the most important part of my recipe is actually the baking time. i always bake the cookies for 8-8.5 minutes and let them finish baking on the hot pan outside of the oven.
Dry ingredients3 cups flour
1.5 teaspoons of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup raw sugar
1 cup butter
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
12 oz bag of chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375.
Sift together dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix softened butter (do not use an electric mixer) with sugars. And eggs and combine. Add vanilla extract and combine.
Gradually add dry ingredients to sugar mixture.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Chill dough for 10 - 15 minutes.
Drop generous dough "clumps" onto cookie sheet (taller clumps seem to bake down and puff up better than wide clumps), and put in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes (check at 8 minutes and bake longer if necessary). Or you can take 'em out at 8 minutes and let them finish baking on the hot cookie sheet .
***since the last time i shared this recipe i have switched to ALL butter (instead of a combination of shortening and butter) and raw sugar (instead of granulated sugar).
this little mouse got to help AND eat some "choc," as he calls it.
