I've kept my eye out for a good chocolate chip cookie recipe, and this is one of the best I've found.

  • 1 C + 2 T flour
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 C (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 C packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 C granulated sugar
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C (6 oz. pkg.) chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375F.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheet for two minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely.
