Chocolate Chip Cookies...mmm..
The kidlets and I made chocolate chip cookies today. They are baking in the oven right now. I have the best choco chip cookie recipe. I think aunt brammy gave it to me when she lived in G. I tweaked it a bit, and they turn out great almost everytime. I remember now why i used to always use butter instead of margarine. The dough is so much nicer, and it makes such a better cookie. Good thing I stocked up at Christmas time.

Here is the recipe, enjoy.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 c butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2- 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c chopped nuts (optional)
1 pkg (12 oz) milk chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375°. Mix sugars, butter, vanilla, and egg. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. (dough will be stiff) Stir in nuts and chips. Drop by rounded tsp about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly and remove from cookie sheet.
I don't use the nuts. Neither of my kids care for them that way.
happy baking

Oh, Steve's favorite, will have to give it a family always says they don't like nuts in things, but when I make them with and without, they eat the 'with' batch first..........ugh
