whoa! one pound of brown sugar .. 2 tablespoons of vanilla .. dang
those have to be super moist & chewy
I've been trying to perfect my chewy type CCC (I guess they're more airy/puffy than chewy).. and I really liked this last batch:
200g Brown Sugar
8oz/1 cup of Butter
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
150g chopped walnuts
12oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375ºF
Place sugar, brown sugar, margarine, eggs, vanilla and vinegar in large bowl. Beat for 1 to 1 ½ minutes, or until smooth.
Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat until blended. Add chocolate chips and walnuts, beat until combined.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto parchment paper'ed baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake at 375ºF for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from baking sheets immediately and cool on wire racks.
The extra flour gives them more structure, and the white vinegar helps the baking soda to give them more puffiness.
I think next batch I am going to add a little more brown sugar & and egg yoke or two, to get them a bit more moist.
