ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
yields 3 dozen
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 sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pound mixed milk and bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped
- pre-heat oven to 350 F
- cream butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla and beat until fluffy and light
- mix in dry ingredients followed by chocolate and nuts and mix until combined
- shape by hand in tablespoon sized balls and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet (forming into balls will keep the cookies thick)
- bake until browning, checking often as the key to chewy cookies is under-baking just slightly
my gf recently had her first baby, so i baked her a boxful and took them over to meet her little girl, isla.
