If there is a no fail cookie base this is it. Add your favorite chocolate chips and let the good times roll.
My only change is to use white sugar and molasses instead of half brown sugar and half white sugar.
Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
- 1 cup (2 sticks, 250 ml) butter
- 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) sugar
- 1 Tbsp (15 ml) molasses
- 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/4 cups (550 ml) flour
- 1 tsp (5 ml) baking soda
- 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
- 2 cups (500 ml) chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C) if your baking the cookies now.
Beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the extract and molasses then beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the dry ingredients until well mixed then fold in the chocolate chips.
I usually use my electric mixer and then mix by hand when I add the chips. Use a scoop to make even sized cookies. Do not grease the cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes until done or freeze on sheet before wrapping.
Freezing Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies
These can be frozen before or after baking.
If you freeze them before baking than shape and freeze them right away, if the dough sits in the fridge it will dry out and become kind of crumbly and hard to freeze.
If your baking them first be sure to let the cookies cool completely before freezing.
