Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yup... plain ol' chocolate chip cookies.

For Christmas weekend football, I had lots of different kinds of cookies out. Our friend Jeff was looking for the "chocolate chip cookies". I explained to him that chocolate chip cookies are everyday cookies and not special enough for the Christmas trays. He disagreed. Thankfully, Ericka had my back and totally agreed with me!

We ended up at Jeff's house for New Year's Day. Since he was disappointed in the cookie selection a few days before. I made a double batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies to bring to his house.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 C butter, softened
1/2 C sugar
1 C packed brown sugar
1 TBLS vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 C semi sweet chocolate chips
1 C chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375F.
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside
In a mixing bowl, beat butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs. Beat well.
Mix in flour mixture, until well combined.
Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop by spoonful onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake 9 - 11 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on wire rack.
Enjoy!

As it turns out, Jeff prefers his chocolate chip cookies without nuts. But he still put them in his private snack stash!

I had the same debate with a coworker. She made chocolate chip cookies for Christmas and I certainly wasn't going to turn one down! Yours look great!

It's funny how popular chocolate chip cookies are ALL the time with my coworkers. I could make the most gourmet, crazy dessert, but next to a plate of chocolate chip cookies it won't stand a chance. :) Thanks for visiting my blog, by the way!

Those look awesome, chocolate chip cookies rule. I disagree though, chocolate chip cookies are definitely festive enough for any holiday. ;)
