I don't know about you, but I LOVE chocolate chip cookies. They are some of the best cookies and are pretty simple to make.
This time I found a great recipe and made them with dark chocolate and they were so good.
Now when it comes to how i make chocolate chip cookies I follow 1 rule: never measure your chocolate chips. As corny as it sounds you should measure chocolate chips with your heart and soul not a measuring cup. And this time, I dumped in a whole bag plus a little extra of my favorite, dark chocolate. It just felt right to dump in the whole bag and a little extra.
Picture the process:
So let's get to it, it's probably why you're here, this is the recipe from handle the heat:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 cups chocolate chips, I used dark but semi-sweet is also good
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
In the bowl of a mixer, cream butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Add vanilla and eggs until combined.
Slowly add in the flour mixture until fully incorporated.
With a spatula mix in the chocolate chips.
If possible, refrigerate dough for 24 hours. Bring the dough back to room temperature before placing the cookies in the oven. This step is not required.
Cover cookies sheets with parchment paper and scoop cookies placing them a little bit apart with room for spreading.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until slightly golden brown. Place on wire racks to cool.
