This should be your go to cookie recipe. Pretty much the base of this (minus the chocolate chips) plus whatever you want to add will make the perfect cookie. Me and my friend Kristy used to make batches and batches of these cookies all the time. It's something you can keep in the fridge for a few days and make them fresh as needed (or wanted).
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg room temp (lightly beaten)
- 7 oz chocolate chips (about 1/2 a bag)
- 1 stick softened butter
In a large bowl combine softened butter, sugar and brown sugar.
With a hand mixer or stand mixer beat on low speed until well combined and smooth.
Add the vanilla and egg, and beat on low until fully mixed. Don't over beat.
In a medium bowl combine dry ingredients, flour- baking soda- salt.
On low speed add the flour mixture into the wet mixture until well incorporated. Don't over mix.
Add chocolate chips and incorporate into cookie dough by hand with a wooden spoon.
Refrigerate for an hour.
Spoon cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 350 for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
Remove from oven, and slide parch paper onto workspace.
When see (3 minutes or so) move to cooling rack.
Wait 5 minutes until you serve.
Can't beat an amazing cookie recipe. You can spend your whole culinary career searching for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. This comes pretty damn close. Cheers!
