Comfort Food - Chocolate Chip Cookies

I LOVE chocolate chip cookies.. I mean I really love chocolate chip cookies.. They are the ultimate of comfort foods..

Do you have a favorite comfort food? 
Here is my favorite cookie receipe!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup of unsalted butter - softened
1/3 cup dark brown sugar - firmly packed
1/3 cup of white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup - plus 2 tablespoons of sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
7-1/2 ounce package of chocolate chips
(Now I mix half and half of dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips, but that's just me)
- also I have substituted 3/4 cup of walnuts and dried fruit instead of chocolate chips and they are SUPER tasty.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375F.  Lightly grease two large baking sheets with butter or vegetable shortening (now I use no need to grease cookie sheets)
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars.
Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Mix well!
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
Gradually add flour mixture to the batter.
Add chocolate chips

Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of batter onto the baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies have browned around the edges.

Let cool and enjoy!
