True story: I made 36 of these one afternoon, and put 12 aside for a friend who’d just had a baby. Between myself, Chris and the two girlfriends I had over in the evening, we consumed 22 of these before the end of the day. 22! Needless to say, you may have just found your go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe!
UPDATE: Friend with baby said her cookies didn’t last the day either!
It’s not a complicated recipe and uses all the typical ingredients you would expect to find in a chocolate chip cookie.
Let’s take a nice close look at these 🙂
Classic Chocolate Chip Recipe
Nonstick vegetable oil spray
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup (packed) brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups milk-chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Spray large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl to blend. Using electric mixer (or a fork and some elbow grease), beat butter in large bowl until light and fluffy.
2. Add sugar and brown sugar; beat until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until mixture is creamy and well blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating just until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Working in batches, drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 -3 inches apart.
4. Bake cookies until pale brown, about 15 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on sheet. Transfer cookies to racks and cool completely.
