Classic. You know, with as many chocolate chip cookies as I have had, you would think I would get sick of them.....but, they are always delicious. There is something so satisfying about that chocolately, cookie combination that seems to always hit the spot. Pulling these right out of the oven when they are hot, fresh, and gooey and then cooling it down with a nice glass of milk will never disappoint. I know there are a TON of chocolate chip cookie recipes out there, but this one has been my favorite for a long time :) I know, I know, it's quite a claim to say they are the best, but seriously. MMMMM. These are the real deal. See how there are only two cookies in the picture? Well.....Let's just say I procrastinated taking a picture until a day later, and woke up to only two cookies left! ha ha. Apparently there are some cookie monsters in my house..... Anyway, enjoy! Oh....and just a side note, I usually make half this recipe.....half makes about 3 dozen.
2 cups butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla
6 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
4 cups chocolate chips (I love Ghiradelli milk chocolate!)
1. Combine butter and sugars, then gradually add vanilla and eggs.
2. Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. Combine flour and sugar mixture. Beat well.
3. Mix in chocolate chips, and drop in teaspoons on a cookie sheet.
4. Bake at 350 F for 7-9 minutes. Take them out when they are barely brown.
