Ah...The Best Cookies EVER
Just look at them. Large stacks of those sweet cookies. With morsels of decadent chocolate. Yum.
My mom has been making these cookies for what seems like forever. The batter honestly tastes better than the cookies themselves (but hey, doesn't it always?). But, these cookies are IRRESISTABLE! Enjoy!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 brown sugar, packed
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (12 oz) of semi-sweet chocolate chips ( we interchange that with butterscotch, peanut butter, or white chocolate and crasins depending on our mood:))
Heat oven to 375. Mix butter, sugars and egg. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt (dough will be stiff) Stir in choclate chips by hand. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfulls about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 8 to 10 minutes (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheets.
This recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies. They freeze well and are great anytime of the year, as any chocolate cookie should be.
This recipe is an oldie but a goody. I wonder if you can see the various stains on this original recipe?
Yeah, it's all ripped, but hey!, that only makes it easier to find in the recipe box!
This is an extremely kid friendly recipe! Have fun and enjoy!
