chocolate chipped

We rarely had chocolate cookies at home when I was growing up.  My dad doesn't like them.  I've never understood how that's possible, but it's true. More often than not, my grandma had them in her freezer.  She also usually had an angelfood cake on top of her fridge and a chicken in her skillet, but i'm losing focus here.

Anyway, it was at her house that I found my love for frozen chocolate chip cookies.  In my opinion, frozen chocolate chips cookies are one of life's cheap remedies for a bad day.

I spent the better part of last week waiting to find out if I had celiac.

I don't.

I thought the best way to celebrate would be with chocolate chip cookies.

chocolate chip cookies

3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a separate bowl mix flour, soda, and salt.  Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla.  On a low speed, slowly add flour mixture.  Add chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls onto parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake for about 11 minutes.
