Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe comes from Keeping Up with the Joneses. I've made tons of different recipes for Chocolate Chip Cookies over the years. They've all been pretty good, but I'm still looking for "the one". What attracted me to this recipe was the size of the cookie. I was looking for a bigger cookie to make and these were the perfect size. They were light, moist and oh so sweet. Two thumbs up in my book!

3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups flour, plus 2 Tbsp
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 (12 oz) package of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until blended.

Combine flour, soda, and salt in a small bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in morsels. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-covered cookie sheets. Note that the mixture is so moist and gooey that it can't be shaped into perfect balls, but it doesn't matter, just drop them with a spoon as best you can :)

Bake at 350° for 8 to 14 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. For me, these were perfect at 12 minutes!

Total Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 4-5 dozen, depending on size
