Go To Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies

 I have to tell you about the amazing cookies I have been making. The recipe is from Jenna at Eatliverun.com and it never fails. One thing to remember, if you over cream butter and sugar, the cookies come out thinner and spread a lot when they are baking. Don't over-cream, just mix them together and move on (like coaches should do). Go on over to Eat, Live, Run to see the original recipe and read up on her baking tips. She recommended dark brown sugar, but both work. The biggest recipe difference is the type of chocolate chips I choose to use, and trust me, you will want to use them too! I just go ahead and throw the whole bag in, minus a few handfuls. Oops.

I don't have a picture because these are too good to make it through a photography session. Next time, and yes, there will be a next time.


Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes about two dozen cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients and set them aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Mix them just until they are creamy and well combined- be careful not to over mix.
  4. Add one egg to the butter and sugar mixture and mix it in. Add the second egg and mix it in well. Then add vanilla and stir gently until combined. 
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture. When well combined and forms a dough, add chocolate chips. Mix them in lightly.
  6. Spoon roughly quarter sized pieces of dough onto a pan ( I spray it first with nonstick spray,  but you don't have to, I'm just paranoid)
  7. Bake for about 12 minutes or until golden brown. 

Did you notice the emphasis on Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips? They're life changing. There you have it, the key to world peace. I always knew it would be found in chocolate. 
What's your favorite cookie recipe?
