Brown Sugar Chcolate Chip Cookies

I am having a baby sitter over tonight and she always does it for free, as long as I supply homemade cookies. These are what I decided to make because I was all out of white sugar. This recipe uses only brown sugar and is very chewy. I had bought some m&ms because they were on sale. I didn't realize that they were "ogre" sized Shrek M&Ms. They make a nice addition to the cookie. I would have prefered semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you could really use any sort of chocolate piece in them.

Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies
(with ogre sized M&Ms)

2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 c butter
1 1/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 c semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until fluffy.
Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until almost all incorporated. Then add the chocolate chips and stir them in.
Drop by rounded tablespoons on baking sheet. Bake 9-11 min at 350F. Makes 3 doz. For some reason I never get the amount of cookies that a recipe says it will yield. I must make them big.

I made these and they were totally yummy! I didn't have any chocolate chips, so I chopped up some semi-sweet baking chocolate instead. Turned out great! Can't wait to try the pasta recipe!
