Recipe by Jessie MacMillan
One of these days I'm going to lose my Kitchenaid recipe book for good, instead of just misplacing it as I so often do. This is my insurance that my reputation for fantastic chocolate chip cookies remains intact.

I have been sharing these cookies since I got the recipe in the paper cookbook that came with my Kitchenaid Mixer 20 years ago, now if someone ask for it I tell them to google "Kitchenaid chocolate chip recipe" it is best! I always use real butter, real vanilla and large eggs.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar (or 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses)
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Soften butter in the microwave. I microwave each stick of butter 15 seconds then rotate 180 degrees and microwave for another 15 seconds. Your oven will be different.
- Place sugars, butter, eggs, and vanilla in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater to mixer.
- Turn to Speed 2 and mix for 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed 4 and beat another 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl.
- Sift together baking soda, salt, and flour.
- Turn to Stir Speed. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture over about 2 minutes.
- Turn to Speed 2 and mix 30 seconds.
- Turn to Stir Speed and add chocolate chips, mixing for 15 seconds.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, longer if you prefer crunchy cookies.
- Let the cookies rest for 1 minute after removing from oven, then remove them and cool on wire racks. Allow the baking sheets to cool about 2 minutes before using them for the next batch.
