Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the cookies that broke my 10-year cookie curse!  Yum!  Makes large cookies, so only put 9 on a sheet, instead of 12.  Makes a lot - 36 large cookies for a full batch

Ingredients
  • 3 ½ cups flour
  • 1 ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 ¼ cups  butter
  • 1 ¼ cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 (11.5 oz.) bag chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine and set aside.
  3. Using paddle attachment on mixer, cream butter and sugars together just until blended.
  4. Add eggs, one a time, mixing well after each addition.
  5. Add the vanilla.
  6. Put mixer on low speed, and add in dry ingredients.
  7. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  8. Stir in chocolate chips by hand gently.
  9. It's best to make bigger cookies for the right texture - so I would recommend using 4 Tablespoon size scoop to form your cookies.
  10. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 12-17 minutes.  Let them finish cooking on the cookie sheet for a few minutes while they cool. Then move them to a cookie rack or plate to keep cooling.

Try this! 

  1. If you are freezing these cookies: Form into balls, and freeze on a cookie sheet. After frozen remove and add to a ziploc freezer bag. They will last for about a month in the freezer. To bake just take out and bake as directed, adding a few extra minutes of baking time.
