19/ Chocolate Chip Cookies II: Thin

These have an almost caramel taste because of all the brown sugar and butter. Excellent for making ice cream 'wiches.

Beat until light and fluffy:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1¼ c. brown sugar, packed
  • ½ c. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt

Beat in:

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

Mix in gently until just uniform: 

  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 c. chocolate chips
  • 1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Scoop evenly onto cookie sheet (greased or a Silpat helpful as they can stick). Bake in 350° oven until golden brown and just barely set in middle. Cool several minutes before removing from pan. 

Use the Kerry Gold, 'nuff said.
