1 cup and 2 Tbsp All-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
1/2 packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup or package of your favorite chocolate (chopped up)
(optional to add nuts)
Preheat the oven to 375*F.
If your chocolate isn't already in small pieces, chop it up until it's about the size of chocolate chips.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract in a separate, large mixing bowl until creamy, and then beat in egg. Slowly add flour mixture into the large mixing bowl and mix well. Fold in chocolate and optional nuts.
Drop spoonfuls of cookie mix on a greased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Let cool for at least 2 minutes on sheet or wire rack.
*You can also use this variation for a full pan cookie, just bake for 12-15 minutes.*
They were so warm and delicious, they fell apart in my mouth! So be careful if dunking in milk (like my hubby did)!
