"Noncooks think it's silly to invest two hours' work in two minutes' enjoyment; but if cooking is evanescent, well, so is the ballet." - Julia Child

Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe originated from a recipe found on allrecipes.com. We tweaked it a bit, and lo and behold, tastes just like cookies at Mrs. Fields. This makes about 2 dozen cookies.

1/2 cup salted butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 cups dark chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie sheets with oil or cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, using a hand mixer at the lowest speed, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla .Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, and put the cookie balls onto the prepared cookie sheets 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
