Yesterday was National Homemade Cookies day. What a perfect day! I often wonder how they come up with these so called holidays, but of course I'm not complaining. I never need an excuse to make homemade cookies.
My youngest son is pretty picky but his all time favorite cookie is chocolate chip. I mean really, who can go wrong with that? This is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe made with mini morsels. I like that word, morsels. It's fun to say. Hee hee...
I like to use my big scooper for these cookies. They puff up in the oven but then when you take them out to cool they flatten and all the mini chips come to the top. They are thin and crispy, yet chewy. Totally delicious.
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
12 oz. mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar with your mixer until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, and then vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Fold in morsels. Drop by rounded scoop onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Bake for approx. 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
