Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have a gazillion different chocolate chip cookies on my blog, but I didn’t have the one recipe that I used over and over again. This is, by far, the best one of all.
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (11.25 oz.)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts, optional
- 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in nuts, if using, and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly, remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
(I bake mine exactly 10 minutes. They always look like they are not done, but they are. I let them sit in the pan 5 minutes before I remove them to a wire rack. They cook a little more sitting on the pan.)
Servings: 3 1/2 to 4 dozen cookies.
