But to make up for my lack of baking over the weekend, I decided to make my chocolate chip cookies yesterday and post the recipe for y'all. (Recipe at the bottom of post.) Yes, you may thank me later when your family and friends are stuffing their faces with cookies and exclaiming you are a baking genius. Now you might think, "Corinne, I know how to make chocolate chip cookies. The recipe is on the bag for pete's sake." Alas my friends, you have not made these cookies. They are chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside and so, so tasty.
So to make these babies you need: flour, baking soda, salt, butter, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and chocolate chips.
Now...the good stuff. Stir in the chocolate chips. I find half a bag is enough for a batch but if want them with more chocolate, go crazy. (And please excuse the moldy-esque look of these chips. They've been open in my pantry for a couple of months and I am too poor to buy more.) Feel free to taste test the cookie dough at this point...you know...to make sure it's not poisoned...or anything like that.
Recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies
-2 cups flour
-1 tsp baking soda
-3/4 tsp salt
-1/2 cup butter (1 whole stick)
-1 1/2 cups brown sugar (feel free to add more if you want chewier cookies)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together, set aside. Mix wet ingredients together in larger bowl. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in small increments. Mix thoroughly and add chocolate chips. Place dough on cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!
