Every weekend I try to bake sweet treats for the kids to put in their lunches. This past weekend the kids chose cookies which was awesome because this recipe is so simple that the kids made it themselves.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup of softened butter
- ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 large egg
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips of chocolate chunks which is what I used
- Coarse sea salt – optional to sprinkle on top after they come out of the oven
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking soda and the salt and then set aside.
- In a large bowl beat together the butter, sugars, vanilla extract and the vinegar until smooth. Beat in the egg just until combined.
- Then mix the dry ingredients (flour mixture) with your wet ingredients. Once combined add your chocolate chips
- Scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the cookie dough and drop them onto the lined baking sheet about 2-3 inches apart.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, they will look light brown around the edges and will look underdone until the edges are light brown.
- Remove from the oven and if you choose to, immediately sprinkle each cookie with a little sea salt.
- Cool for about 10 minutes before serving
