There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies wafting through the kitchen. Whether you’re looking for a sweet treat to enjoy on a cozy evening at home or want to impress your guests at a party, this chocolate chip cookie recipe is sure to hit the spot.
– 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1 cup brown sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 3 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 2 cups chocolate chips
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Step 2: Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Mix well after each addition.
Step 3: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until well combined.
Step 4: Fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
Step 5: Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, drop rounded dough onto an ungreased baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
Step 6: Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. The centers may appear slightly underdone, but they will continue to cook as they cool.
Step 7: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Now, it’s time to enjoy your freshly baked chocolate chip cookies! Serve them warm with a glass of cold milk or package them up for a sweet homemade gift.
