One of my favorite things is baking and seeing my husband come into the kitchen being sooooo excited about what I’m making. This is one dessert that I make more than anything. My hubby would rather have homemade chocolate chip cookies over any other dessert. Cookies and milk the american classic, what better snack can you have and not feel too guilty?

I use to not be a chocolate chip cookie lover until I made these. I have to eat them when their hot and right out of the oven, that’s the best time to eat them.

I have to give my hubby credit for taking the picture while I mixed everything together.

Fit you mixer with the paddle attachment and add sugar, brown sugar and the cubed butter. Cream together until well blended and fluffily.

Add eggs, one at a time. Then add your vanilla and beat for a minute or two until well incorporated.

Mix together flour, baking power, baking soda and salt in separate bowl. Add dry ingredients in batches while mixer is on low, mixing well in-between.

Add small amounts of the dry ingredients at a time or this will happen. Ooops!

Look at all that goodness!!!

Add chocolate chips and stir with spatula until evenly distributed. Dip out 1/4 of batter onto plastic wrap and wrap tightly into a log. Refrigerate overnight for best results. Bake for approx. 9 Р10 mins. depending on how big you make your cookies.

Don’t over bake. Take them out of the oven when they look like they are browning. They will brown even more after you take them out of the oven.

I don’t bake all my cookies all at once. The dough will keep in the refrigerator for 5 – 7 days. I wrap the dough in small batches in plastic wrap and bake however many we want each night. That way their always warm and gooey!

Bake some of these cookie this weekend and share with your neighbor, cookies always brings a smile.

{NOTE: I now use MINI Chocolate Chips. The pictures shows regular chips. We have found that we like the mini much better than the regular chips.}
