a cold glass of milk. I have made many different kinds
of chocolate chip cookies and this one is my favorite.
You can add your favorite nuts or chips. Remember
Santa loves cookies too.
Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons coarse salt
2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1) In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
2) In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter
and sugars on medium-high until light and fluffy, 6 min.
Reduce speed to medium-low and beat in eggs, one at a
time. Beat in vanilla. Mix in the flour mixture just until
incorporated, fold in chocolate chips and chunks.
3) Using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop or a large spoon, drop
dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet ( you should
have 24) and refrigerate 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350*
Arrange 6 unbaked cookies 3 inches apart, on each of the
two parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until edges are
light and golden brown. 17 to 18 minutes, rotating sheets
halfway through. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let
cool. Bake remaining dough using new parchment.
