Many of you have asked me to post the recipe for my chocolate chip cookies, and so here is the recipe, complete with the pictorial. Happy Valentine’s Day- enjoy!
Start with an old, ugly, ungreased cookie sheet (NOT a negative edge one).
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
In a large bowl, beat together two sticks of Challenge butter (do NOT soften or melt- use cold, hard & straight out of the refrigerator). I use a hand mixer.
Add 3/4 cups of brown sugar, 3/4 cups of sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Beat together. Add 2 eggs (one at a time, mixing after each addition). Beat until creamy.
In another bowl, combine 3 cups of flour, 1 tsp. baking soda and 1 tsp. salt.
Once mixed, add slowly to butter mixture. Beat in a little at a time (about 3-4 additions total). Batter may seem much drier than a typical cookie batter.
Mix in 1 12 oz bag of Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Take a small handful of cookie dough, smashing, compacting and rolling into a smooth, perfect little ball and place on cookie sheet (about 12 cookies on a sheet).
Bake for 9 minutes (they may look a little underdone) at 375.
Remove from oven and immediately place on a wire cooling rack.
Best served warm!
