Today is National Chocolate Chip Day, which is a really good thing because I was making chocolate chip cookies for a party today anyway.
Here is my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from my good friend Wendy. They are soft, chewy, and delicious!
Wendy's Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter ( I personally use 3/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening, but they're good either way)
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
3 cups flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Blend together sugar, brown sugar and butter. Add eggs, one at a time (blending well after each addition). Add and mix well the soda, vanilla, salt, flour and chocolate chips. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes on ungreased cookie sheets. Makes 2 1/2 - 3 dozen cookies.
Assemble all ingredients
Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl
Cream together sugars and butter.
(I forgot that I loaned my mixer to my daughter-in-law so that's why I'm using a spoon)
I beat the eggs slightly with a fork and add the vanilla to them, then I add them to the sugars and butter
Beat in the flour mixture
Stir in chocolate chips
Scoop onto cookie sheet with medium size cookie scoop or teaspoons.
Bake at 375 for 9 minutes or until cookies are golden brown around the edges.
Try not to over bake as this will make them hard.
