Everyone has this recipe, right? Wanna make it even better? Use free range eggs, real homemade butter and real Madagascar vanilla! Delicious!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup soft butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
12 oz pkg of Nestle's semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. I mix the butter and then throw all the ingredients except the flour in my Kitchen Aid mixer. I mix thoroughly and then add the flour and mix again. I then dump in the chocolate chips and sometimes walnuts or pecans and mix. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Yields about 100 2 inch cookies.

Note: If the cookies are to soft and spread out too much, try adding a little more flour and/or put cookie dough in the refrigerator for a while before making the cookies.

I usually make a double batch and freeze some of the dough for later.

Comments

Dark brown sugar, Special Dark chips, half oat flour/half white flour. Oh, yeah, love this simple recipe, it can be tweaked to suit the day. I am such an experimental cook.
