12 Days of Christmas Treats: Chocolate Chip Cookies

     For Day Two, I thought I'd bring out an old favorite.  Everybody's Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies!  That's right.  Everybody's.  Because Everybody's Mom just used the recipe on the back of the package of chocolate chips.  She may have told you it was an old family recipe.  Do you remember those old Rice Krispie Treat commercials?  Yeah.  It's like that.  Once you've tried this recipe, you can totally call her outOr not, because if your Mom made you a boat load of chocolate chip cookies, is that really any way to show your appreciation?  Naughty.

Everybody's Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield:  Yield 5 dz cookie scoop size cookies

2 C Sifted Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 C Butter
1/2 C Sugar
3/4 C packed Brown Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
1 Egg
1 12-oz package Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

     Preheat oven to 375°.  Sift first 3 ingredients together and set aside.  Cream butter and sugars together until fluffy.  Add vanilla and egg, beat well.  Add sifted dry ingredients to creamed mixture, mix well.  Add chocolate chips, mix well.  Take a heaping Tbs of dough and roll into ball.  Place each ball 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake in a preheated oven 8-10 minutes.  Remove cookie sheet from oven and place cookies on cooling rack. 

When you make this recipe per instructions, rolling a Tbs of dough into a ball, it will yield about 3.5 dozen.

The kids can't get enough of these!  It's an old family recipe.

 Woohoo!  Cara made her vegan and gluten-free version!  They look fantastic!  Also, apparently, Santa is partial to these... Go check them out at Fork and Beans!
