As I told y'all earlier, Husband adores his chocolate chip cookies! So, today, I thought I'd share my favorite recipe with you. This is a great cookie to share with those you love! It's super easy to make, especially with a KitchenAid mixer. Is there any other?! And, though optional, I highly recommend one of Lynn's aprons all pretty and Lilly-fied!! I own two sets for me and the minnies!! They just make the whole process more colorful. Just so you know, I bake the cookies on a Pampered Chef stoneware piece. I swear by them for baking.
Finally, here's my recipe:
Chococlate Chip Cookies
1 C sugar
1 C firmly packed brown sugar
1C softened butter
1-1/2 to 1-3/4 tsp pure vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2-3/4 to almost 3 C flour
14-16oz Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
(sometimes I'll use 1/2 semi-sweet and 1/2 milk chocolate)
Preheat oven to 375.
Beat together sugars, butter, vanilla and eggs until fluffy. I start on speed 2 and increase to Speed 4.
Then, on the lowest setting, mix in the baking soda and salt. Once incorporated, mix in about 1/2 C flour until incorporated. Continue to add flour by 1/2 C increments until all flour has been used. Then turn mixer back to speed 4 for about 30 seconds. Back to stir and add chocolate chips.
I use a PC medium scoop and place the cookies about 2 inches apart on the cookie stone. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool for a couple of minutes on the cookie stone, then remove them to a cooling rack.
Personally, I enjoy them warm, but Husband prefers them after a couple of hours with a glass of milk. How do you enjoy your cookies?
Well, this has made me hungry, so I'm off to eat a cookie! TTFN!!
