Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'd like to share a great recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I have several favorites but this seems to be the one that I revert to whenever I want something that is quick and easy to prepare.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 oz. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the butter and both sugars. Cream together until light and fluffy.

Add vanilla and eggs. Mix until well incorporated into the creamed mixture.

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and stir until a stiff dough forms.

Stir in your favorite chocolate chips.

Place cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet or onto parchment paper. I like to make large cookies so I use a medium-sized cookie scoop to form the dough balls. Bake for approximately 18 minutes. Adjust your time to 10-12 minutes if you are making smaller cookies.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Voila! Now go save yourself a few before your family devours them!
