bww - Christmas Cookies for Santa

Every Christmas since I can remember I have made chocolate chip cookies.  I have burned up several electric mixers in the process of trying to mix the dough and have scorched lots of cookies because I forgot to set the timer.

These pictures are from a few years ago when I was trying out a salted chocolate chunk cookie recipe. Some people loved them, but others craved the traditional favorite.

Here is the recipe I always use for chocolate chip cookies.

I started with the Original Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe and only made a few changes over the years.

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morselsinstead I use1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chips
I normally go by the recipe for the instructions.  You can click the link above to see the original recipe.  I do bake at 375 but slightly under the recommended time so they are soft and not crunchy.

The other tip to keeping the cookies soft is storing them in an air-tight container.  

Try sprinkling a little coarse sea salt on top of cookies right out of the oven for a sweet and salty treat.
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
