Yields: 2 dozen cookies. Preheat oven on 350 degrees.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups ( or more) of semi sweet or milk chocolate chips

Directions: In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda; set aside. In a separate bowl combine butter softened, both sugars, and beat with a mixer on medium speed. Then add eggs and vanilla extract. Then combine wet ingredients with dry. Stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon.

Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheet. You can line your baking sheet with parchment paper, however I did not.

Bake until cookies are golden brown around the edges but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 1-2 minutes. You can store the cookies in an air tight container for up to about a week. And ENJOY!
