I think I mentioned before that I love trying different chocolate chip cookie recipes. This one here may be my favorite recipe……well, my 2nd favorite. It has the look that I like, it’s buttery, crispy on the edges and chewy on the inside. It is everything I like in a chocolate chip cookie. I found this recipe on the Food Channel awhile back. I changed it up just a wee bit. If you like CCC’s, you will love this. Trust me.
Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 stick of butter not too soft
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (semi sweet or milk or bittersweet)
With the mixer on load speed, cream together butter and sugars till smooth but not overly mixed. Add the egg and vanilla. STIR in the dry ingredients gently…Don’t go crazy. Stir just until combined. Mix in the chocolate chips. Chill dough for 20-30 minutes. Heat oven to 350.
Scoop cookies into 1″ balls and set 2 inches apart on a sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 12-15 minutes, rotating pan once. My oven is electric and I bake these for 14 minutes. let them cool on the pan. You may not see those wonderful crackles at first, but as they cool, the cracks and crannies will appear. Delicious with a glass of milk or with a scoop of ice cream on top.
