There are tons of cookie recipes out there but the Chocolate Chip Cookie is the gold standard. This recipe is straight out of the kitchen aid mixer recipe book and it was the first masterpiece I made using one of my favorite wedding presents. Sometimes my husband and I don’t even get to baking the cookies because the dough is SO GOOD!! Warning: you will get a bellyache if all you eat for dinner is a fist full of cookie dough….
What is your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!? Any variations that we need to try?
1 cup granulated sugar
1cup of butter
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all purpose flour
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
