Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have been always there in pictures or in shops but the idea of making these never crossed my mind! I was going through Hershey's semi-sweet choc. chips (12 oz) packet for details where this recipe was printed, I immediately thought of baking these. I did bake cookies for the first time, and they were really good, my kids liked the taste!

Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients :
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks (200gms/1 cup) butter at room temp.
3/4th cup granulated sugar
3/4th cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
2 cups(12 oz) Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method :
Preheat the oven to 375 deg. F. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt. In another bowl beat the butter, sugars,vanilla essence with an electric beater till creamy. Add eggs one by one while still beating. Mix the flour spoon by spoon. In the end, stir the chocolate chips.
Drop the mixture with the aid of a round spoon, on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for ten minutes or until the sides are browned. Do not worry if the center top looks mushy. Cool it slighlty and take it off the sheet, cool it on wire racks, it shall turn crispy. Store in air-tight container. (Makes approx 5 dozens)

Tip : If you do not want to make the above quantity at one go, you may bake few cookies and store the cookies batter in deep freezer in a zip-lock bag, ensure to press out any air from it, use it within two weeks. OR Take only half the ingredients to prepare lesser amount.

All those of you who have loved cookies, should at least once, give this Cookie a try.
Yum-Yum cookie.
