Ok, so this recipe almost ages me. But I kind of love that.
I have been making practically the same Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe for almost 21 years. Maybe more. It’s all done by memory now, and I think it’s high-time that I share it with you – as I really don’t think the cookbook is in print anymore… So here it is, my go-to Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe!
Old-Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies
Loosely adapted by memory from this recipe.
Yield: ~18 cookies
- 2 sticks butter (1 cup), room temperature
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 cups dark chocolate chunks
- Fleur de sel, for garnish
Preheat oven to 375F.
Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add in vanilla and eggs, and beat well.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add gradually to butter mixture. Combine well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by 1 or 2oz. spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, and bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until light browned.
Sprinkle with a pinch of Fleur de sel on each cookie, remove from the baking sheet, and cool on a wire rack.
These babies are dense and chewy – just how I like my chocolate chip cookies!! Pass me a glass of milk, and I’m a happy camper.
