The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I know that sounds like a boast, but try it. Per batch...

2 1/4 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 eggs
2 sticks of butter (real)
1 tsp vanilla extract (real)
1 tsp almond extract (real)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Chocolate chips (semi-sweet or dark chocolate) - small package - can't remember size

Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt together in one bowl. In the second bowl, cream the softened butter, almond extract, vanilla extract, and the two types of sugar together. Add the eggs and beat with a mixer..

Add in the flour a bit at a time and beat with a mixer.

Bake at 375 degrees for 4 1/2 minutes. Rotate trays to different racks (top rack's cookies go on bottom and bottom rack's cookies go on top). Bake 4 1/2 more minutes.

This looks a lot like any other chocolate chip cookie recipe you've ever seen. The differences are in red. The almond extract really makes for a tasty cookie base. And the sugar is cut from 3/4 cup of both white and brown sugar, and I promise it tastes better.

I don't check in for a week and you've got TWO posts up, including an interesting recipe for cookies. I'll admit that I've never tried almond extract in a batch. Fortunately, I have some in my kitchen, so I'll have to give it a try.
