The Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie

To me, there’s nothing more satisfying and comforting than a chocolate chip cookie and I love to dip it in milk or vanilla frozen yogurt. Also, another thing I love to do is make ice-cream sandwiches with them…filling two cookies with either chocolate, vanilla, or neopolitan ice-cream or frozen yogurt. Yum Yum….couldn’t be more easy to bake either! They’re always a hit at parties too.
1-1/2 sticks butter (12 tablespoons)
1 c. light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c. white granulated sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2-1/4 c. sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1-1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 c. semi-sweet morsels
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs.
Sift flour and measure out 2 1/4 cups. After measuring the sifted flour, sift again with remaining dry ingredients. Add the flour mixture to the creamed butter and sugar mixture.
Stir in vanilla and semi-sweet morsels. Drop the cookie batter by tablespoonfuls onto a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set and firm and only lightly colored. Do not allow cookies to brown.
Transfer to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container. Cookies may be wrapped well and frozen.
