Chocolate Chip Cookies

One thing I love to do is to bake sweets for my sweety. There's always so many cookies that we end up giving them away to friends who all rave about them. I thought I'd share my recipe with you.


2 sticks unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons good vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375o
1. Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Meanwhile, sift together flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside.

2. Pour slightly cooled melted butter in mixer's work bowl. Add sugar and brown sugar. Cream butter and sugars on medium speed. Add egg, yolk, milk, and vanilla and mix well until combined.

3. Slowly incorporate flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

4. Chill dough, then scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets, six per sheet.

5. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown, checking cookies after 5 minutes. Rotate baking sheet for even browning. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
