Classic #Chocolate Chip #Cookie #Recipe

Today is a special day. For you, a day where you get a super delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe. For me, a day to remember the birthday of my most favorite guy in the whole world; my Dad.

My Dad would make these cookies quite alot when I was little. He was certainly the cookie connoiser in the house, and I loved watching him work.

The big orange mixing bowl
The soft margarine
Electric mixer....and if you were lucky enough, he'd share a beater with you

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (soft)
1 egg
dash of vanilla
2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350F

Mix your dry ingredients, then work in your butter, egg and vanilla with an electric mixer. Mix in the chocolate chips and your batter is ready to go.

Scoop by the tablespoonful onto your cookie sheet, or you can use a cookie scoop like I do.

Bake for 11mins, no less! 11 minutes exactly.

Remove from the oven and let cool on the cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes, then move to a wire rack and cool completely.

These cookies spread out a little and become thin and crispy...just the way my Dad would make them!

Enjoy {and Happy Birthday, pops!}
