Well... here we go!
I have a passion for chocolate chip cookies! I probably have over 100 different recipes, in search of the
'best' chocolate chip cookie. However, I always return to my tried and true, soft and chewy, perfect chocolate chip cookie for me! They make me happy - I love getting the mixer out, anticipating the whirl of the blades as I cream the butter, add the flour and then finally the chocolate chips!
When my family is around it is a battle trying to keep the dough in the bowl and not being scooped up by a finger or a spoon. (Really, who doesn't love cookie dough)
I love frozen cookies, so the first batch goes right into a ziploc baggie (gallon size) and placed in the freezer. I happen to have a thing for ziploc baggies as well.
So, I thought it would be appropriate, for my first post, to share my all time favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Whether you like them warm, right out of the oven, or frozen, allowed to thaw for just a minute before you submerge them in a cold glass of milk, I don't think they will disappoint you.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups white sugar
Cream these ingredients, then add:
2 tsp vanilla
Mix together. Then in a separate bowl combine:
6 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. I keep my mixer going at a slow speed the whole time.
Now for the fun part!
Add: 1/2 pkg chocolate chips
1/2 pkg white chocolate chips
1/2 pkg butterscotch chips
This is the important part. Bake at 350 for exactly 10 minutes. Do not over bake!!
