chocolate chip cookies

My family loves cookies. Especially chocolate chip cookies.

For decades I was faithful to the Toll House recipe. But then I found other recipes where people would say “best ever” or “better than the typical” or other similar compliments. Made me wonder if there really could be a better chocolate chip cookie recipe. Well, I’ve since found a few.

This recipe was printed on the package of Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips. I do not feel guilty at all for not being faithful to Nestle. These are amazing, as you would expect from Ghirardelli.


Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups unbleached flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 cup light brown sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 eggs

2 cups Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375F.

Stir flour with baking soda and salt then set aside.

In mixer, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add vanilla and eggs — one at a time — mixing on low until incorporated.

Gradually blend dry mixture into creamed mixture.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoons onto parchment paper, silicone baking mats, or ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until golden brown.
