There are two kinds of people in the world:
those who love chocolate, and communists.

Today I'm participating in Kelly's Korner with "Show Us Your Life." This week's topic is my favorite dessert recipe.

Now I may not be a fancy baker like Casey but I do have one, uncomplicated favorite that is made any time a dessert is in order. There are lots of specialty cookies and desserts out there but nothing gets eaten more than chocolate chip cookies.

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
From my grandma's long lost French relative Nesslay Tulhoos

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (I usually do 2 1/2 cups, my mom does less)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12 oz. pkg.) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375° F.

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 chocolate cips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Just nothing better than good ol' chocolate chip cookies! I have several great dessert recipes but my 'go to in case of emergency' recipe is called "Jiffy Cookies" -- or No Bake Cookies. Either way it only takes 5 minutes to get your chocolate fix when you don't have time to bake. :-)

There is nothing more comforting that some homemade chocolate chip cookies and milk!
