He immediately said "chocolate chip cookies". And I was happy to oblige ...
Would you care to make some yourself? Here's my recipe:
Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips*
Combine flour, baking soda, salt & chocolate chips. Set aside. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Blend in flour mixture. Gently roll into 1-1/2-inch balls and place 2-inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in 375F oven for 8 - 11 minutes until golden brown. Makes about 3 dozen
*ok, so maybe I put in the entire 350g bag of chocolate chips rather than measure them out ;)
These are nice & buttery and don't last long!
so keep the lid on
Thanks for stopping by!
