Paradise Chocolate Chip Cookies

Review by Lyndee

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 12 ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees .  In mixer, cream together butter and sugar. 

If I can make cookies in my 1975 Hamilton Beach hand me down mixer, anyone can do it.  Think it's time to upgrade?  I'm sure a new mixer would make all my baking much easier, but alas, it is not in the budget right now.  Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl  combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Gradually beat into butter/sugar mixture. Add chocolate chips and stir in. 

Spoon and drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes or until edges begin to turn golden brown.  The recipe said 375 degrees for 9 minutes but that was too long for our oven.  The second batch I did at 350 for 8 minutes and that was perfect.  I was using a dark cookie sheet and they say sometimes that makes a difference so just keep that in mind.  

These cookies are amazing! The recipe makes about 4 dozen small to medium size cookies.  I made a batch Friday afternoon and by Sunday night, my husband the kids were asking me to make another because they had gobbled them all up.  Easy recipe to follow and most ingredients are in your cupboards.  These were a definite hit and will be made again and again at our house!
