The Best Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!

Dear Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies,

I want to first off, apologize for judging a book by its cover. I am not a cookie fan. I never make cookies because frankly I haven't found a recipe that makes me want to ball up little chunks of dough so they can bake into perfectly plumps little disks. Cause, well how do I put this...they uhh never ever bake up into little plumps of anything. Aaron is the cookie baker in the fam. It's his breakfast if they're in the kitchen. I'm more of a cheesecake kind of gal; a chocolate ganache and moist cake kind of chick. I came across you on the pages of William-Sonoma's Essentials of Baking and I flipped right by you not giving you the time of day.

Yet something caught my eye. Your simplicity and ease. The very few ingredients required to make you. With the money I am trying to save and the little time I have on my hands, I thought maybe we could make this work. Maybe we could make it happen; me, you and the oven. And all I have to say is thank you. Thank you for allowing me to find my inner cookie-goddess. For teaching me how glorious all your chocolates taste when you dive into a plump and perfectly baked cookie. I hope we can meet again. Real soon. Like tomorrow maybe?

Sincerely, Little Bakin' Blonde
Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c butter at room-temp. (unsalted)
3/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c white sugar (packed)
1 egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4 c bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 c milk chocolate chips
3/4 c white chocolate chips
Sift flour, baking soda and salt, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugars until well combined. Beat in egg and vanilla, mixing thoroughly. Slowly add the flour mixture, a little at a time until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto lined baking sheet and cook at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet 10 minutes and transfer to finish cooling on plate. 

Try to let them cool before enjoying; but who am I kidding? You'll dig in like we did : )
