Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick butter softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Beat buter, sugars, vanilla extract in a large bowl until creamy. Add egg and beat again. Gradually add the flour mixture until well combined. Mix in the chocolate chips with a spatula. Drop by a rounded tablespoon or an icecream scoop onto a baking sheet. Press down each cookie with a spoon to flatten it a little.

This is what it looks like before baking:

Preheat oven to 375 deg F. Bake for 10-11 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.

NOTE: You can use any kind of chocolate chips(bittersweet,white,butterscotch,milk etc..). If you like a nice crunch, you can add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts.

Makes around 30 cookies
