The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies


These are hands down, my favourite chocolate chip cookies. I usually make them about once a week, and keep them frozen in freezer. That way I can pop a couple in my lunch, and enjoy anytime! Sadly, I don't have any in the freezer right now, and I can't make any tonight as I am out of eggs, butter, and chocolate chips (kind of the star ingredients!). I've tried dozens of recipes, and now I never deviate from this one.

Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups of flour (I sometimes use half whole wheat flour)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup of butter, room temp
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla
2 eggs, room temp
1 cup plus a few more chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat for 30 sec or until well mixed. Add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop heaping spoonfuls of cookie dough onto cookie sheets, and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cookies will look slightly underdone when you take them out. Let cool on cookie sheet for a couple minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. I find I can usually get 36 mid-sized cookies per batch.
