Ooey gooey goodness!

I finally took the time to make some chocolate chip cookies from scratch! Leo was napping, and it was much faster than I thought.
Iused a recipe from Bakerella:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt with a wire whisk and set aside.
  • With a mixer, beat butter and both sugars until well blended.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • Add flour mixture in two additions until combined.
  • Stir in 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips.
  • Use a mini ice cream scoop to drop cookie dough on a parchment covered cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. (I used two regular spoon to drop some batter on the sheet, I dont like perfectly round cookies, and I dont have a mini ice cream scoop)
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Tip: About half way through baking, sprinkle reserved chips on top of cookies. This is just to make them prettier so, some of the chips are seen on top. (I personally just put some extra sprinkles on top before baking and they ended up looking the same. I hate taking cookies out half way through)
It makes about three dozen, maybe a little more, but I ate some cookie dough and some cookies after baking.
