I have made this chocolate chip recipe countless times and it never fails to amaze me. It’s so incredibly easy and the finished product is always delicious.
One of the main reasons that I make this recipe so much is Travis’ fondness of cookies. You’re probably saying to yourself that that’s not very surprising, because everyone’s fond of cookies, right? While everyone may be fond of cookies, not everyone loves cookies like Travis does.
I can always count on him asking me to bake cookies. Normally at 8:30 at night, when the last thing I want to be doing is baking. When I do bake for him though, these are always the cookies he requests. We’ve tried others, but they don’t quite match up.
I took the batch that I made for the demo pictures to the beach for my Tuesday night Biblestudy (I know. That’s Southern California living right there), and I left the Ziplock bag of cookies on my towel, under my sweatshirt, while we swam. When we got back to our stuff, we stumbled upon the seagulls enjoying my fresh-baked treasures. I think my heart skipped a beat, and not in a good way. We had to throw away the whole bag, fearing some bird transmitted disease. Apparently everyone really does love my chocolate chip cookies 😦
This is so true, especially in our household. I think I’m the only one in our family who actually likes to eat raisins straight out of the bag, but all of us agree that chocolate chip cookies beat oatmeal raisin any day of the week- I can practically feel all you oatmeal raisin lovers cringing right now.
Preheat oven to 350*. Cream butter and sugar.
Mix in eggs and vanilla. Then, add flour, baking soda, and salt, mixing well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
And now, for the best part…
Every time I make cookies, my family hovers in the kitchen, pretending to be busy, until I announce that the dough is done.
This has to be one of the most dangerous things that you could possibly leave out on the counter for any period of time-
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, and using cookie scoop, scoop dough onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes and remove to cooling rack.
