Cuisine: Yummy
Serves: 30
Ingredients
Dry
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3½ C. unbleached, all-purpose white flour
Wet
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, soften (room temperature)
  • 1 C. dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 C. light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ⅓ C. white granulated sugar
  • 2 lg. eggs
  • 4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 12ozs bags semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients. It’s very important that these are sifted. I use a fine mesh strainer and a whisk over a large bowl to sift. Traditional hand sifters suck.
  3. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together with a mixer on medium until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, beat well.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring well as you go.
  5. The dough will be very stiff. You may have to mix the last bit of flour in by hand.
  6. Add chocolate chips and mix by hand until well blended.
  7. Using a large ice cream scoop, drop rounded spoonfuls (about the size of large golf balls) onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
  8. Flatten slightly with hands.
  9. Bake for 11 minutes.
  10. Tops of cookies should still look a little shiny. Underbaking is always best.
  11. Let cookies rest on cookie sheet for 10 minutes to continue baking and set-up. Transfer to wire cooling rack.
