Yes, I know what you’re going to say. Mackenzie, aren’t you trying to be more healthy this year? Aren’t you trying to exercise and stay fit? Aren’t you trying to stay away from such things like cookies?
Yes, yes I am. But…I had promised my husband that I would make chocolate chip cookies to have on Christmas. That was the plan, except I got sick. So, to make up for the lack of cookies a few weeks ago, I made them for my hubby now.
What’re you going to do, right?
So enjoy. They are yummy, and that’s all that needs to be said.
I’m going to go find my yoga mat now…
Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour (I used wheat flour, but either is fine)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
