Chocolate Chip Cookies

 "Number one, I absolutely love making chocolate chip cookies. I mean, it's fun. It's exciting. Beyond the fact that I love making them, I love eating them. "

Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Yield 16 Big Cookies


1 cup softened butter
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Stir together flour and baking soda and set aside
Beat butter for 30 seconds then add both sugars and beat on medium speed for 1 minute
Add the eggs and vanila and beat for 1 minute on medium speed
Add half the flour mixture and blend on low then add the rest of the flour mixture
Using a wooden spoon or spatula mix in chocolate chips.
I like to line the cookie sheet with waxed or parchment paper but you don't have to.
Use an ice-cream scoop to get evenly sized cookies and leave about 2 inches or 5 cm between each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown
