Oishii: Chocolate chip cookies

So far, all of our oishii recipes have featured traditional Japanese dishes. But I can't pass up posting about these delicious chocolate chip cookies.

Hey, Japanese people eat cookies, too.

This recipe actually comes from the back of the Guittard semisweet chocolate chip bag.

It's super simple. Those of you who love chewy, flat chocolate chip cookies will love this.

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Guittard semisweet chocolate chips*

*The recipe actually calls for 2 cups (12 ounces) of chocolate chips, but I've found that 1 cup makes for a more balanced cookie.

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
3. In large bowl, cream butter, sugar and brown sugar until light. Beat in eggs and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Drop by well rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
