A few weeks ago, I did something I’ve never done before: make cookies. I feel pretty confident with cooking, but baking is the wild west as far as I’m concerned. The first recipe was one I spotted on Facebook in an exchange between the Abendroth cookie experts. The second is my favorite cookie that my mom makes. (Turns out they are from the back of the white chocolate chips bag. Ha!) I tried a third cookie this weekend but it didn’t turn out real well so I’ll have to give it another shot before it hits the blog. Enjoy!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. [source]
