May 13, 2020: Chocolate Chip Cookies
Thin and crispy, yet chewy. This chocolate chip cookie recipe is a keeper!
Chocolate Chip Cookies by Chef Steven Bright
Makes 3 dozen
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 ½ sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
¾ cup packed light-brown sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, 1/4 cup water, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
- Bake until cookies are golden brown 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to one week.
