Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almost every time I make these cookies, I get raving compliments and people ask for the recipe. Which is quite funny since it is literally on the back of the bag of every single bag of chocolate chips. I do make a couple adaptations, most notably adding oatmeal, but even if I were to make the recipe exactly as is, they'd be delicious. And it's such a simple recipe because you basically plop all the ingredients in the bowl and mix!

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted from recipe on bag of chocolate chips

Preheat oven 350ยบ

In an electric mixing bowl, add:
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Mix on medium speed until all ingredients are incorporated.

1 1/2 cups oatmeal
half or three-quarters bag of chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts [optional]

Mix until these are evenly distributed.

Spoon onto greased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes, depending on the size of your cookie. (Also, this makes a mean cookie cake. Just pile all the cookie batter on a large cookie sheet so that it forms a rough circle. Bake for ~45 minutes or until the middle is set. Then decorate as desired.)

Eat up!
