The small amount of work it takes to make these amazing cookies is nothing compared to the results at the end!
The Food Network’s Tyler Florence makes a traditional cookie batter using softened butter mixed with brown and white sugar, resulting in a fluffy center and crisp chewy edge.
I take them to the next level by using fine quality chocolate such as Ghirardelli premium baking chips! I’ve used this recipe for years and it remains a crowd pleaser at company potlucks and family gatherings. 😊
This really is the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
My Mom was feeling under the weather so I spent a couple days with her and while she slept I baked her cookies… for those familiar with my blog, you might notice this isn’t my kitchen… 😊
Start by mixing softened butter with white and brown sugar.
I couldn’t find her mixer so I did it by hand…
Once fluffy mix in the eggs and vanilla.
Then incorporate the dry mixture.
Mix until just combined.
And lastly fold in the chocolate chips.
I like to chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes before I form the cookies and bake.
Luckily my mom had a cookie scoop to streamline the process.
I under-bake them by a minute or so since they continue to “cook” after pulled out of the oven. By under-baking you’ll achieve a soft chewy center. 🙂
Ghirardelli chocolate is SO DELICIOUS! These cookies are also SO DELICIOUS!
