Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chips Cookies

IMG_1536 copy

I have been in the mood to bake some cookies the last couple of weeks! And nothing is better than some chocolate chip cookies!

I was invited to a BBQ at T&K's and decided to bring them a care package of cookies!

These cookies are so yummy! You can't eat just one!!

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
(from marthastewart)
Makes about 3 dozen
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar (used a little less)
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

Yumm! They remind me of the most glorious chocolate chip cookies ever that I got to buy at the MN state fair this past weekend!
