Chocolate Chip Cookies

Busy, Busy, Busy. Busy as a Bee.  I've got a lot going on, but that's okay! :) I've been working more hours, doing regular family stuff, and creating more so I can launch my Etsy store.  I tend to be more creative at night time, when everything is done and everyone is settled down and in bed. So, I've been going to bed really late trying to get everything done, luckily I go to bed really late anyway so it hasn't effected me at all. Right now I'm just creating journal cards that can be used for Project Life and any type of scrapbooking or crafting. I will be providing both a printable version and a digital version. It's just a LOT of work.  Eventually, which I'm working on too in bits and pieces right now, I will introduce some digital kits and digital elements and things. I tend to be ambitious and want to do everything at once…but I'm *trying* to just take it one thing at a time as to not stress myself out. We'll see how it goes!

Anyway! You want food? How about chocolate chip cookies? Yuuummmm! Who doesn't like a good chocolate chip cookie?  I haven't been making many sweets lately because depending what it is, I will sit there and eat it all myself. I have such a sweet tooth, but John has been dropping hints for a while as to how much he is craving something sweet. I figured cookies were safe, because I could freeze most of the them for a later date.

 I have many chocolate chip cookie recipes but this is my go to one.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside

In the bowl of a mixer, beat together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat in Vanilla and eggs until blended.  Stir in Chocolate chips. Drop dough in equal amounts onto prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from pans and cool completely.

These cookies freeze really well. They also taste amazing frozen. If you've never eaten a frozen cookie, I recommend you try it. It kind of defeats the whole "freeze and eat later" thing I intended for, but  they're delicious!
