12 days of cookies

I am going to kick off my twelve days of cookies with this recipe:

Chocolate chip cookies


1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (12-ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips, or chunks
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon fine salt

  • Evenly position 2 racks in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. (on convection setting if you have it.) Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone sheets. (If you only have 1 baking sheet, let it cool completely between batches.)
  • Put the butter in a microwave safe bowl, cover and microwave on medium power until melted. (Alternatively melt in a small saucepan.) Cool slightly.
  • Whisk the sugars, eggs, butter and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth.
  • Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl.
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon; take care not to over mix.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips or chunks.
  • Scoop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared pans.
  • Wet hands slightly and roll the dough into balls.
  • Space the cookies about 2-inches apart on the pans.
  • Bake, until golden, but still soft in the center, 12 to 16 minutes, depending on how chewy or crunchy you like your cookies.
  • Transfer hot cookies with a spatula to a rack to cool.
Serve and enjoy.
