Cookie Making | what sarah knows

You know what is scary… How easy it is to make cookies even if you really don’t have a lot in your pantry.

Seriously – it doesn’t take a lot of have some delicious, warm, homemade cookies in about 30 minutes. Terrifying! Well, last Saturday half way through watching the movie Hook while enjoying some red wine, James and I knew we needed some cookies. This is my adapted cookie recipe with what I had in my pantry. Like the Sunday Rule – calories don’t count at Christmas – so enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups of chocolate chips (I had Ghirardelli in the pantry)
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed (I used dark brown)
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon course sea salt

Heat oven to 375ºF.

Stir flour with baking soda and salt; set aside.

In large mixing bowl, beat butter with sugar and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy and lightened in color. Add eggs and vanilla, one at a time. Mix on low speed until incorporated. Gradually blend dry mixture into creamed mixture.  Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for about 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.

*notes* If you have the time or inclination this little step can make the cookies even better! Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for a minimum of 2 hours and up to 3 days.
