Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've been away for quite a long time, but now I'm back and sharing my recipe for awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I recently purchased a KitchenAid mixer. I don't know how I survived this long without one. I love it and make almost everything with it.

My brother purchased me some awesome silicone cookie sheets for Christmas. He got them on QVC. I know I'm one of 300 people who have used them, but I have to add my two cents and say they are awesome. They were a bit stinky at first, but that smell did not carry over into the cookies. And I could care less if, down the road, they stain. That just adds flavor.

On to the recipe!*


1 cup granulated sugar (I used 3/4 cup granulated sugar)
1 cup brown sugar (I used 1 1/4 cup brown sugar)
1 cup butter or margarine, softened (i used unsalted butter)
2 eggs
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

Place sugars, butter, eggs, and vanilla in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater to mixer. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed 4 and beat about 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl.

Turn to Stir Speed. Gradually add baking soda, salt, and flour to sugar mixture and mix about 2 minutes. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 30 seconds. Stop mixer and scrape bowl. Add chocolate chips. Turn to Stir Speed and mix about 15 seconds.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake at 375* F for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from baking sheets immediately and cool on wire racks.
