family favorite recipe: chewy chocolate chip cookies

Fresh out of the oven, these babies are soft in the middle and crisp on the edges…mmmm! They are so good, I literally have never even tried another chocolate chip cookie recipe since I started making this one.

I know I got this recipe from a family member, but it was so many years ago, I can’t remember who it was. Now I write names on the recipes I get from friends and family!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cream together:

2 eggs

3/4 Cup brown sugar

3/4 Cup white sugar

1 Cup butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Sift together:

2 1/2 Cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

Combine dry ingredients with creamed mixture. Stir in 12 ounces chocolate chips (I like to use half milk chocolate and half semi-sweet, but the possibilities are endless!)

Drop by spoonful onto parchment lined cookie sheet. (I use parchment for EVERYTHING because I LOVE the easy cleanup!)

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.

Make ahead tip: If you have a cookie dough scoop, drop cookie dough balls onto a cookie sheet and put the entire cookie sheet in the freezer for about an hour. Transfer the balls to a Ziploc freezer bag and return to the freezer. Instead of making 4 1/2 dozen cookies all at once, you can now take out a few at a time for fresh hot cookies any time you want them.
