I get on a plane in under 12 hours, so of course, I'm baking.
I use the standard chocolate chip cookie recipe off the bag...only not quite.
2 sticks BUTTER. Not margarine
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
2 t. vanilla
2 eggs for certain
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
2 c. flour
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
a bit of kosher salt
Preheat oven to 375.
Cream the butter and sugar, then add the vanilla and eggs.
Mix in the salt and baking soda, then the flour just a bit.
Mix in the chocolate chips.
Line a half sheet pan w/ parchment (or in my case, reusable parchment sheets) and drop big dollops of the dough on the sheet, then spread it out. It will ALMOST fill the tray. Try to get everything the same height so it will bake evenly.
Sprinkle some kosher salt over the top--probably only a 1/4 teaspoon.
Bake about 20 minutes, or until browned and just slightly firm. It may get a little crispy around the edges-that's deliciously fine.
Let cool before cutting. Yum!
