In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week, (yes this is a real thing, I don’t know who thought of it but when I find out I am going to kiss them right on the mouth!) I decided to share my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!
These don’t last long in our house and I can almost guarantee that wont last long in yours either! I can also almost guarantee that if I don’t share some of these with my dad this time I wont live to taste another warm gooey CCC again! Oh and side note, apparently I am now abbreviating chocolate chip cookie (CCC) because it takes too long to type! 🙂
Warning: These cookies are so delicious, it makes people mad!
Now on to the recipe…
2/3 cup (1 1/3 sticks) butter, room temp
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg, room temp
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
course sea salt for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla until smooth.
Slowly mix in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.
Use a large spoon and scoop about 1 ounce of the cookie dough into your hand form into a ball and place on a ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with course ground sea salt.
Bake for 10-11 min. Let cool on a wire cooling rack.
