Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made! Enjoy!

1 c butter or marg
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 t vanilla
1 egg
2-1/4 c flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1-2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat over to 375. Mix marg, sugars, vanilla and egg.  Add baking soda and salt.  Add flour, mix well.  stir in chocolate chips (and nuts if you'd like).  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 7-8 minutes.

**The trick to amazing chocolate chip cookies is not overbaking them.  I take mine out before they turn brown, right before they look done.  That way, they are nice and soft!

**With this recipe, cookies are amazing right away, but they don't stay fresh much more than 4 days (if they last that long) so I suggest freezing any that you don't think will get eaten right away.  Or maybe freeze them so you don't eat them all right away.

**With ministry, you always need something quick to make for last minute surprises.  I usually make several batched of this recipe and use a cookie dough scoop to scoop dough into a tupperware and then I freeze it.  That way, it's easy to take out when frozen, (it's impossible to scoop frozen dough) and you can make a few at a time so they're fresh when you want them!  Or, if you're like me, you can just pop some cookie dough whenever you get the craving!

**These make a wonderful dessert served HOT with a scoop of ice cream.  Who wouldn't love that?
