For the forth of July I am heading to Colorado for about a week, then to Ohio for a few more days. I am excited to relax and clear my mind in Colorado before the next journey appears. Before my adventures start I wanted to be sure to have one last blog, since it may be awhile until I have a chance to cook again. Though, hopefully I will be able to cook in Colorado a few times, if I’m lucky :).
*I always use mini semi-sweet chocolate chips as opposed to regular because the mini chips evenly distribute throughout the cookie and give the cookie a nice sweet taste while not overpowering it with too much sweetness like the regular chips would.
Chocolate Chip Cookie
- 1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
- 1 t baking soda
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 butter, room temp
- 1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar
- 6 T Granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 1 c semisweet mini chocolate chips
Position a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or grease with crisco. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and beat on low speed until well blended. Slowly add the dry ingredients and beat low speed just until incorporated. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets spaced 2 in. apart. Bake the cookies until the edges are lightly browned. About 11 minutes.
