Time to share my secret... best homemade soft baked cookies EVER: \r\n1 1/2 c. flour (or more depending on your butter modifications), 1/4 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt (don't be afraid to "spill" a little extra), 1/2 c. butter (extra butter=extra good), 1 egg, 1 tsp. vanilla (over pour it, trust me), 1 c. brown sugar ( I mix in a little cane sugar too), 1 pkg. chocolate chips. Mix together and bake at 350°F for 12 minutes. Nom nom nom!!
