Chocolate Chip Cookies

I like to be my niece's favorite aunt, and one of the reasons why she thinks this is 'cause of the chocolate chip cookies that she loves so much! Of course, there are reasons other than food that I lure here towards me with :) but I dish these out to my little darling whenever I can. Here goes:

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup nuts coarsely chopped (optional)
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semi sweet chocolate chips

  1. Mix sugars butters and egg in a large bowl, throw in the flour, baking soda and salt. The dough will a little stiff as you mix. Stir in the nuts and chocolate chip. 
  2. Cover the baking pan with cookie sheet and drop dough tablespoonfuls onto the pan. 
  3. Preheat the over to 375F and bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes or until light brown. Once done, remove the cookies and cool them on a wire rack.
  1. If you are using self rising floor, you do not need to use baking powder. 
  2. Using an ice cream scoop makes the job of arranging the dough on the pan less messy.
  3. If you think these cookies are not tasty enough, throw in half a cup of semi sweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips and butterscotch chips instead of the 2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips. The cookies would taste even more incredible!
