Nothing better than a Sunday making chocolate chip cookies with my best gal G!  For fear of eating them all myself, I sent them home to mom and dad packaged up in the small cardboard clamshell and a little caramel FDA waxed tissue.

Want to try my favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies…here you go!

Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies – from The New Basics Cookbook by Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons (lightly packed) light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

1. Preheat the oven to 375F.  Lightly grease the pans (or use parchment paper or a Silpat..like I do!)
2. Stir the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl
3. Combine the butter, both sugars, and the vanilla in a mixing bowl, and beat until light.  Beat in the egg.  Slowly add the flour mixture, beating until smooth.  Then stir in the chocolate morsels.
4. Drop the batter by rounded dessert spoonfuls, 3 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheets.  Bake 5 minutes.  Remove the baking sheets from the oven, rap them twice on the counter or stove top, and return them to the oven.  Bake 4 minutes.  Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Yields 2 dozen

Garnish + Enjoy
