Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are just the perfect cookie: they are slightly crisp but still super chewy with a nice puffiness. I also love these because they are only sweetened with dark brown sugar. They have a lovely richness that a cookie with white sugar might lack. So. So. Good. The recipe came from Jenna of Eat, Live, Run, a blog I recently started following after seeing some of her awesome entries to Project Food Blog. The recipes on her blog are predominately baked goods as she went to culinary school for baking. When someone who bakes basically everyday calls one of their recipes their favorite ____, you have to make them. And that’s why I have made these. And they are perfect.
Chocolate Chip Cookies:
adapted from Jenna’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies from Eat, Live, Run
– 2 1/2 cups AP flour
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1 tsp salt
– 1 cup softened butter (2 sticks)
– 2 cups dark brown sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– chocolate chips (Jenna used a whole bag but I just used half of a 12 oz bag … more chocolate would have been lovely but not necessary)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the flour baking powder and salt (I do this right in the measuring cup to cut down on dishes. Blend the butter in sugar using an electric mixer. Add one of the eggs, blend, add the other, blend, add the vanilla extract and blend. Add the dry mixture slowly while blending. Add the chocolate chips and fold them into the dough. Scoop tablespoon sized balls onto a baking sheet and bake for about 11 to 12 minutes, or until the edges start to get golden. After letting them cool, remove, serve, ENJOY!
