Our family LOVES cookies and we love to bake them so it’s natural that we have at least 10 different recipes for every type of cookie!
Out of all of the chocolate chip cookie recipes we have (seriously, there’s a ton!) this one here is a fan favorite. The cookies are fluffy and cake-like, not to mention thick!
Start off by preheating your oven to 350° and grease two cookie sheets.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 1/4 cups of flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
6 ounces of milk chocolate chips
6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup of pecans or walnuts
In a small bowl whisk together the flour and the baking soda and set aside.
In a mixing bowl combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar and beat on a medium speed until fluffy, then reduce the speed to low.
While on low add the salt, vanilla, and the eggs. Beat until mixed well.
Once everything is mixed well add the flour/baking soda mixture a little bit at a time to prevent clumping and mix until all the ingredients are combined.
Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the chocolate chips (and the pecans or walnuts if you add these) and you’re ready to bake!
Drop the tablespoon sized balls of dough 2 inches apart on your cookie sheets. Once the oven is preheated bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies look golden brown.
