These cookies are my third favourite thing in the world.
This is also the very first and only recipe I have ever mastered.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375
1/4 cup butter
Add gradually and beat until creamy:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Stir and sift in:
1 cup and 2 tablespoons sifted all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Drop the batter on to greased cookie sheets in teaspoon sizes and bake for about 10 minutes.
