Chocolate Chip Cookies

Remember these?

Choc Chip Scones 004

 

My “all natural”, Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips…from a friend …that I saved for something special. First, I made Chocolate Chip Scones, then I decided I wanted some good old fashion Chocolate Chip Cookies…so I made some.  

When it was noticed that I was taking pictures of said Chocolate Chip Cookies, I was asked, “Are you planning on blogging those?”  To my affirmative replay I was reminded, “You know the recipe is on the back of the bag, right?”  and “Don’t you think people already know how to make Chocolate Chip Cookies?”  

Just for clarification….I do realize the recipe is on the bag and I know everyone probably already has the “best Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe you’ve ever tasted”…

But, I am still going to write and publish this post because I LOVE Chocolate Chip Cookies and I think the Ghirardelli recipe is the BEST…and I had the chips to make it. 

Here’s the Recipe…which can be found on the back of ANY bag of Chocolate Chips:

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour – White Lily is my preference
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups chocolate  chips
  • Optional: 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray baking sheet with non stick cooking spray

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Combine flour, soda, and salt – set aside

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Beat butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Add vanilla and eggs (one a time) beating on low until well combined

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gradually add flour mixture, continuing to beat on low until well combined

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Stir in chocolate chips (and nuts if using)

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Drop by tablespoon onto prepared baking sheet

Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown

Let stand a minute or so then remove from pan and cool on wire rack

I prefer my cookies thin but chewy, right out of the oven, with a nice cold glass of milk!

    I use Ghirardelli chips in all my recipes, so this sounds awesome! And, it’s nice to have a printed recipe that’s not on the bag. 🙂
