  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°. In mixing bowl, using electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix to combine.

Using a 1-inch round scoop, drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes but keep an eye on them.
