Everyone I know thinks they have the best chocolate chip cookie recipe. The thing about chocolate chip cookies, is that everybody likes them differently. Some people like them flat and crunchy, others like them fluffy like cake and some people like them in between. Then of course there is always the debate on whether you should add nuts. Well, I make them, like I enjoy them since I am the one baking. Therefore, my personal favorite is the one in between, without nuts, but if you like nuts, that is an easy fix. I also wanted to go above your basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and make them into ice cream sandwich cookies. YUM! Here you go with you cookie recipe. Add ice cream when you feel indulgent!
Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies (my opinion) with ice cream too!
1 C Sugar, 1 C brown sugar(dark or light), 1 C butter (room temp), 1 tsp. vanilla extra, 1 large egg, 2 1/4 C flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 package chocolate chips ( like dark, but use what you like), 1 C walnut or pecans( I wouldn’t, but your call)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Mix sugars, butter, egg and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in chips and nut(if using) – Mix by hand. It will seem crumbly but that okay.
Drop TBSP. full of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 min. until light brown around the edges. Cool slight on the cookie sheet to finish baking and remove after 5 min. Eat warm with milk or let cool where you can add the ice cream between layers of two cookies if you wish. Enjoy!
