Chocolate Chip Cookies
Sure, slice and bake cookies are convenient, but chocolate chip cookies from scratch taste better and are easier to make than you think.
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 large egg
- 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup coursley chopped nuts optional
- 1 bag 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugars and the butter.
Add vanilla and eggs and mix until just combined.
Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.
Using a wooden spoon, add in nuts if using and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, about two inches apart, onto a prepared cookie sheet.
Bake approximately 8-10 minutes or until edges look done, but centers are still soft. Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet about 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to continue cooling.
