This week one of my very best friends, Adam, is having a birthday. Unfortunately, I cannot be there to celebrate with him so I decided to bake up some chocolate chip cookies and send them along – nicely packaged in a reusable Tupperware container and plenty of paper towels to avoid breakage while in transit.
I have always had good luck with the classic Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe, and that’s what I used today. They’re slightly crispy, slightly chewy – in my opinion, the perfect cookie!
2 1/4C. All-purpose flour
1t. Baking soda
1C. Butter, softened
3/4C. Granulated sugar
3/4C. Packed brown sugar
1t. Vanilla extract
2 Large eggs
12oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1C. Chopped nuts (did not use)
Preheat oven to 375.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
Cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (if using).
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown (mine took about 13 minutes, I think I just made them too big).
Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Happy Birthday Dork!
Us at my wedding.
