2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c butter
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pkg. (12oz.) swirly chocolate chips
These are classic chocolate chip cookies with a twist - swirly chips. For some reason, they impress the kids.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and brown sugar. When the mixture is nice an creamy, add vanilla and eggs.
Gradually add dry ingredients to make a stiff dough. Add chips.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet. Bake at 375°F for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown on the edges. Remove from sheet and allow to cool completely on racks.
Hint on technique: If you line your trays with baking parchment, you can just lift the parchment onto the rack and rip off a new sheet. And cleanup is as easy as waiting for the trays to cool and putting them away.
