Quick & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is the chocolate chip cookie recipe for when you want a chocolate chip cookie now! Seriously, they are ready in less than 30 minutes. That's less time than it would take to run to the store to buy some.  Preheat the oven, melt some butter, crack some eggs and put on your favorite sitcom or sit with your favorite book while you let the delicious, comforting aroma waft through your kitchen. Better get a napkin for that drool . . . and a glass of milk for when the timer dings :)


1 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 bag or 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Melt butter either in a saucepan or in microwave. Add to sugars in mixing bowl. Whisk until no lumps remain. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Once mixture has cooled, add the egg and vanilla and mix until blended. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix just until incorporated - it will appear almost soupy. Stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop dough onto cookie sheets, about 2" apart (I use a medium cookie scoop). Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until golden. Yield: 36
