Something about the fall screams Chocolate Chip Cookies in the Smith-Breedlove Household and ever since we have lived together I have been trying to find the perfect recipe that works for me to make and for him to eat. Well George..!!.. I think we got it! And surprisingly the longer these bad boys sit in the fridge the better they taste. The recipe is a mixture of talking with a cookie baking expert and a recipe adapted from here.
So enough with the talking let’s get to the info that brought you here:
YIELD: about 19 large, bakery-style cookies PREP TIME: 40 minutes, for dough chilling
COOK TIME: about 15 to 16 minutes TOTAL TIME: about 1 hour
- 1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) melted salted butter and cooled, (cut into 1/2-inch cubes before placing into microwave for melting; if using unsalted butter increase the salt listed below from 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon)
- 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, room temperature
- 2 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and set aside, don’t over mix.
- In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended (1-2 minutes,scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary).
- Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. (You don’t want the sugar granules to start dissolving so don’t over mix.)
- Mix in the sifted, set aside ingredients in three batches until just blended.
- Fold in the chips with flexible spatula or by hand.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. My favorite is Pam baking with flour.
- Place cookie dough onto prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
- Bake for about 10 minutes or until edges are barely golden (will looked under baked). Cool on the baking sheets for 5 to 10 minutes before eating. Let completely cool before storing at room temperature in an airtight container.
Good Luck on your cookies
