Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Carrie on November 29, 2009

Wow I have missed my kitchen. The other night Madalynn was happily sleeping on her Daddy and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to make some cookies. I mixed the dough, made about 6 cookies and then froze the rest in dough balls. Now we can always have fresh cookies.

BI Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 cups plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 12 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened (1.5 sticks)
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium bowl; set aside. Cream together butter and sugars until thoroughly combined. Beat in egg, yolk, and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients and beat at low-speed until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop out a rounded tablespoon of dough and shape into a ball. Place formed dough onto cookie sheet, leaving 2″ between each ball.  Bake at 350 until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft and puffy (approximately 12-13minutes).  The cookies will come out of the other rather puffy, but they will settle into a beautiful shape once cooled.

Cool cookies on sheets until able to lift without breaking. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

I don’t know if your kitchen misses you, but we sure do!
