Happy Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!

According to The Food Network, today was National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. So, of course I used that as an excuse to bake a batch!

My Aunt Margie and sister Meghan are famous for their chocolate chip cookies, but I never seem to have success when I try to duplicate their efforts. So, I was very happy when my friend Janet shared her recipe with me. While I usually hand mix cookie dough, I’ve found that this recipe turns out the best when I use my Kitchen-Aid mixer.

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

12 tablespoons (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1 cup packed brown sugar (I like to use 1/2 cup light and 1/2 cup dark)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg, plus 1 large egg yolk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 bag semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl; set aside.

3. Mix butter and all sugars until thoroughly blended. Beat in egg, yolk, and vanilla.

4. Add dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips

5. Roll dough into balls and place on baking sheets.
6. Bake 15-18 minutes, cool on baking sheets.

Store in a reusable container. These are super delish when re-warmed in the microwave for 10 seconds!
