Jacks death stare...are you going to make cookies tonight? Are you!!!

So I came home from work tonight and started unloading the baking sheets/utensils from the dishwasher and notice Jack was up on the counter staring at me…then the Saveway Cookies…at me…then the Saveway Cookies.   I am not sure if he knew I wasn’t fully satisfied with the cookies I made the night before or if he indeed had one and decided they tasted like his cat food.  Anyway, I threw them out and then decided to make a new batch!

Two things to note…when making cookies make sure 1. THE BUTTER IS SOFTENED (I know I said this before, but it matters) and 2. DON’T OVER DO’IT ON THE FLOUR

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Mix in bowl and set aside:
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt (I used Hawaiian Sea Salt which adds a savory twist)

What I used

Beat in another bowl until creamy:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

Then add one at a time…
3/4 cups sugar (Trader Joe’s in Queen Anne)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed (Billington’s Light Brown Muscovado Sugar from the PCC in Fremont)
2 tsp vanilla extract (Frontier from the PCC in Fremont)
2 eggs

Nailed it!

Gradually add the flour, baking soda and salt mixture to the butter, sugar, vanilla and egg mixture while blending.

Stir in…
2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Then use a tablespoon to drop the cookie dough on lightly greased baking sheets (I use PAM)…DO NOT OVER GREASE as there is a touch more butter in this recipe.

Bake cookies for about 8-10 minutes until the edges of the cookies are brown.  I like my cookies crispy on the outside and soft and gooey in the middle- enjoy!

You may be wondering why I call these “Third Time is a Charm…Chocolate Chip Cookies” … well, I did attempt to make cookies a couple weeks back and they turned out as good as the Saveway cookies did.  Practice makes perfect!
