Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe for chocolate chip cookies is one of the best I’ve found. I’ve tweaked it a little and want to share it with everyone.

001

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla (yes, I said oneĀ tablespoon)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  1. Stir together flour, soda, salt and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Why do I melt the butter? Because I’m kind of impatient when it comes to wanting my cookies NOW, and this makes it faster.
  3. Once butter mixture is combined well, beat in vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and fluffy.
  4. Mix in dry ingredients by hand.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Refrigerate for at least an hour. If you want puffy cookies, DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.
  7. Once dough has been chilled, shape 1 inch pieces into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 14-17 minutes at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), just until they start to turn golden.
  9. Let cool on sheet for 5 minutes or so, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Grab a large glass of milk, sit back and enjoy the praise, (and the cookies, of course).

005The cinnamon is optional, but my family seems to love it.
