Reese's Chip Cookies

I love cookies!! Who doesn't love them? I know I say I love a lot of things, but it's because I do. Cookies are my emotional food that I go to. When I'm sad and when I'm lonely, I munch on cookies...but my favorite emotion to eat them is when I'm happy and loved. Basically, I eat cookies whenever! I love all types of cookies, but my favorite are the soft cookies. I know there's a ton of recipes out there for all kinds of cookies, but I love my recipe the best. It's perfectly cooked and soft. I can't get enough of these!!

1 cup butter, room temperature
½ cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar (packed and overflowing)
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs (room temperature)
½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp baking soda
2 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour (save one cup on the side)
2 cups of reese's chocolate chips

Using a mixer, mix butter and both sugars together until well blended. Add in vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Add in the salt and baking soda; mix well until all is evenly blended. Add in 1 cup and 2 Tbsp of flour. Mix well and turn off the mixer. Mix in the last cup of flour using a wooden spoon and add the reese's chips.
Don’t over-mix as this may toughen the cookies.

Spoon and drop onto ungrease cookie sheet giving about 2 inches of space between each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for about 7 minutes and then rotate cookie sheets so cookies bake evenly. Bake for another 4 minutes. When cookies are nice and brown (not under-cook or over-cook) take cookie sheet out and set aside for one minute because cookies will continue to cook if on cookie sheet. For crispier cookies, bake longer and check every minute that they're golden brown and not darker brown. Remember when you take the cookies out, they continue cooking on the cookie sheet.
