Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don't know how I found time to bake this weekend, between volunteering at Scotties and drinking Caesars in the lounge!!  Good times were had by all: spectators, athletes, volunteers and even mascots!  Anyways, I wanted to make some cookies for Nick and decided to dig out an old-school recipe; yah, you know the kind that someone's grandma typed on little recipe cards using a real, honest-to-goodness typewriter!! 

I love the way it says "Mix in the usual way for cookies"!!!  Must have been typed back in the day when gals were actually taught how to bake and knew how!  Not like today; I've heard of people googling how to boil an egg!  Anyways, that made me laugh.  And just for today, I'm going to break it down for those people who maybe are not familiar with making cookies in the usual way!!

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup regular sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375degrees.  In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. 

Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Add in flour, baking soda & salt.  Stir until blended.  Add chocolate chips and stir till evenly distributed.

Drop onto cookie sheets (either lined with baking paper - I WAS OUT! - or ungreased cookies sheets) and bake for about 11 minutes. 

Try to fight off kids while they are cooling on a rack.  It's their own fault if they burn their tiny tongues by sneaking cookies early, isn't it?

Bet you can't just eat one!
