H- please note that this recipe's not the exact wording as my cookbook, due to copyright, legal stuff. Ingredients are exactly the same though. Enjoy!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c packed dark brown sugar
1/2c granulated sugar
2 sticks salted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
turn on oven: 300 degrees.
mix: flour, soda, and salt. Mix well with wire whisk and set aside.
with an electric mixer, blend sugars at med. speed. Add butter and mix . add eggs and vanilla extract, and mix at med. speed until just blended. DON"T overmix.
add the flour mix and chocolate (either chips or chunks), and mix at low speed until just barely mixed. do not overmix.
drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. bake for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. transfer cookies immediately to a cool surface with a spatula. I use a melon scoop and cook it for 18 minutes. If I use a bigger scoop, I go for the 22 minutes.
If you end up trying this, let me know what you think. I really enjoy them. I recently used this recipe and used sugar free choc. chunks and still had good results.
