To make these chocolate chip cookies, I started by dumping some softened butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and an egg into a large mixing bowl.
I used an electric mixer to cream the ingredients together until smooth.
Then I added some all purpose flour, salt and baking soda to the bowl.
I continued mixing with the electric mixer until all of the ingredients were fully combined.
Then I added some semi-sweet chocolate chips to the bowl.
I stirred the chocolate chips into the cookie dough.
I rolled the cookie dough into balls approximately an inch and a half in diameter and dropped them onto a non stick baking sheet.
I placed the baking sheet in the oven and baked the cookies until they were golden brown all around the edges.
Then I removed them from the oven and left the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes before using a spatula to transfer them to some parchment paper on the counter to finish cooling off.
These chewy chocolate chip cookies are a delicious homemade treat.
