In mixing bowl, combine first five ingredients; beat 2 minutes. Add egg. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in milk chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes or until starting to brown. Cool at least 2 minutes before removing to wire rack. Yields about 2-1/2 dozen cookies.
I made these for a recent cookie exchange and they are AMAZING. I think these will be my go to cookies. I know I will never make just plain chocolate chip cookies again. They taste the best right out of the oven warm, but that doesn't stop me or my husband putting a couple in the microwave to warm and enjoy!
