Today, Friday, we are making chocolate chip cookies. When we chose our recipes for the week, Friday was cookie day and we decided to go classic. Not only are chocolate chip cookies easy to make, but they always come out so well.
Makes 3 – 4 dozen
- ½ lb. butter, softened
- ¾ c granulated sugar
- ¾ c brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 c all-purpose flour
- ½ t baking soda
- ½ t salt
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 2 c (8 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- With a mixer, beat together the butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add the eggs one at a time and continue beating until the mixture is nicely blended.
- Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a different mixing bowl. After stirring together, gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture.
- After blending the dry ingredients and the butter and sugar mixture, add the vanilla and chocolate chips. Stir to evenly distribute the chocolate chips.
- Drop tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the cookies roughly 3 inches apart. Cook for about 10 minutes or until they turn light brown.
- Cool cookies for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before removing them and placing them on a cooling rack.
- Serve warm or store in a container for later.
As expected, the cookies came out just as expected with no difficulties whatsoever except for the fact that we couldn’t get our hands on the electric mixer. Instead, Amory had to mix the sugar and butter by hand with a fork. Hats off to you, Amory! The cookies had to go in for slightly longer than is stated in the recipe, but it may have been because we made the cookies slightly larger than directed.
