Another of Abbie’s amazingly chewy chocolate chip cookies. This chewy chocolate chip cookie uses margerine and half a package of chocolate chips.

Abbie suggested making two batches this time so she had enough to take some chewy chocolate chip cookies to her teacher after her brothers horded all the cookies last time.

Preheat Oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C)

3/4 cup margerine softened -> cream at HIGH speed
1 egg

1 egg yolk -> beat together
add :
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
-> cream at HIGH speed (may be a tiny tiny bit lumpy )

In a big bowl mix:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon
1/2 package of chocolate chips

Add dry mixture 1/2 cup at a time while mixing.

Bake 7-12 min (varies by oven) until top is lightly golden.
Cool on baking sheets then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
