Yesterday I felt like making something really simple so I decided I'd whip up a quick batch of chocolate chip cookies! This recipe is so good! I'd have to say these are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had! OK here's the ingredients!! :)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate chips
Optional: Chopped nuts (I didn't put the nuts in)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large electric mixer until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by the rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until they are golden brown. Cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
These go great with a cold glass of milk! Enjoy!! :)
