Weekend baking- perfect chocolate chip cookies!

24 Oct

I am a sucker for a good chocolate chip cookie…seriously… I am not ashamed to say that I have been known to replace meals with cookies. Just don’t tell my babies🙂

I tried a new recipe this weekend and it they turned out to be delish!  The beautiful green platter is from the Willow House Verde collection and can be seen here ($34.96)

Here is the recipe… Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 cups of unbleached organic all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1/2 teaspoon of salt

3/4 cups of organic unsalted butter, melted

1 cup of organic packed brown sugar

1/2 cup of  organic cane sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla extract

1 egg

1 egg yolk

2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips ( I used Ghirardelli )

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2.  Grease 2 cookie sheets or line them with parchment paper
  3. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt, set aside
  4. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and cane sugar until well blended.
  5. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy
  6. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.
  7. Stir in the chocolate chips using a wooden spoon.
  8. Drop cookie dough(about 1/4 of a cup at a time) onto cookie sheet. The cookies need to be about 3 inches apart. Makes about 18 cookies.
  9. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until the edges are lightly tasted.
  10. Cool on baking sheets for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
Voila!
