Chocolate Chip Cookies or basic cookie batter

I've tried to "formulate" a basic batter for cookies that could suit most chip cookies like chocolate chip or butterscotch or white chocolate chip. This one is a basic recipe for me and I hope you can use it for your cookies too.

Serves:

5 dozen

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

2 1/4 c
flour
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking soda
1 c
butter, unsalted ( don't use margarine it tends to make the batter runny)
3/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 c
sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 large
eggs
1 3/4 c
chips (chocolate, butterscotch or your choice)
1 c
chopped nuts (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375*

If you do not have an oven thermometer watch cookies closely when using real butter, so that the bottom doesn't burn.
2
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, add eggs until thoroughly mixed.
3
Add salt and soda to the butter mixture, slowly add flour. Yes I know this seems unconventional, but I've found that it does seem to work better. Then add your chips and nuts by hand. Use a teaspoon to drop to the cookie sheet. I use parchment paper to prevent burning as much as possible. Enjoy!
