Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies!

My boys, hubby included, love chocolate chip cookies! I live in a home with three cookie monsters. I cook a batch of cookies and, if i don't hide them well, they'll be all gone in a day!

Thanks to the Cooking Bride for her baking tips and sharing a super yummy chocolate chip cookie recipe, my boys can't get enough!

¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup coursley chopped nuts, optional
1 bag (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugars and the butter.
Add vanilla and eggs and mix until just combined.
Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.
Using a wooden spoon, add in nuts if using and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, about two inches apart, onto a prepared cookie sheet.
Bake approximately 8-10 minutes or until edges look done, but centers are still soft. Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet about 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to continue cooling.

Makes about 4 dozen
