Christmas cookies ( + recipe)

Christmas is just around the corner!

I thought it was a great time to get into the christmas spirit and do some baking, and I thought I wouldn’t be much of a host if I didn’t share this great chocolate chip cookie recipe. I’ve used it for years, usually to do round basic cookies, but since Im not a fan of xmas sugar cookies, I have used this recipe to do my own version.

Ingredients

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large egg
1 (12 ounce) package Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

  1. PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. For basic round cookies, drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. If you want to make cookie cutter versions, the best way to go is to drop all the mixture in a smaller bowl or into a baking paper sheet and put it in the fridge for half and hour. (This will cool the dough and make it easier to roll with a rolling pin and use the cookie cutters)
  3. BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Decorate with icing if you like.
  4. Make yourself some tea or cocoa and EAT!
