Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are really good. I would not wait until they turn too brown on the top unless you want them crunchy. Either way though — they are good.

Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
(The original recipe calls for nuts and a whole package of chocolate chips but I scaled back on the chips and didn’t use the nuts.)
  1. Heat the oven to 375ºF
  2. Mix the sugars, butter and egg in a large bowl
  3. Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt (the dough will be stiff)
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips
  5. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet or use parchment paper as a liner on the cookie sheet
  6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown — the center will be soft, then cool slightly and remove from cookie sheet
  7. Cool on a wire rack
