For the first post on this blog I thought it appropriate to share a post directly related to the blog name and actually my blog’s header image. So if you’re gazing at the header image thinking, “I want those cookies,” here’s the recipe for you.
Yesterday some really good family friends stopped by for a short visit. One of my younger brother’s first reaction to hearing when they would be arriving was: “We need to make cookies.” Which he did, specifically he made a double batch of the classic chocolate chip cookies.
This recipe, from Betty Crocker’s Old Fashioned Cookbook, has become one of our favorites and we make them relatively frequently. They’re super easy, pretty quick to make, and taste delicious.
So go make a batch, or two!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup Butter, softened
- ¾ cup sugar
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups (12 oz.) chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375°. Cream butter and sugars. Add in egg. Stir flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake on ungreased pan for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown.
Makes 6 Dozen.
