Chocolate Chip Cookies

I couldn't tell you what the first thing I learned to cook was. I honestly should owe any of my blog recipes to my dad. I learned by watching him. His cooking style was creative and resourceful. No measuring and use what you have. He hunted, fished, and made many yummy dinners for our family. There were never any runs to the grocery store to get something for a recipe (granted, it was 30 minutes from our house). He used what he had. Sure, there were some failed meals, but there were also some of my best meals.

My husband likes recipes. He likes things measured out, he likes to have a recipe. I told him he would make a better baker. Sometimes he gets nervous with my style of cooking that I have learned from my dad. Furthermore, I do not consider myself a baker. During the years in which one young girl would learn to cook, my mom and dad were very busy with my sister's diagnosis of cancer. Very understandable. But have vivid memories of making cookies with my mom and we did that all the way into high school when I was on swim team. I loved every minute of it.

I am not going to pretend I reinvented the chocolate chip wheel. That would be wildly inaccurate and unnecessary.


1 cup of butter, softened
3/4 granulated sugar
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 (12 ounce) bag of semi sweet chocolate chips


Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat until creamy. While beating, add one egg at a time to mixture until combined. Add baking soda and salt.

Then gradually flour. Occasionally depending on texture, you may need 1/4 cup more of flour.

Fold in chocolate chips. Then form into balls onto cookie sheets. Bake for 9 minutes and place on wire rack to cool.
