The Best Cookies Ever

My cousin Darci gave me the best recipe for chocolate chip cookies. They are delicious (like I eat 6 at a time delicious) and I think you should make them too! I was in the mood to do some baking and somehow I convinced Peter that it would be fun if he helped. I think he mostly enjoyed eating the cookie dough.

Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs (room temp if possible)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt (I added 2 teaspoons of sea salt for a sweet/salty creation!)
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream butter, brown sugar and white sugar together in a mixer (I'm not cool enough to have a fancy mixer, so I just use my hand mixer.) Then add the eggs, one at a time. Beat until creamy. Add the vanilla.

In another bowl mix the dry ingredients together before slowly adding them to the creamed mixture. When combined, stop the mixer and add the semi-sweet chips. Mix up and then drop by the teaspoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Mold them into a ball as best as you can with the spoon for a more shaped cookie.

Bake on 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool. Enjoy!

(Thanks for the great recipe Darci!)

I forgot to take a picture of the finished cookies. This is reason #23 why I'm the lamest blogger ever. I guess you'll just have to make some to see (and enjoy) the final product!
