JP World Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love to make chocolate chip cookies and have made them all over the world. I am often asked for my recipe so I thought I would share it here. I don’t always measure my ingredients so the cookies come out a little different every time. Enjoy!
2 1/4 cups (532 gm) all-purpose flour (substitute 1 cup of whole wheat if you like)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt (I use a pinch)
1 cup butter (240 gm), softened (Substitute vegetable oil or coconut oil)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract (I just pour a little – an estimation)
2 large eggs (farm fresh are best)
2 cups of crumbled/shaved dark chocolate – or dark (semi sweet – Nestle original recipe) chocolate chips – our favorite is Whittakers Dark Chocolate with Almonds. Yum
Preheat oven to 375oF (190oC)
In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients. In another bowl mix the wet ingredients – you might have to soften the butter first – but don’t melt it all the way. Combine the dry and wet ingredients – mix just until a nice smooth batter is formed – don’t over mix. Add the chocolate and mix. If you really want to you can add nuts at this point – walnuts or almonds are fantastic. (I prefer my cookies without nuts).
Spoon out small balls of dough onto a nonstick cookie sheet (A small size ice cream scooper works well)– I like to use wax or baking paper or a silicon liner to reduce the mess. Lick the bowl and spoon when done.
Bake for 7-9 minutes until golden brown – a little longer will be crispy – shorter for soft and chewy.
Remove cookies from baking sheet onto a cooling rack – eat immediately for yummy hot out of the oven cookies or cool and eat later. If re using the cookie sheet, let it cool completely before reloading with cookie dough.
