The year is almost done. I cannot believe it, a statement that has been pretty consistent since Olivia has been born. This year has flown by. Things have happened. So many things and yet here we are as if I blinked and the year flew by my eyes.
Most people nowadays are planning the future. Thinking of what things they hope to accomplish in the year ahead. I am here thinking about cherishing today. Maybe tomorrow.
Most people are also probably looking to make their lives a bit more healthy. I could be posting salad recipes for you all but instead I have cookies. #sorryiamnotsorry
These are chocolate chip cookies. But they are really good chocolate chip cookies. AND they are really easy. Super easy. Easy enough to make every day. Not that you should. But you could.
All of the ingredients for these cookies you should have in your pantry. They don't take any refrigerating of the dough. Heck you don't even have to soften the butter. Just pop it in the microwave to melt and you are good to go.
Too be honest they are almost too simple and easy and QUICK. You could go from a cookie craving to a whole batch of baked cookies in under 30 minutes. Talk about self indulgence.
So think about today and these cookies. Bake some up and enjoy!
Everyday Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Keywords: bake cookie
Ingredients (12 cookies)
- 8 tablespoons of salted butter
- ½ cup white sugar
- ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1½ cups all purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter until just liquid, around 30 seconds. You can take the butter out when there is still a few solid chucks. Gently swish the bowl until it is completely melted.
Using a stand mixer or electric beaters, beat the butter with the sugars until creamy. Add the vanilla and the egg; beat on low speed until just incorporated.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until a ball of dough forms.
Add the chocolate chips and incorporate with your hands.
Roll the dough into 12 large dough balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes until the cookies look puffy and dry and just barely golden. Take them out even if they look like they're not done yet. Let them cool on the pan, as they will continue to cook.
