Satisfying Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
- 1/2 C. granulated sugar
- 1/2 C. firmly packed light brown sugar
- 8 Tbs. unsalted butter, cold
- 1 lg. egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 1/4 C. all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt or 1/2 tsp. flaky sea salt
- 1 1/2 C. semisweet chocolate chips (or however many you want)
Adjust oven rack so it's toward the top third of the oven and preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Beat the sugars and butters together until smooth. Mix in the egg, vanilla, and baking soda. Stir together the flour and salt, then mix them into the batter. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the cookie dough into the desired size onto your cookie sheets, keeping each cookie about 2 inches apart.
The baking time depends on the size of your cookies. For small cookies, bake for 14-16 minutes. For medium size, bake for 18 minutes, or until pale golden brown. For larger cookies, bake for 22-24 minutes or until pale golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
