Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (No Eggs Required!)

Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup  butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chunks


Directions:

  1.  Preheat your oven to 375°.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium sized mixing bowl and stir well.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and milk, and beat using an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  4. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, and mix on low speed until well blended.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chunks by hand until they are distributed relatively evenly throughout your cookie dough.
  6. Spoon your cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet in 2-tablespoon portions, spacing each spoonful of cookie dough roughly 2 inches apart from the others to allow for expansion during baking.
  7. Bake cookies one sheet at a time on the center rack of your oven for 10 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown around the edges.
  8. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to a plate.
  9.  Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
