I love chocolate chip cookies. When my husband and I were dating we’d try a different version of the classic cookie every weekend. One of my favorite memories is us slow dancing in the kitchen waiting on the cookies to finish baking with the smell of butter and sugar filling the room…. It was heaven…. at least thats how I think heaven will be.. Yes definitely.
This is one of our favorite recipes of all we have tried.. The recipe below was derived from the Jacques Torres’ secret chocolate cup cookie recipe but we’ve made it into our own!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 pound butter
1 cup granulated sugar
3 cups dark brown sugar
3 cups pastry flour
3 cups bread flour
1 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp baking soda
2 Tbsp vanilla
12 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped
12 oz milk chocolate
Make sure it’s real vanilla extract…. It makes a huge difference
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Use a electric mixer to mix the butter and sugars. Add the eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl whisk the dry ingredients together. Slowly add the dry ingredients one cup at a time to the dry ingredients, until well blended. Last add the vanilla and chocolate into the mix. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the cookie dough out and place on the cookie sheet two inches apart. Bake the cookies until lightly browned, roughly 20 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
