I love chocolate chip cookies! They’re my favorite ones next to the chocolate chunk cookies with macadamia nuts, but they’re both essentially the same thing lol. This chocolate chip cookie has just the right amount of chocolate to it. It’s there to give enough of the chocolaty feel, but does not take too much away from the cookie itself. In short, it’s delicious! I got a little distracted while baking these and hence, the darker edges and base.

You can bake them according to your preference whether you want them chewy or firm. This is a very simple recipe and it is pretty quick too. You start by beating together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.

Until they all come together.

Yes, I’m not using my stand mixer for this J I just did not want to use my stand mixer. I don’t know what it was, but today was a hand mixer day! :D Soon I remembered how much of a mess these hand mixers can make lol. It was totally worth it though because I didn’t have to wash the big huge stand mixer bowl haha. Then add vanilla extract and an egg.

I used the Costco brand of vanilla extract for the cookies.

Once I run out of it, I’m going to try the Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract . I’m currently using Nielsen-Massey’s vanilla bean paste  and I love it! I can’t wait to try the extract. I wonder if it is going to taste any different. I guess I’ll have to try it out to find it :) Oh yes! Back to the recipe! Add in the flour and baking soda.

Continue to mix. Then, stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto a parchment paper on your baking sheet. Remember to leave enough room between them to allow for expansion.

Bake at 350F for 10 minutes or until browned around the edges. Cool and enjoy :)
