Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I love baking chocolate chip cookies as much I love eating them. I do not have one particular recipe. I like trying out new recipes each time and my family and friends help me ferret out the good ones from the bad.

Here's one of them, from www.allhomemadecookies.com :

Here’s a basic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that bakes up perfect every time. This is basically the same as the Hershey's® recipe, and only differs slightly from the Original Nestle's® Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Ingredients:

2 ¼ c. all-purpose flour

1 t. baking soda

½ t. salt (okay to omit if using salted butter)

1 c. unsalted butter

¾ c. granulated sugar

¾ c. light brown sugar, packed

1 t. vanilla extract

2 large eggs, fresh

1 12-ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (any brand makes a great chocolate chip cookie, but our editor favors Hershey's)

Directions:

Heat oven to 350-375 degrees, depending on how hot your oven runs.

* In a small bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Set aside.

* In a larger bowl, beat butter until soft. Then add sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth.

* Add eggs, one at a time, and beat just until blended.

* Gradually add flour mixture and blend well.

* Stir in chips and drop dough onto cool, ungreased cookie sheets, using a Tablespoon or large dinner spoon.

* Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned, do not over bake.

* Cool on wire racks and store in an airtight container.
