  • 1-1/2 sticks butter, softened
  • ¾ cups brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

  3. Add eggs and vanilla, and stir.
  4. Add dry ingredients, and stir until well mixed.

  7. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  8. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove them to a cooling rack.
  9. Enjoy, with a glass of milk (or eggnog, for a seasonally appropriate treat)!
