Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies? I think I have been making these cookies since I was about 12 years old. Somehow, they have gotten better with age! I hardly make them any more as my daughter has now mastered the task. Probably had something to do with a fund raiser at school a few years ago...when we made over 2,500!
She made them again this week, so I thought it fine time to put up this age old favourite of mine.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes approx 4 dozen cookies
1 Cup/225 grams of butter
3/4 Cup/150 grams of brown sugar
1/2 Cup/100 grams of white granulated sugar
2 Cups/250 grams of plain flour
2 Cups/350 grams of chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter on high speed for a minute or so. Add the brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla. Beat until mixture is combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Stir in flour mixture until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 7 or 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven and while still warm, slightly flatten each cookie gently with the back of a spatula. This is something I only started doing a few years back, and the result is a much more dense and chewy cookie.
Let cool a few minutes before transferring the cookies to a wire rack. Once cooled completely can be stored in an airtight container for about a week.
