My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

The boys and I are home today in observance of President's Day, so this was our morning activity.  Cooking is not really my thing.  I do it out of necessity and would rather sew on any given day.  However,  I do get the urge to bake every once in a while, so I thought I'd share my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

The Corelle plate is part of the same set we used growing up, so it's a testament to durability (and nostalgic 70s kitsch).

This recipe produces a buttery, not-too-sweet, chewy cookie.  Just a few notes though if you do decide to try it:
  • Try to use semi-sweet (or even dark) chocolate chips -- milk chocolate will make the cookies too sweet (IMHO); 
  • Make sure your butter and eggs come to room temperature;
  • I added 1/4 teaspoon baking powder just to give it a little lift (the original recipe produces a really chewy but flat cookie just using baking soda, but I like a little oomph in my cookie); and
  • Enjoy!
