My favorite chocolate chip cookies
It seems like everyone has their favorite chocolate cookie recipe. I have made so many different ones but lately this recipe seems to be the one I always go back to. Honestly I think I got this recipe off the side of a sugar bag or something. So who knew it would end up being my fave. It is the perfect amount of salty, sweet, crunchy, and chewy. I love it!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt*
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract*
1 package semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside. Combine brown sugar, sugar, and vanilla beat until creamy. Add eggs and beat. Add dry ingredients and mix well. stir in chocolate chips. Drop mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. bake 8-10 minutes.
*I add just a pinch more salt and I add an extra teaspoon of vanilla. I like vanilla and I love salt!!
