Chocolate Chip Cookies

Classic chocolate chip cookies are perfect for every occasion, or none at all! Recipe courtesy of Nielsen-Massey Vanillas and Renee Hartzler.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  Cup  butter, softened
  • 1 1/4  Cup  granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4  Cup  brown sugar
  • 1  Tablespoon  vanilla extract, such as Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla
  • eggs
  • 4  Cups  all-purpose flour
  • 2  Teaspoons  baking soda
  • 1 3/4  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1  Teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1  Teaspoon  cream of tartar
  • 12  Ounces  package semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs in large bowl. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and cream of tartar. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop with a #40 scoop (looks like a mini metal ice cream scoop) or a rounded measuring tablespoonful about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased insulated baking sheet. Bake until light brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cool slightly, then remove from baking sheet. Cool on wire rack.

Makes about 4 dozen crackly, chewy-crispy bakery-style cookies. They are wonderful!

Vanilla Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Vanilla Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
