Recipe for "Scrumptious Soft Cookies"


Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.


Unsalted Butter, Room Temperature 1 cup
Granulated Sugar 1/2 cup
All-Purpose Flour 2 1/4 cups
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Large Eggs 2
Semisweet And/or Milk Chocolate Chips 2 cups
Packed Light-Brown Sugar 1 cup
Salt 1 tsp
Pure Vanilla Extract 2 tsp



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.


In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.


Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed.Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.


Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.


Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes.


Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
