Labeling foods as “good” or “bad” or using any other system to moralize foods or eating behaviors does nothing but warp relationships with food and create issues. Cookies are neither good nor bad; they are just cookies. Enjoy them, stop eating when you have had enough, and know you can have more later if you feel like it.
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 1/4 cups white flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 sticks butter
- 12 oz. chocolate chips
- Mix sugars, flour, and baking soda together in a bowl.
- Add the eggs, but do not mix yet.
- Pour the vanilla on top of the eggs. Now mix.
- Add the butter and mix. At this point, you may need to abandon the utensils and mix with your hands.
- If the dough seems too wet, add additional flour as needed.
- Add chocolate chips and mix. Semi-sweet, milk, white, dark, or a combination of said chocolates works well.
- Place balls of dough on greased cookie sheets and bake at 325 until edges of cookies brown.
