Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup softened margarine (2 sticks)
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 2 medium eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2-1/4 cups flour
- 1 cup chocolate chips (about 1/2 of a 12 ounce bag)
First get out your favorite big mixing bowl. Put the soft margarine in it, or you can soften the margarine in the microwave, if it is hard from the fridge. Measure the sugars into the bowl with the soft margarine. Use a whisk or large spoon to mix the sugar and margarine together until it is soft, smooth and fluffy. Add the eggs. Beat the mixture until it emulsifies into a smooth satiny batter. Add the vanilla and salt; mix well. Now sprinkle in the baking soda, and dump in the flour. Use a big spoon to stir it all up to a nice smooth dough. Add the chocolate chips. Stir again.
Drop the cookie dough by rounded spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake them at 350ï¿½ for 10 minutes. They will be a light golden brown, and have an incredibly enticing aroma. Transfer the cookies to a spread out dish cloth to cool. Bake another batch. This recipe makes about 4 or 5 dozen cookies, depending on how big you make them. They have fewer chocolate chips than other chocolate chip cookie recipes, but there are still enough chips to make them taste sinfully good.
