Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ah, the chocolate chip cookie. The perfect crowd pleasing sweet treat. The addition of brown sugar gives these cookies a wonderful caramel colour & taste. They are fantastic right out of the oven and stay good for several days at room temperature (just warm them in the microwave for 20 seconds to get the chocolate all gooey). I love this recipe because its so versatile and I can whip up large quantities with ease. Deliciousness.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
[Makes 36 cookies]

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in center of oven
2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil
3. Beat the butter until smooth and creamy
4. Add the white and brown sugars and beat until fluffy (about 2 minutes)
5. Beat in eggs, one at a time, making sure to beat well after each addition
6. Add the vanilla and beat until incorporated (scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed)
7. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt
8. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and beat until just incorporated
9. Add chocolate chips and fold into mixture
10. Using an ice cream scoop, drop dough into the prepared baking sheets (use a tablespoon for smaller cookies)
11. To get visible chocolate chips on baked cookies, stick a few chocolate chips on each ball of cookie dough
12. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown

Note: If the dough gets very soft, cover and refrigerate until firm before scooping onto baking sheets

        I’m joking! The cookies were even more delicious! I’d wager even more epic than Subway cookies.

      Love Ghirardelli’s but most of the time I get Hershey’s since those are more easily available
