Cookies for Santa!

It's Christmas Eve!! Wow! It seems as if Christmas just kind of snuck up on us this year. Crazy how time flies when you are running around everyday. Anyway, with Santa's impending arrival, we were in need of cookies!

And I wanted to do the very traditional--but still not perfected--chocolate chip cookies. These did not disappoint. :)

Chocolate Chippers
recipe adapted from Grandma's Kitchen

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.

    In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

    In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter.

    Now beat in the sugars until light and fluffy.

    Beat in the egg until fully incorporated.

    In small increments, beat in the flour mixture. Once all the flour has been mixed in, beat in both extracts.

    Stir in the chocolate chips.

    Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for 9 minutes.

    Let the cookies sit in the baking sheet for an additional 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
