And cookie is for me! At least, that’s what my hero always said. He might have been a blue blob of unrecognizable origin, but I loved me some cookie monster growing up. Cookies are my weakness. I can say no to chocolate cake, brownies, candy bars, etc., but not to a homemade cookie. Although we didn’t cook a lot in our house growing up, we did always make fresh cookies from scratch. After years of developing the perfect recipe, here is my offering.

Preheat oven to 315F

1 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Melted Butter
1/2 C. White Sugar

Cream together.

1 Egg
1 Egg Yolk
2 t. Vanilla

Mix into butter mixture.

2 1/2 C. Flour
1/2 t. Baking Soda
1/2 t. Baking Powder

Sift and add half to butter mixture. Mix and add 2nd half. Mix again.

1 1/2 C. Chocolate Chips

Stir in. Bake on Parchment lined cookie sheets for 10-18 min. depending on desired cookie size.

Enjoy and never eat a store bought cookie again!!!
