I didn't know how well everyone else would react to sprinkles in the cookies, so I decided to make her a special cookie. A special cookie for a special little girl just had to be in the shape of a heart. She loved it! She actually gave it a thumbs up, so I guess I did good.
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 ½ tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Place sugars, butter, eggs and vanilla in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater to mixer. Turn mixer to Speed 2 and mix about 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed 4 and beat about 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl.
Turn to Stir Speed. Gradually add baking soda, salt and flour to sugar mixture and mix about 2 minutes. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Add chocolate chips. Turn to Stir Speed and mix about 15 seconds.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake at 375F for 10—12 minutes. Remove from baking sheets immediately and cool on wire racks.
VARIATIONS: 2 cups raisins, coconut or chopped nuts may be substituted for chocolate chips. ***I always add a few chocolate chunks to the top for my chocolate flavor. I also added M&M's in some of these.
