As you may or may not know, today is probably one of my favorite days. This is because today celebrates one of my favorite things in life…

Chocolate Chip Cookies!

While I assume that any of you big chocolate chip cookie lovers probably have this classic cookie recipe memorized, here is my go-to recipe to bake up my favorite batch of cookies!

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
6 tbsp organic cane sugar
1/2 cup packed organic light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
3. In a Kitchen Aid stand mixer, beat together the butter, and both sugars until well combined. Now, add the vanilla extract and the egg, and continue to beat.
4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Now, add the chocolate chips and beat for just a few seconds!
5. Place spoonfuls of cookie dough on a lined baking sheet and place in the oven for 10-13 minutes.
6. Let cool, and enjoy!
