I was fortunate enough(can you feel the sarcasm here) to ” have” to make chocolate chip cookies per my daughters request for her drawing class end of year party. The container came back empty so I’m assuming they were a success, or my daughter dropped them on the ground and told me everyone loved them so I wouldn’t feel sad….j/k, of course they loved them…I think. These have just the right amount of sweetness and chocolate, wonderful with a glass of milk (unless you’re lactose intolerant.)
Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Chocolate Chunk Cookies (makes about 3 dozen, 2″ cookies)
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup (2 sticks or 16 tbsp) butter at room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp salt(optional)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups chocolate chunks (or chips)
Whisk flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 mins. Add in eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract and beat well. Add in the flour mixture and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Use a cookie scoop, or teaspoon to drop the dough on the lined baking sheet about and inch apart. Bake for 8-10 mins. Dig in!
