Cheshire’s favorite cookie is the simple, the common, the humble, the delicious: Chocolate Chip Cookie. So since I made a batch for Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share my recipe with you!
Super easy and delicious, chocolate chip cookies are classic. You’d think that there’d just be one way to make chocolate chip cookies, but nope! Change the recipe just a little, and your cookies will turn out different. Butter vs margarine, brown sugar vs white, milk vs semi-sweet vs dark chocolate, whole eggs vs egg yolks, the list goes on. And every choice you make will change the cookie.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup salted butter, melted
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees
- In a small bowl, combine your flour, baking soda and salt. Wangjangle these together.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine melted butter and sugars. Mix on medium speed for 2-3 minutes until creamed. The mixture is going to change color a bit here, and you want a light tan/brown color.
- Add in your egg and vanilla and continue to mix for another 2-3 minutes.
- Turn mixer to low and slowly add in your flour mixture.
- Finally add in the chocolate chips.
- Scoop your dough out onto a cookie sheet (Don’t forget to leave some room between each scoop. The butter in this dough will flatten them out and you don’t want to end up with a giant sheet cookie…)
- Bake for 15-18 minutes, until edges are crispy and center is still soft. Remove and let cool on rack or eat immediately. Delicious!
