Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everyone has a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. And they’re all most likely based on the Toll House Cookie recipe. Mine is very similar to the Toll House Cookie recipe. With a few tweaks. I add an extra 1/4 cup of flour to fluff them up. And I use Aldi brand chocolate chips. They’re much cheaper! And just as good. I also cool the cookie dough in the fridge for a bit before I bake the cookies. I find it keeps the cookies from going flat. I prefer puffier cookies to flat ones. But that’s just me.

Here’s my recipe:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Bakers Corner Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar in an electric mixer until creamy. Then add vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually mix in flour, baking soda and salt until well mixed. Stir in chocolate morsels. Cool dough in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes. Then drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
