Chocolate Chip Cookies

I think everyone has their favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, whether it's their grandmother's recipe or the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip package.

I happen to like this one very much. It makes a great cookie and is simple to prepare. There are so many variations for that single cookie that I rarely repeat the same recipe, but my family enjoys this recipe so much that I find myself making it over and over!

Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes: about 30

1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c sugar
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 large egg
1/4 t vanilla extract
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 c semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375F.

2. Cream the butter, sugars, baking soda, and salt together. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Add the flour until it just makes a dough. Stir in the chocolate chips and if desired, 1/2 cup walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, whichever you prefer.

3. Roll pieces of dough into roughly the same size and place on ungreased cookie sheets or you can use baking paper. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are just turning light brown. Cool on sheets for 2 minutes and then move them to cooling racks to cool completely.
