The best cookies ever

Sadly I can’t take credit for these chocolate chip beauties. They are Toll House’s original cookie recipe. They are soft and chewy in the middle with crisp edges, the perfect cookie. However, I did grow up making and eating them and I wanted to share them with you. It’s foolproof.

2 ¼ cups plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp salt
¾ cup butter
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 ½ cups chocolate chips

Pre-heat the oven to 180°. Cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and add the vanilla. Add the sifted dry ingredients and mix well until thoroughly combined. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop teaspoonfuls of the batter onto greaseproof paper, spaced well apart. Pat them down a little if you like. Bake in the centre of the oven for around 10 min or until golden brown. Let them cool on the baking sheet for couple of minutes before moving them to wire racks to cool completely. Eat a few while they’re still warm – mmm, yummy!
