Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned dose of chocolate. I prefer mine to come in the form of chocolate chip cookies. And, since it’s that time of the month, I had a hankering for chocolate…right…now…
So, I asked the children if they would mind if I made The World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies this afternoon…ummm…YES!
A little history…
I’ve been making chocolate chip cookies for a long time. And, every time I made them, friends and family would drool, beg, and line up at the house for more. They always told me that the cookies were the best they had ever had (hence the name…I’m not bragging…just using the words of others ).
In fact, the cookies became so popular that I actually opened up a cookie company – The Vermont Chocolate Chip Cookie Company (that’s a mouthful) and sold cookies to local stores and online. This went along well until the demand was too much for the time that I could commit, and I closed the company.
But, I still make these cookies on special occasions (and when I’m in a certain time of the month, and craving chocolate at every meal), and I am even going to share my family secret recipe with you…my wonderful blog readers and fellow foodies!
Without further ado…
World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 ½ tsp vanilla (I use my homemade vanilla)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups flour
12 oz chocolate chips (I tend to use a bit more…I don’t really measure)
Beat sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla until well mixed. Add baking soda, salt and flour. Mix until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake 375 for 10-12 min. Remove from oven and let sit for 2 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.
I’ve had my KitchenAid Mixer for 11 years and it’s still going strong. I got it as a wedding gift, and never used it for anything else except cookies for about 9 of the 11 years (then I started making homemade pizza dough). The cookie scoop makes sure that your cookies are all the same size, so then they will all cook evenly. And, although I no longer sell Pampered Chef ® (I did for 11+ years), I am very partial to their stoneware baking pans, because the generic version is NOT the same quality. The stoneware ensures even baking, and no burning. I also tend to take mine out of the oven around 10 minutes, because I like mine on the chewy side.
Well, that’s it. My secret recipe for the World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies is now out in the blogosphere for all to see. Hope you all enjoy it!
