Chewy chocolate chip cookies

Posted in Uncategorized by nora on May 26, 2010

So, first up in the cookbook is chewy chocolate chip cookies.  These are very good, as my brother at right is demonstrating. This  makes about 180 cookies.

You will need:

  • 1  1/3 cups unsalted butter (salted will work if you omit the salt in the recipe)
  • 1  1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, cold
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3  3/4  cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1  1/4 teaspoons table salt (omit if you are using salted butter)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

What you do:

  1. Put 2 oven racks in the oven in the top and middle. Heat  oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. using a mixer with a paddle, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar at low-speed and working up to high-speed. Beat at  until mixture is light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. scrape the bowl and beater.
  3. add the eggs and vanilla and beat on high until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. scrape the bowl and beater.                                                                  paddle ——->
  4. in a medium bowl, whisk flour,  salt, and baking soda. add this to wet mixture mixing until just blended, dough will be stiff. stir in chocolate chips.
  5. drop rounded teaspoons on the  ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.  bake until the bottoms are golden brown, about 8-10 minutes. rotate the sheets at 4 minutes so the cookies get baked evenly. after cooking, transfer the cookies to wire cooling racks (you’ll need a few.)
  6. Repeat with extra dough
  7. Enjoy!!
