Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

My sister in law asked when I was making my chocolate chip cookies again. She really likes them and she's not the only one. I love the texture of these cookies, a little crunchy on the outside and nice and chewy in the middle. They are great with a nice glass of milk or a cup of coffee.

Ingredients:
1 2/3 cups of flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, roomtemperature
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk chocolate chips

Preparation:
Preheat your oven to 350 F.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Cream the butter with the brown and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Gradually mix in the sifted ingredients.
Sir in the chocolate chips.

Drop heaped tablespoons of batter on a sheet pan lined with parchment or a silicon baking mat, leave space around the heaps, they will flatten and get way bigger!
Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the sheet pan before transferring them to a wire rack where you let them cool completely.

Makes about 3 dozen, depends on how heaped your tablespoons are.
