  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 11/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sift dry ingredients through a colander to separate the chocolate chips from other ingredients. Beat 1 cup of unsalted butter or margarine in a medium bowl. Beat sifted ingredients into butter until blended. In a small bowl, beat 1 egg with 1 tsp. vanilla. Mix beaten egg mixture into butter mixture until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop teaspoonfuls of batter, spaced well apart, onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
