Ultimate Chewy & Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since my husband's last failed attempt of cookies in the kitchen... I decided to help him out tonight w/ some real CC cookies. I got this recipe from Beantown Baker.


* 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
* 1 cup tightly packed light brown sugar
* 1/2 cup granulated sugar
* 2 large eggs
* 1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extra
* 3 cups plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
* 1 tsp. baking soda
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* 16 oz. bitter or semi-sweetchocolate (we used chocolate chips)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, or lightly butter, and set aside.
3. Mix by hand/electric mixer the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
5. Beat in the vanilla.
6. Sift in the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl.
7. Add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture, and mix until just combined.
8. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
7. Shape knobs of dough about the size of a large walnut and place them 2 inches apart on the baking sheets.
8. Bake 12-15 minutes for smaller cookies; 14-17 minutes for large ones, or until tops are a light golden brown. If the cookies are neither firm not dark when they are removed from the oven, they will cool chewy and soft.
9. Cool the cookies on the sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
