Magnolia Table Chocolate Chip Cookie

I have not posted for a while.  I left for about a week to go visit family at home.  I brought my laptop with me, but did not end up turning it on for the entire time.  That is a sign of a good, fun filled week.

Unfortunately, I think that was my last vacation until Christmas.  I may end up taking a couple of weekend trips, but that is it.

Going home was lots of fun.  We want kayaking, saw a couple of plays, and went to a natural science museum.  I also hung out with my family.  The time flew.

We saw a play called the Foreigner.  It was really funny.  One of the actors was so great.  He was playing a character called Charlie.  He has such great expression.  He had to act out a scene where he was pretending to be possessed, and he did an amazing job.

I made these cookies a few weeks ago for a going away party.  They were very yummy and popular.  I found this chocolate chip cookie recipe on a blog called The Kitchen.  I made it as directed.

The ingredients are 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1 heaping teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 8 tablespoons butter, 2 cups packed brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and 1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips.

I creamed together the butter and brown sugar for a few minutes.

I creamed in the eggs one at a time.  I then creamed in the vanilla extract.

I mixed in the baking soda, salt, and flour until the flour was fully incorporated.  

I mixed in the chocolate chips.

Each cookie consisted of 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter.  I placed the dough mounds about two each from one another on a baking sheet lined with a baking mat. 

I baked the cookies for about 10 to 11 minutes at 350 degrees.  

I let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the pan before removing them to a wire rack to continue to cool.

These were scrumptious cookies.  They were sweet and buttery.

They had a caramelized, golden flavor.  The texture was tender and soft.  The edges were a little crisp.

They were chewy and toothsome.  They were really tasty.

The chocolate was creamy and gooey.  

Chocolate chip cookies are so simple, but a good cookie is so satisfying and decadent too.  This is a stellar recipe.

I give this recipe two thumbs up.  I ate more of them then I should have.  They were popular at the party as well.

They had a great texture and flavor.  I plan on using this recipe again.
