Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a major sweet tooth and warm homemade chocolate chip cookies are a definite favorite of mine.  I decided that I was bored with the typical Toll House cookie recipe we use over and over again.  Also, I have fallen in love with my almond extract and want to find new things to use it in so I decided, if there ever was a recipe to use it in, this was it.

Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 1/4 cup flour
2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
1 bag of chocolate chips (I used half a bag of semi sweet and half a bag of milk chocolate)


Preheat the oven to 350.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda.  Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix butter, sugar, and brown sugar until smooth and fluffy (recommend using paddle on mixer).  Add salt, vanilla, almond extract, and eggs.  Mix well.  Add the flour mixture and mix until a good dough is formed.  Add chocolate chips and mix well at a low speed.
Scoop 1 tbsp spoon fulls onto a greased cookie sheet.  I like to use parchment paper instead of greasing a cookie sheet.
Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until golden.  Remove from the oven and let sit on the tray for about 1-2 minutes then move from cookie sheet to a cooling rack to continue cooling.
