Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are a family favorite. We have been famous for our hot-out-of-the-oven cookies for 2 generations. All of our friends would come to our house when we were growing up and beg for these cookies. Now my kids do the same. Every time I make these babies my kids proudly announce that their mom makes the BEST cookies EVER! I can whip these cookies out in 15 minutes from start to finish. With the help of a stand mixer and a cookie scoop you can have it down just as fast.-BarbaraJo

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter (the real thing) softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla (I use the real Mexican vanilla...hey, that's one advantage of living in Mexico. It enhances the flavor of the cookies and it's dirt cheap!)
2 1/4 cups flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips ( I use Toll House)

Cream the butter and sugars together. Add one egg at a time until well combined. Add dry ingredients. Don't over mix.  Stir in chocolate chips. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Best if eaten warm with a cold glass of milk.
**Note: you can freeze the cookie dough in small balls in a ZipLock bag and pull them out anytime you want hot cookies. They bake frozen just fine.
