Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been tweaking this recipe for some time and DH says it's perfect now. So I thought I'd share my "perfect" cookie recipe. LOL

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

4- ounce stick of salted butter
7- ounces shortening
1- pound brown sugar
4- ounces white sugar
1/4- cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons vanilla
1 whole large egg
2 large egg yolks


1 pound + 4 ounces bread flour
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
8 ounces finely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 325°

In a large mixer bowl, on medium speed, cream butter, shortening and sugars until very light and fluffy…about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the liquids one at a time and beat well after each.

In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients and stir well to distribute the ingredients.

A little at a time, mix the dry ingredients into the sugar mixture. When all the dry ingredients have been incorporated, add the nuts and chocolate chips; by this time your mixer bowl may be full so you may have to stir them in by hand.

Using an ice cream scoop make dough balls, 2 ounces each and place 6 balls on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 18 minutes.

Cool cookies on a cooling rack by sliding the parchment paper off the cookie sheet onto the rack.

Store in airtight container.
Makes 40 cookies

Too late...all the evidence is gone.

Anyway to convert this recipe to volume measurements? I do not have a food scale.

Yes, I can convert it for you but then I can't vouch for what you will get when you make the cookies. Volume measure is such a guessing game. The hardest thing to get correct when using volume is the flour. People measure flour in such different ways that it's very hard to get it accurate without a scale.

4- ounce stick of salted butter.......................1 stick
7- ounces shortening.....................................1 cup
1- pound brown sugar.....................................2 cups
4- ounces white sugar.....................................1/2 cup
1/4- cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons vanilla
1 whole large egg
2 large egg yolks


1 pound + 4 ounces bread flour............................4-1/2 cups
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips....................1 bag
8 ounces finely chopped pecans ............................1 cup

Hi..!!
This recipe actually makes chewy cookies that stay chewy. I've used this base/technique of the butter / sugar and other... types of cookies stay chewy too. AWESOME. You may have to adjust the oven temp a little or the length of the cooking time and they will turn out perfect everytime.
