These cookies are soft and yummy. I got the recipe from my foods class in high school.
This is still a favorite cookie recipe. They are soft because they have powdered sugar instead of brown sugar.
Chocolate Chip Melt-A-Ways
2 ¼ cup All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 cup Butter (softened)
¾ cup Granulated Sugar
¾ cup Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 cups Chocolate Chips or M&M's or anything else you like
Preheat oven to 350° F. Sift Flour and Baking Soda together (I usually skip this and just add them in at the end.) Set aside. Beat Butter and Sugars together. Beat in Egg and Vanilla. Add Dry Ingredients. Stir in Chocolate Chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 minutes or until light brown. Cool on racks. Makes about 48 small cookies.
