The recipe is pretty straight forward and I guarantee you, this will be your go to recipe for years to come. I baked a mixed of different cookies, about 300 for the Cancer Center and they all went within a couple of hours. People were coming to me saying how delicious they were. Here is one of the recipes.
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat oven at 375 degree F
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In the bowl of your electric mixer, beat the butter until creamy and smooth. Add the white and brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, making sure they are well mixed. Scrape the side of the bowl and add the vanilla, mix well.
In another bowl mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture. Mix well then add the chocolate chips and the nuts. Mix until well incorporated. Use an ice cream scooper, for these I used a medium size, but if you want to make a lot of cookies use a small one. If you don't have one then drop about two tablespoons of dough into a the prepared baking sheets and bake cookies for about 10-14 minutes or until the edge of the cookies are nice and golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!!
Makes about 4 dozen small cookies
