We lined our cookie sheets with Silpat sheets and preheated the oven to 350°.
In a bowl, we mixed all of the dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda and salt).
If you are cooking with your daughter, add the rest of the ingredients to the same bowl. Yep. That's how we did it. She didn't read the directions carefully enough and I really wanted her to take the lead. After we had everything in there, she saw that we needed to have two different bowls going (one for dry and one for the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla), but I said let's try it this way and see how they turn out. That's how we learn!
So, we added all the other ingredients to the same bowl and mixed as we added. The dough was crumbly at first because our butter wasn't exactly room temperature. We just continued to mix it though and the dough turned out great.
Once the dough was mixed, we added the chocolate chips and mixed until they were well incorporated.
To make the cookies uniform, we used our small cookie scoop to scoop the dough and place on the cookie sheets.
We baked them for twelve minutes or until they were golden brown.
