Chocolate Chip Cookies


I don’t think you can beat the classic chocolate chip cookie. Agree to disagree, but there is just something about the combination of such simple ingredients -butter, flour, sugar, chocolate, and a few others- that makes it comforting. This is a recipe I found a few months ago, and I don’t think I will use any other recipe again! There is just enough chocolate without overwhelming the cookie, and with a glass of milk, everything in the world will be perfect. Or at least until you finish the cookie :) Feel free to freeze the dough for a later use. Just add a few minutes to the baking time, or let them thaw.

Chocolate Chip Cookies Adapted loosely from Smitten Kitchen


  • 3/4 cup butter; melted
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips {I prefer the big kind!}

to make

  1. Preheat oven to 325º.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars.
  3. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
  4. Mix in the flours, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Grease two baking sheets.
  7. With a tablespoon, spoon balls of dough, and place on the baking sheets in four rows of four. Continue until all dough is used, or your baking sheets are full. Leftover dough can be placed in the fridge or freezer.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes, switching sheets halfway through.
  9. Let cool on sheets before transferring to a wire rack.
  10. Bon appetite!

I apologize for the quick post, but sometimes shorter is better! Have a wonderful night!
