This is my favorite cookie recipe and the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I use anymore. I like them so much I painted a picture of them! (And see, I took a little bite out of the one at the end!)
I think what makes them so good is the real butter, real vanilla extract and the milk chocolate Ghirardelli chocolate chips.
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter (unsalted)
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract ( the real deal!)
2 large eggs
18 ounces (3 cups) milk chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli chocolate chips - yum!)
Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
Cream butter with sugars until light. Beat in vanilla and eggs until smooth. Beat dry ingredients into creamed mixture, a little at a time. Add chocolate chips and stir to mix well.
Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto baking sheets and bake at 325° F for approx. 10 minutes. Enjoy!
