Refilling the Cookie Jar

When the cold wind is howling outside there is nothing better than cranking up the oven and baking something yummy.  Tonight's dessert was an easy choice- the Chef loves cookies but other sweets not so much, so just for him......

Original Toll House Cookies

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar,  packed
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
12 oz package chocolate chips (I used half milk and half semi-sweet)

Combine flour, baking soda and salt, set aside. Beat butter with mixer until fluffy. Add sugars and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs. Add dry indredients. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degree 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are just browning. Cool on rack.

Chocolate chip cookies remind me of being a kid. You can eat em while they're hot and gooey, dip em in your glass of milk, and be a kid again.
