FAVORITE Chocolate Chip Cookies
I've tried LOTS of chocolate chip cookie recipes over the years and this one is my favorite. Every time I make them they turn out GREAT. I got this recipe from a friend who used to live here, thanks Becky!!
1 C Butter, Softened
1/2 C white sugar
1 1/2 C brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
2 1/2 C Flour
3/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Baking powder
2 1/2 C Chocolate Chips
In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and sugars by hand with a wooden spoon. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix. Add all dry ingredients together and add to wet mixture. Mix until combined. Add chocolate chips and stir. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and drop spoonfuls of dough on sheets. Bake @350 for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake.
Becky's Notes: This needs to be mixed by hand. Use frozen chocolate chips. Use 2 1/2 C Mounded flour. If you level it off, use 3 cups. Don't overbake, they should look slightly underbaked.
This recipe makes about 3 1/2 dozen. I usually double it!
