Chocolate Chip Cookies!

November 2, 2010

I felt like doing a little baking last night while Grill Boy was busy playing on his computer. I haven’t made cookies in forever, and I haven’t ever made them in the Kitchen Aid Mixer, so I set off on the quick task of busting out some chocolate chip cookies. I know everyone and their mother probably has a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe whether it comes off a Nestle Bag or comes from Nest le Toul Hauze

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 1/2 Egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup of chocolate chips (any variety!)

1. Lightly melt the butter in the microwave, we’re talking 20-30 sec max, you don’t want it melted to a liquid because it will make your cookies turn out flat. Also works to leave the butter out for about an hour to soften up.
2. Cream the butter and sugar together.
3. Add the eggs, and beat until fluffy (like a minute)

4. Measure out the flour, salt and baking soda and SIFT it into the wet ingredients, you must sift, or else your cookies again will be flat, now if you like pancake cookies then by all means ignore my warnings. *I also have learned for those of you who have the professional edition kitchen aid mixer, sifting into them is impossible, unless you have a tiny sifter. I ended up getting flour all over the counter rather than the bowl. Next time I will sift into a bowl and then pour that into the mixing bowl. Note epic sifting fail:

5. Mix this all together, and then after it is mixed add the vanilla extract. If you add it at the same time as the flour, the flour will absorb it all and it won’t mix in as well.
6. Mix in the chocolate chips.

7. Drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 min or until lightly browned.

This variety was chocolate and white chips at the request of Grill Boy. Not a bad double chocolate combo! Although I do always love Macadamia nuts with white chocolate. And of course I baked them, packed them up in a bag, brought them to work and they evaporated into thin air. Must be better about the finished product pictures! I just get too eager!
