Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This is one of my favorite recipes to use when I'm baking cookies.



  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed or mix with a spoon until well blended. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips and/or nuts.
  3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
