I Heart Chocolate

My favorite Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2
cups unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

cup packed light-brown sugar

teaspoon salt

teaspoons pure vanilla extract

large eggs

to 4 cups milk chocolate chips (about 24 ounces)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    In bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of
    an electric mixer, combine butter with
    both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to
    low; add salt, vanilla and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute.
    Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.


  1. Drop heaping tablespoon-size
    balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment


  1. Bake until cookies are
    golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes.
    Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet.
