I made these chewy chocolate chip cookies the other night before I left for my trip out west. I wanted to leave something for my two friends who are watching the furbaby while I’m away. Who doesn’t like the classic chocolate chip cookie? I like to take them out of the oven while they are just *slightly* browned and still puffy….as they cool they flatten out and remain really chewy! If you like them crispier, just leave them in a little longer… Below is the recipe I used!
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips1) Heat oven to 375° F.
2) Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
3) With an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the butter, sugars, and vanilla for 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the baking soda. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
4) Scoop the dough into heaping tablespoon-size mounds and place on the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake until lightly browned at the edges, 12 to 15 minutes.
5) Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.Original recipe found here.
