Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
I'm trying to pump out a few recipes today to make up for my lack of recipes in the past two months. So I apologize for the lack of blabber before the recipe. But let's be honest, you don't actually care about the babble anyways. This recipe is definitely one to keep in your back pocket. Enjoy!
**This recipe requires dough to sit in the fridge for 4-6 hours or overnight.**
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, browned and cooled
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups chocolate chunks (I like to mix milk chocolate and dark chocolate)
Brown butter over medium heat, be sure to not burn the butter. Set aside to cool.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl until well combined.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined before the next one.
Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Scoop out dough using a rounded tablespoon. Place on parchment paper lined sheet and refrigerate for 4-6 hours or overnight. This will produce a more rich and flavorful cookie.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Set aside to cool on baking sheet for about 2 minutes before transferring to wire rack to completely cool.
