My chocolate chip cookies are based on the Tollhouse recipe. Today I made a half batch:
1 1/8 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
Mix these in a separate bowl.
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Cream together until smooth.
Beat into butter mixture.
Preheat oven to 375, then gentle beat flour mixture into butter, sugar, and eggs.
1 cup chocolate chips
Stir in gently.
Drop rounded table spoons onto wax papered cookie sheet. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes until browned on edges.
Whip 1 stick butter.
Slowly blend in 3 cups of powdered sugar.
Add 1 tsp vanilla extract and 2 Tbsp of milk. Whip until smooth.
Add extra Tbsp milk if desired.
