I made cookies a couple of weeks ago for my coworker Maggie’s 26th birthday and they were a hit! Perfectly crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I adapted a recipe that I found on All Recipes based on a bunch of different tips other bakers had posted. I’m going to keep playing with this one to see if I can improve it any but I think it’s pretty awesome as-is.
1 cup softened butter – I used salted and will maybe try again with unsalted. Difference between the two butters? SALT. DUH.
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1) Cream butter, white sugar and brown sugar in mixer bowl
2) Beat in eggs
3) Sit in vanilla
4) Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl
5) Add flour mixture slowly to the butter mixture until JUST combined.
6) Stir in chocolate chips
7) Spoon rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheet and baking for 10-12 minutes (oven dependent) at 315 Fahrenheit.
