Chocolate Chip Cookies:

– 1 cup packed brown sugar
– 2 large eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 3 cups all-purpose flour

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
3. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.
5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
6. Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
7. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
8. Bake in the preheated oven for 9-11 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
9. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes. Then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
