Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies...
No matter where I live, I will always be an all American girl and what American doesn't love chocolate chip cookies? Give me a cup of milk and I'm good to go. 1 cup flour, 1 cup chocolate chips, it seriously doens't get any better than that.
1 1/8 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg (room teperature)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350*. In a bowl sift your flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Cream your butter and both sugars in your electric mixer using the paddle attachment or in a medium bowl with an electric whisk. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed and add your egg and vanilla, beat until well combined. Add your dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in your chocolate chips.
Drop tablespoon size balls onto a non stick cookie sheet and bake for approximately 8 minutes or until the edges are golden (the center of the cookies should be soft and lighter in color than the edges). Cool or eat warm with a cup of cold milk.
