Chocolate Chip Cookies

My most favorite thing to bake is chocolate chip cookies, so I thought I would share my recipe. It is an alteration of a Betty Crocker recipe and it goes like this:

3/4c granulated sugar
3/4c brown sugar
1 c stick margarine, softened
1 egg
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375. Mix sugars, margarine and egg. Stir in flour, soda and salt (batter will be stiff.) Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonful (you know, the ones you eat with - I actually use my handy-dandy Pampered Chef little melon baller scooper thing so they are uniform and really nice sized) onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 7 minutes - they should not quite be brown on the edges, but another minute would brown them. Take them out before they brown. Put a dish towel on your counter and drop your cookie sheet from a height of 6". Do this a couple times. This makes them better. Because they are a little doughy, wait until they cool a bit before eating.

These are SUPER soft and tasty. Hope you enjoy!
