We had some friends over for dinner on Saturday night for Jordan's birthday. I wanted to make some cookies for dessert and while browsing Pinterest I came across this recipe. The photo kind of says it all. They tasted as good as they looked! Probably the best cookie I've ever made. You've gotta try them! You can find the initial recipe here. I'm going to share the slightly less complicated version I made.
What you'll need:
1/2 pound unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
2 large eggs
3 cups plus 1 tablespoon flour
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 pound bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using an electric mixer (mine is the hand-held kind) mix together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well in between. Add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and chocolate, blending them together at a low setting. Continue till mixed well.
Place heaping tablespoons, 2 inches apart, on a greased baking sheet. Bake for about 11 minutes, or until they start to brown. Place on a wire rack until cool. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
They are amazing. This is definitely my new go-to recipe when it comes to chocolate chip cookies. I won't be going back to the Nestle Tool House recipe ever again! Enjoy.
