Baby Bear's Chocolate Chip Cookies

(published in The Family Dinner as "Nana's Happy Chocolate Chip Cookies")



Cole and I made cookies together for the first time yesterday.Adam isn't a fan of "thick" chocolate chip cookies so he asked me to find a "thin and crispy" cookie recipe. I'm all for experimenting with cookies!

Preheat the oven to 350.

In a small bowl, mix:

12 ounces of good quality chocolate, chopped

2.5 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Set aside

In the bowl of your mixer, mix:

1.5 cups (3 sticks) of butter, room temp. (I chopped the butter up to make it easier to add and mix)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar

Mix until smooth and creamy. Next, vigourusly add

2 eggs

until well combined. Slowly mix in the chocolate mixture. Chill for 30 minutes.

When chilled, drop small balls onto a cookies sheet. They spread, so leave  a good amount of space between each cookie. Bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes. When done, cool on the cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes before moving to a baking rack. Allowing them to cool makes them eaiser to transfer and reduces the risk of broken cookies.
