Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

These classic chocolate chip cookies came out perfect.  They are chewy in the middle and crisp on the outside.  These are thinner chocolate chip cookies too which I tend to favor.  I also tasted the cookie dough and it was delicious.  If your cookie dough doesn't taste right, your cookies won't either.  Overall, this is a great classic chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I enjoyed a couple of cookies with a glass of milk; these cookies make for great dunking too!

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

½ cup butter, room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup and 2 tablespoons flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, combine butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.  Beat until light and fluffy.

Beat in egg and vanilla.

Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda.  Slowly add to creamed mixture, half a cup at a time.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop the batter by tablespoon, well apart, on a baking sheet.  I had 8 cookies per baking sheet.

Bake for 9 to 10 minutes.

Allow to cool on baking sheet for 1 minute then move to wire cooling racks.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.  I made approximately 27 cookies.
