The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie

These are hands down the best chocolate chip cookies ever!  Well at least I think so and most everyone who has tried them tells me they are so good.

This is a crispy on the edges cookie with a chewy center, my favorite type of cookie.

I got this recipe from a professor during Brian and my seminary days.  That was about 20 years ago and it is still the most requested cookie recipe from my family.  I hope they become a family favorite for you too.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie

1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. kosher salt
12 oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the butter, sugars and egg until well combined.  Add the flour, soda, and salt mix until barely combined.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Spoon teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets for 12 -15 minutes or until light golden brown.  Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet and then transfer them to a cooling rack.
