My Big, Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

This was one of the first recipes I can remember making when I was a little girl. My mom would sit me up on the counter and show me how it was done. While they were cooking I got to lick the spatula and when they were done we had hot chocolate chip cookies and ice cold milk. One of my best memories.

Directions

  1. Whisk the flour, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.
  2. Beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a bowl with a mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes (use the paddle attachment for a stand mixer). Beat in the eggs one at a time, then beat in the vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low, add the flour mixture and beat until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the dough and refrigerate at least 1 hour or preferably overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop scant tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until golden brown around the edges but still light in the center, about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool completely.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
