All things Chocolate!

Anyone who knows me knows I love chocolate and I love to bake. Of course, combining those two things is one of my favorite pass times. I bake anything and everything chocolate!


One of my favorite things is simple yet delicious. Chocolate chip cookies. There's nothing better then warm chocolatey goodness of a fresh baked cookie right out of the oven. I probably bake some sort of cookie about once a week. I've never meet a cookie I didn't like!


I want to share with you my favorite chocolate chip recipe. Let me know how yours turn out.


INGREDIANTS:

3 1/3 c all-purpose flour

1 tbsp. cornstarch

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 1/2 sticks of salted butter softened

1 c granulated sugar

1 1/3 c brown sugar

2 large eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips


DIRECTIONS:

  • In large bowl combine the first five dry ingredients and set aside.

  • In a large bowl cream butter and sugars until smooth and creamy.

  • Add in vanilla

  • Add in eggs - one at a time - mix on low.

  • Gradually add the dry ingredients that were set aside, mixing until well blended.

  • Stir in chocolate chips

  • Place dough in air-tight sealed container and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a light baking sheet for best results. Dark sheets may need less time, or have a crisper bottom.

  • Roll dough into balls - 1 1/2 tbsp. to 2 tbsp.

  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown at the edges.

  • Remove from oven and allow to cool. Remove from pan and place on wire baking rack.

Yields approx. 3 dozen cookies

Happy Baking!
