National Homemade Cookie Day

I'm not really big on keeping up with obsure {aka celebrate for no reason} holidays, but when I saw that October 1st was National Homemade Cookie Day I knew I had to share some of my favorite cookie recipes with you....and maybe even make a couple dozen too!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are my favorite cookies, and the ones that I make the most!
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar {I always add more}
1 cup of butter, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups of all purpose flour
12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
1. Mix sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla on medium until sort of fluffy...about 2 minutes.
2. Gradually add in all the dry ingredients and mix for about 2 minutes.
3. Add in chocolate chips and mix for about 15 seconds.
4. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes.

I have been looking for a new peanut butter cookie recipe for years so I'm sooo glad you reposted it!!!! I am going to try it out TODAY! :)

The chocolate oatmeal ones look really good too - think I might have to make some of those to go along with them.

Mmm!! I think Monster cookies are my fav, but since they have PB in them and Buddy's allergic, I haven't had/made them in years. Chocolate chip comes next. I use real vanilla, and egg substitute and they are amazing. They don't get golden brown because I don't use eggs, but they stay soft!

Now this is a holiday that I could celebrate! All your cookies that you shared reminded me of my childhood. So much can be said about the comfort of a cookie. :-)
