classic cookies

Dreary weather means grumpy souls at work and there is nothing like a cookie (and snibbling at the raw dough) to make you smile! I got the recipe from the Ben & Jerry's recipe book, scrumptious!
Recipe makes about 24
1 cup (226g) butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup soft light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups & 2 tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
150g dark chocolate - roughly cut into chunks
1. Preheat oven to 175C/350F & line baking sheets with baking parchment
2. Beat butter and both sugars in a large bowl until light and fluffy
3. Add the eggs one at a time, and then the vanilla. Mix well to incorporate
4. Sift the flour, salt and baking soda into another bowl
5. Add the dry ingredients to the batter and mix well
6. Stir in the chocolate
7. Drop small scoops of the dough onto the trays (walnut sized blobs gave nice sized cookies)
8. Bake until the centers are still slightly soft to the touch - about 11 minutes
9. Let the cookies cool on the baking tray for a few minutes then transfer to cooling racks...then pop into a tin and cheer up your work mates! yummy yum yum!
