I can't believe it's been 2 years since Luke graduated/commissioned. In some ways, it seems like USNA was so long ago just in that it was a different season of life, but in other ways, it feels like this time has flown by, probably because we've hopped around so much from TAD to school to school. Luke was promoted last week and had his wetting down over the weekend with 6 other LTs who promoted at the same time. I made these cookies along with some other party snacks. I loved them so much that I made another 1/2 batch on Monday for the Bachelorette viewing party.
2 sticks butter (all great recipes start with this ingredient...)
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Cream the butter and sugar together until it's fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time followed by the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients one at a time until incorporated. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
