A Homemade Christmas: Chocolate Chip Cookies

20131218-204849.jpg

Cookies are the staple of Christmas baking. They come in all shapes and sizes and use innumerable flavor combinations from Christmas spices to peanut butter and jelly.

Sometimes simple is best though and this is by far my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Soft and chewy and irresistible straight from the oven, they will make your friends want to be first on your Christmas list next year.

Bon appetit!

Recipe adapted from Gourmet
Makes 4 dozen cookies

3 cups Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda

10oz (400g) Dark Chocolate, broken into small pieces

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

3. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda.
4. Add flour mixture to eggs in stages and beat until just incorporated.
5. Stir in chocolate and scoop in heaped tablespoons onto lined baking sheets leaving space between each cookie because they will expand.
6. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden but not crispy.
