Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

So, I know this post features a fairly lofty title, but these cookies turned out perfectly. I've been searching for a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I know will work - every time. And here it is. If you're a person who doesn't like chewy-in-the-middle, melt-in-your-mouth, pee-your-pants-a-little-because-you're-so-happy cookies, then you probably won't like these. The rest of you will.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever
(adapted from recipe at

-3/4 cup white sugar
-1 cup brown sugar
-1 cup butter, room temperature
-1 tbsp vanilla (use the real stuff)
-2 eggs
-3 cups flour
-3/4 tsp baking soda
-3/4 tsp salt
-1 bag milk chocolate chocolate chips (the best are the Guittard brand - they are HUGE chunks of
chocolatey goodness)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter & sugars until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
2. Add eggs one at a time, then the vanilla, beating thoroughly after each addition.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt until evenly combined. Add gradually to creamed mixture while mixing.
4. Stir in chocolate chips.
5. Roll into balls and place on cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes & move onto cooling rack.

Eat warm, cold, in the rain, in the sunshine, in bed late at night, standing up, sitting down - you're not going to want to stop.
