Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I'm always on the hunt for some more delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies and I found another great recipe!

I was on Amazon a few days ago looking for some delicious baking books. I found this one book called Cookie Cravings: 30 All-Time Favorite Recipes. This is the Kindle Edition for $0.99! Only under a dollar, I had to order it, so I did! This book is by Maria Lichty. She has a blog called Two Peas and Their Pod.  There's a bunch of great recipe on there so check out her site!

So as I was saying I was looking for another great Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and decided to make this one! She calls it "Our Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies". I can now understand why this recipe is her favorite! It's super chewy and soft! I'm glad I didn't bake all the dough cause I would love to see how these cookies taste after 72 hours.

Once I made the recipe I refrigerated the dough for 24 hours! The dough can be chilled for 72 hours.

This is the cookie dough after being refrigerated for 24 hours. I didn't have a bigger cookie scoop then the 1 1/2 in. as you see in the above picture. So I just scooped some cookie dough out and added two scoops together, then rolled them into a ball. I did that so I could achieve a big cookie.

Here are the cookies after being removed from the oven. I left them on the pan for about 3 minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack.

Here they are cooling. Don't they look so good? Don't be tempted to try one just yet, there hot! Wait until the cookies are completely cool. Once there cool try a piece, then maybe another! ^_~

Mmmm...look at that delicious cookie! Well I'm about to head to the kitchen and bake up some more! I also have another cookie recipe called New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies, which are awesome! {recipe here!} Like always the recipe for these "Our Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies" will be down below!

After 72 hours from being chilled in the refrigerator, these cookies came out some much better! It's more crispy around the edges and chewy in the center!

Let me know what's your favorite cookie recipe, so I can try them out!


Our Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 20 large (4-inch) cookies // Bake Time: 12-14 minutes

2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoons sea salt
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Sea salt, for sprinkling

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes. Add in the eggs, one at a time. Add in the vanilla extract and mix until combined.

3. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, about 1/2 cup flour mixture at a time. Mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

4. Wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 24 hours. The dough can be chilled for 72 hours.

5. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper. Take about 1/4 cup of cookie dough and roll into a large ball. Place cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, about 3 inches apart. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes, or until the cookies are slightly golden brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
