Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks butter
2 eggs, divided
1/2 TBSP baking powder
1 3/4 cup white sugar, divided
1/2 TBSP vanilla
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBSP baking powder
3 cups flour
1 bag chocolate chocolate chips

Soften the butter in the microwave. Put it in the mixer bowl and add ONE of the eggs, the baking soda, ONE cup of the sugar, the vanilla, and the molasses. Beat until well combined.

Now add salt, baking powder, and the rest of the sugar. Beat until well combined.

Next add the flour. Mix well. (The mixture will be dry and crumbly.)

Now add the second egg, and mix until everything is moistened. The dough should be a normal consistency now.

Last, add the chocolate chips and mix until they are evenly distributed.

Shape the dough into rough balls and flatten them in between your hands. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
