Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's not often I make cookies these days or bake in general...much to my husbands displeasure. With new prospects on the horizon of him going back to school for some training, I decided to surprise him with some chocolate chip cookies to celebrate!

*I used the bread flour recommendation that Bridget gave and thought these turned out so fabulous!*

Ingredients
  • 2¼ cups (10.8 ounces) bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup (1.75 ounces) sugar
  • 1¼ cups (8.75 ounces) brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
Directions
  • Adjust an oven rack to the middle position. Heat the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt & baking soda.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until creamy. Add the sugars & beat on medium speed until fluffy. Add the eggs, one a time, mixing for one minute after each addition. Add the vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low & add flour, mixing just until almost combined. Add the chocolate chips & pulse the mixer on low speed until the chips are dispersed & the flour is incorporated.
  • Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the lined baking pan, spaced an inch or two apart. Bake the cookies for 7-10 min., until slightly browned around the edges & just set in the middle. Cool the cookies for at least 2 minutes on the sheet before transferring to a rack to finish cooling.
