Not-So-Weekly Recipe

One of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes I've made.  Ever.  I think it was the Smart Balance.  And I might have added a bit too much baking soda...

(Leftover Halloween Candy) Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup softened butter (if you use Smart Balance butter get the kind for baking, not the other kind...the other kind ruins whatever you bake...just a note)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 - 2 cups chocolate chips (or 10 mini bags of Hershey's Kissables left over from Halloween that you had to promise to use up in cookies just so your husband wouldn't eat them all)


1.  Hand mix butter and sugars until creamy.
2.  Add in eggs and vanilla until combined.  
3.  Slowly stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.  Once dough is formed, mix in chocolate chips.
4.  Refrigerate for at least a half hour.  (If you refrigerate longer, you might want to cover the dough.)  
5.  Drop tablespoon-sized balls onto cookie sheet.  
6.  Bake at 375* for 10 minutes.  
7.  Let cookies sit on the sheet for a minute or two once out of oven.  Then cool completely on wire rack.
