Chocolate Chip Cookies: Take Two!

In my pursuit of the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, I've had to eat a few not so great cookies. You may be scratching your head wondering, 'How in the world can ANY cookie be unappealing'. Well, they can be dry, too crisp, crumbly, hard or a bit too doughy. Not to say that the 3 P's wouldn't eat any homemade cookie that I made, we haven't got that kind of problem here at Porter Central. The real trick here is getting the dough out of the bowl and into the oven before my family eats it raw!
 
When I found this recipe on Pinterest I decided it was a must try chocolate chip cookie recipe. It looks fantastic. So here goes......

 Chocolate Chip Cookies Take Two!

 

Ingredients

 
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 12 ounce bags semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 12 ounce bag dark chocolate chips
 
 

What To Do

 
  • Cream butter and sugars together in mixer for about 2 minutes on medium speed, until fluffy and light. Add in eggs and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated.
  • Turn mixer to low and add in flour, baking powder baking soda and salt.
  • Mix on low until evenly incorporated.
  • Stir in all chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  • Cover dough with cling wrap and refrigerate overnight, or up to 48 hours.
  • When ready to bake preheat oven to 350°
  • I used a 3 Tbsp cookie scoop and placed the dough 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
 

How To Do It



 
Beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs...
Add the vanilla...
Stir in the dry ingredients......
Stir in both kinds of chocolate chips and
chill dough in fridge for an hour...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a small ice cream scoop, put the cookie dough on cookie sheets covered with non-stick foil.
Bake for 9-10 minutes and cool on cookie rack.
YUM!

 
These cookies turned out quite well. Better than batch number one. They may seem a bit underdone in the center when you take them out of the oven, but once they cool, they will be perfect! If you prefer crisp cookies, increase baking time 1-2 minutes. I LIKE CHEWY!
 
Try them out, compare them to the first recipe {link here} and see what you think..........
..........you'll be glad ya did!
 

ENJOY!
