Recipe: Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies

If there’s one thing that stands out about my childhood, it’s my mother’s “Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies.” She was infamous among my friends and my brother’s friends when we were younger for making the greatest cookies in the world! Anyone who came to our house to visit would always help themselves to the treasures that filled our homemade ceramic cookie jar. These cookies are just the right amount of sweet and they are so soft, I’m sure you’ll fall in love, too!

Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Now, this is where my mom & I differ. She rolls the dough into balls that are a heaping teaspoon size, and I make mine about double that size. Depending on how big or small you make yours, the baking time & yield will be different.

Bake at 375 degrees F for about 7 to 9 minutes.

Cool on wire racks, then enjoy!
