Fatty Chocolate Chip Cookies
From YumSugar - slightly adapted from the old fashioned Tollhouse recipe

This is the one recipe that my brain has memorized. It's my go to recipe whenever I need a quick homemade treat. And bonus, you don't need any kind of fancy mixer.

2 1/4 cups flour (this time I used all-purpose, but it works great with 1 1/2 cups wheat 3/4 cups all-purpose)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

2 sticks of unsalted butter (room temp)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs (room temp)
1 tbsp milk
1 12oz package of chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt into small bowl. Set aside.If you don't have a sifter, a sieve will work really well. Just fill and tap the sides gently.
  3. In large bowl, beat butter until creamy - add granulated sugar and brown sugar until smooth.
  4. Mix in vanilla extract.
  5. Add 1 egg, mix well. Add 2nd egg, mix well.
  6. Gradually mix in flour mixture (I do it in thirds).
  7. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Add in milk. Mix well - batter should be slightly creamy, but not smooth like cake batter.
  8. Once batter is thoroughly combined, mix in chocolate chips.
  9. Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop out the mixture (level off with the back side of a knife) and place onto baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or silpat).
  10. Scoop dough out until pan is full (about 2-3 inches apart).
  11. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Leave on pan for 2 minutes then transfer to wire rack for cooling.
  13. Makes 15-20 cookies depending on the size (and how much batter you nibble on).

    Note: When cooking next batch, be sure pan is completely cooled before placing cookie dough.

    Note 2: When making these cookies at home, I often beat the butter for several minutes before adding in the sugar.
