Cookies Make the Heart Grow Fonder

First thing this morning, Jeffrey pissed me off. It wasn't so much that I was actually angry, just slightly perturbed at his early morning nonsense, and I snapped at him a little more than I should have. As a peace offering, I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies to greet him with when he came home from work. Usually I don't like chocolate chip anything, but these cookies came out so good, I decided to eat three and then share the recipe.

(Yes. They are square. I put my dough globs too close together, and they all baked into each other. They're better that way. Shut up.)

1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the vanilla and eggs one at a time. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Finally, mix in the chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden. Remove from baking sheet to cool on wire racks.

Since this is technically a blog devoted to my baby, here's a picture of her being good for a change:

It lasted for about six pictures, which based on the shutter speed of my camera, translates to about thirteen seconds.

Good Lord, I love that baby.
