My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

We made homemade chocolate chip cookies yesterday, these are our very favorite. I am a high maintenance, diva when it comes to cookies....okay there, I said it. I do not like a crunchy cookie! Yuck! I like the edges to be a little (very little) crispy and the rest soft.  I thought I would share the recipe we use with you. 

2 1/4 cup of flour
3/4 cup of white sugar
1 cup of light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 stick of melted butter (slightly cooled)
1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (milk chocolate) We don't use semi sweet in our house!
nuts (if you prefer) My husband loves pecans in his. 

Preheat your oven to 350. 

Next soften butter and set aside. 

In your mixer, combine your sugars and butter. Mix well. Then, add vanilla and eggs. Mix well. Be sure there are no lumps.

In a small bowl, combine flour, salt & baking soda. Stir together with a fork. 

Slowly, add your flour mixture to the other mixture. Mix until just combined. Stir in your chocolate chips and nuts (if you prefer).

Spray your cookie sheets (I use Pam). Bake at 350 for 11 minutes or just until done. I always take mine out a little early to prevent hard cookies! Cool on a rack. 

I never have a problem with taste testers in our house. 

I had some cute, little helpers. We always have so much fun in the kitchen. I love having my kids in the kitchen with me. 

They couldn't wait until they were ready!

Pure perfection. 

You could serve them the traditional way, warm with a glass of milk. You could also get a small scoop of ice cream and put it on cookie and another on top, you have a cookie/ice cream sandwich. Yum! A bowl of ice cream with cookies on top. There you have it, our favorite chocolate chip cookie. Enjoy!
