The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
DirectionsPreheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat.
With an electric mixer, cream the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt with a wire whisk.
Stir flour into butter mixture, just until combined.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded generous tablespoon-size balls of dough onto the baking sheets, spaced 3 inches apart.
These will spread out quite a bit.
Bake for about 12 minutes, until golden brown and mostly set in the center.
Place the baking sheet on a wire rack to cool.
These are very fragile when warm, so let them cool for at least 5 minutes on the baking sheet before gently moving them to the wire rack to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
These also freeze well, sealed in freezer bags.
