Ellen’s Famous Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

In part four of TheHome.com in the Kitchen, Ellen shows you how to make her famous chocolate chip cookies!

Preheat oven to 330 to 350 degrees (depending on how hot your ovens run!)

I usually put it in this order:

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

Cinnamon – at least 1 ½ tsp

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar, packed

2 eggs

1 tsp. baking soda

1 ½ tsp. vanilla

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

2 ++ cups chocolate chips

Place on cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes. I check to be sure they are light brown on the edges. We don’t like them well done! Let sit for 20-30 seconds so you can remove from the pan easily.

Place on wire racks to cool or eat immediately with milk in a glass from the freezer!!!

(HINT: I have kept cookie dough in the refrigerator overnight to have a second fresh batch of cookies the next day!)
