Superb Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cassie *


You should probably make a double batch of these cookies, unless you're the only one eating, as they won't last long. They are some of the best chocolate chip cookies, I've ever tasted.

This recipe was shared with me, by a good friend from High School and I've been making them ever since. She added nuts to hers, I noted in the recipe that I don't add them. They are perfect as is.

1Stir together the flour, soda and salt, in a small bowl. Set aside.
2Preheat your oven to 325 degree F.

Place one oven rack at the top and one in the middle of oven.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
3In my heavy duty kitchen aid, I added the sugars ad melted butter ~ Mix on low speed until well blended. Scraping sides if need be.
4To this, add the egg, yolk and vanilla extract ~ mix until well blended.
5On low speed, add the dry ingredients and beat only until all dry ingredients are incorporated.
6Fold in chocolate chips.
7Using my ice cream scoop, I placed cookie dough 2 inches apart on lined sheet pan. Can make smaller, but make sure you watch with bake times, that they don't over cook.
8Place one sheet pan on each rack and bake for 7 - 8 minutes, switch sheets to opposite racks and bake another 7 - 8 minutes or until lightly turning golden. Watch to not over bake.
9Cool on sheet pans for 5 minutes, then place in cooling rack ~ if they last that long...LOL!
