…are in order, as it is the Christmas season!  Last year, Food Network Magazine did this wonderful segment, 50 Holiday Cookies, in which they gave several great base recipes along with variations.  Why this has been hiding on my bookshelf, unused, for a year is beyond me!  Well, this weekend, we made their classic chocolate chip cookies and they are absolutely fantastic (and easy!)!

For these chocolatey, gooey cookies you need:

  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy.  Then, beat in the vanilla and eggs.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda.  Stir it into the butter mixture.  Add the chocolate chips and pop the dough into the fridge for half an hour.

Roll the dough into balls and bake them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment for 8-12 minutes at 350.

Let the cookies cool for just a few minutes on a rack.

Grab a handful of delicious cookies and kick your holiday season off right!

These are honestly the most perfect chocolate chip cookies you can make!  They are both crispy and gooey as well as sweet and salty.   These are an absolutely wonderful holiday treat and they really could not be any easier!
