Good morning!!!

If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you might remember that I did a post about chocolate chip cookie baking for one of the days of Blogmas. However, my friend Travis with whom I do most of the baking that appears on this blog, turned 28 on Thursday and we wanted to bake something classic. 

After whisking the batter for cupcakes and cheesecake with a manual whisk since we didn’t have an electric mixer, I got him a mixer for his birthday and we tested it out on this cookie recipe. I have to say, it worked pretty darn well and sped up the prep time by a good 15 minutes. 

Ingredients

20160617-094319.jpg

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.
  3. Add in egg and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  4. Add flour and chocolate chips. Mix until fully combined.
  5. Dollop cookie dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. 

Notes

  • Because these were birthday cupcakes, I wanted to make a few that were special, so some of the cookies were slightly bigger. One had 28 spelled out in chocolate chips, another had a K on it for my name, a C for Travis’s brother’s name, a heart-shaped cookie, and a cookie with a smiley face. Had we not made these cookies slightly bigger, this recipe would have made around 4 dozen cookies.
  • I never realized how efficient an electric mixer was until we had made cupcakes using a whisk and then made these cookies with the mixer. The prep time is essentially cut in half, which was nice because it gave us more time to catch up.

And at one point, some of the cookies were baking into each other so I accused them of kissing and pulled the towel curtains closed to give them some privacy. Gosh I am strange sometimes.
