1 large egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips or 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup m&m’s
Whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with a hand held mixer until light and fluffy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Beat in the egg and then the vanilla.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, to make a soft dough.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Spoon a heaping tablespoon of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 3-inches apart.
Bake the cookies until brown around the edges, about 12 to 14 minutes.
Repeat with the remaining dough.
Enjoy with milk. Perfectly crunchy and delicious.
