I’m not a baker not by any means, but my kids love to bake and to eat baked goods. So when Natasha from Houseful of Nicholes asked me to join her “Cookie Hop” I joined with no problems. I knew that the recipe I picked had to be easy and yummy. So Chocolate Chip Christmas cookies it was.
Dereon enjoyed making the cookies I was really only around to help him if need be and to take pictures. We made the cookies while Chance was sleep to avoid him interrupting us. LOL.
To make these cookies “Christmas” ready we used Christmas colored Chocolate chips that were red and green. They didn’t look so bright once they were done baking but when you take a bite out of them you can see the color which is a cute reminder of the Holidays.
1 stick of softened butter
3/4 cup light or dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
1 cup of flour
1 cup chocolate chips (any kind your prefer or have on hand)
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a large bowl with a hand mixer mix together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla to the butter/sugar mixture and mix.
Stir in the flour, salt, and the chocolate chips just until combined.
Scoop into mounds about 2 TBSP each onto ungreased cookie sheets
Bake at 350ºF until brown
Let the cookies cool.
