When I was in high school my sister and I had a small catering company during the summers with a Cordon Bleu Cook named Rosie. We called it “Cooks Night Out.” Can you believe it?!? I found the old “Calling Card” we used to drum up business!
During that time I came up with a chocolate chip cookie recipe that is our families favorite. The cookies are paper thin and filled with soft chocolate chips. It is hard to eat only one! Looking for other types of cookies – Check out all my Cookie Recipes HERE.
- 3 sticks of butter – melted
- 3/4 cups of sugar
- 3/4 cups of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine 12 tablespoons (3/4 cup) of sugar, 14 tablespoons (a bit more than 3/4 cups) of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 2 eggs in an electric stand mixer.
- Melt 3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) of butter, in a microwaveable dish, slowly in the microwave. I use a pyrex measuring cup so I can pour the melted butter.
- Pour the melted butter into your creamed sugar mixture.
- In a separate mixing bowl combine 1 3/4 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix it into the creamed sugar mixture slowly. You don’t want flour flying all over the place.
- When the flour is all mixed in – add 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips.
- Scoop the batter onto a cookie sheet using two teaspoons or a small ice cream scoop. I space them as seen below. THEY SPREAD, SO GIVE THEM ROOM. I use a silpat – but you can also use a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You will need to replace the parchment with each batch.
- I like a lot of chocolate chips in my cookies – so I usually add more chips as I use up the batter.
- In my oven they bake for exactly 12 minutes.
- Once removed from the oven, let them rest for a minute or two, to set, before you put them on a wire rack to cool
The batter really spreads – so be sure to give them room on the baking sheet
