Best Chocolate Chip Cookies


I haven't had many cravings since I've been pregnant, but one night not too long ago, I had the biggest hankering for some homemade chocolate chip cookies. I scoured each and every one of my cookbooks from Paula Deen to Ina Garden and could not find one single recipe for chocolate chip cookies! how is this possible??? After some tweaking to an old recipe, the photo above is how they turned out. I gave half of them away so I wouldn't eat every single one of them because they were literally the most amazing chocolate chip cookies I've ever had! I hope y'all will make these and enjoy them as much as we did!

Ingredients:
1 stick softened butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup grnaulated sugar
Cream these ingredients together...
Add in:

1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
splash of vanilla extract
Once above ingredients are incorporated, fold in:

1 cup chocolate chips

On a parchment lined baking sheet, take a heaping tablespoon of dough and place on pan, spacing dough balls a couple inches apart as these will spread as they bake. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake 10-12 minutes. They come out a beautiful light golden color and a deliciously chewy which I LOOOOOVE! I hope y'all enjoy!
