Softest Chocolate Chip Cookies


This week was Spring Break so we had all 4 kids at home at all times.  I went crazy a few times, i'll admit.  I can only handle that much mayhem a day here or there.  

But to contain the crazies, we kept busy throughout the week.  One activity that is always a winner in our house is baking cookies!

And not just any cookies.  These have been found to be the softest, yummiest kind EVER.  Period.
And i'm going to share the recipe with you just so you can try them and acknowledge that this is, in fact, the softest cookies you'll ever have.  So Thank you Ashley Gaskell for sharing these with me!

Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 stick of butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
1 3/4 c. chocolate chips (you also add other types of chips too!)

Combine flour, baking soda, salt and set aside.  Cream together butter, cream cheese, both sugars and vanilla.  Add eggs one at a time.  Gradually mix in the flour mixture.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Form into about a tablespoon ball and bake 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes.  Let cool then store them.  They stay soft for a long time!








Seriously, these only lasted a day at our home.  I think i'll make another batch today....
