  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½   cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½   teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½   cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Microwave the butter for about 40 seconds to just barely melt it.
  3. Using a mixer, beat the butter with the sugars until creamy.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla and beat on low speed until just incorporated.
  5. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt mixing together.
  6. Add the chocolate chips and mix just enough to spread the chocolate chips out in the dough.
  7. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 9-11 minutes until the cookies look puffy and dry and just barely golden. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Overbaking will make the cookies so they are not soft. Pull them out when the cookies are pale and puffy.
  9. Let them cool on the pan for several minutes before placing on a cooking rack.
  10. Store in an airtight container. These cookies also freeze well.
  11. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
