Karrie’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was surprised this recipe wasn’t here!

This is the perfect recipe for someone who appreciates the perfect chocolate chip cookie – soft and chewy.

1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs

MIX WELL, then add:

1 t vanilla
1 t baking soda
bit of salt

MIX WELL, then add:

3-4ish cups of flour

Here’s secret #1…you need to add enough flour so that you can roll the dough into balls without it sticking on your hands BUT stop adding flour as soon as you reach the “un-sticky” stage.  I start by adding 3 cups of flour, mixing it in really well, then adding about 1/8 – 1/4 cup more at a time until you get to the right amount.

THEN, stir in 1/2 bag of chocolate chips . 6 ounces or so.

Bake at 350 for 7-8  minutes, and not 30 seconds more.  That is secret #2.  At 8ish minutes, the cookies will look like they need another 2 minutes.  Take them out anyway, and let them sit until almost cool.

Secret #3, taught to me by a college roommate.  Put the cookies in an airtight container with a slice of bread.  The bread will go stale, the cookies will stay soft.  When the bread gets hard, switch it out for a new slice.  Voila!
