  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Sift flour and brown sugar into a bowl; stir in eggs. Mix butter into flour mixture until dough is creamy; fold in chocolate chips. Spoon dough onto a baking sheet, keeping them about 3 inches apart.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until slightly brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use white sugar in place of the brown sugar, but I prefer brown sugar.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
