Melissa's Chocolate Chip Cookies...

OK i have to thank Alton Brown for doing a show on chocolate chip cookies. He taught me the science behind them and i was able to come up with a recipe that gives me my flat but chewy cookies. And i don't even have to whack them on the counter. So after his show i came up with this recipe, i added 2 of my favorite ones together then add some extras.
I hope you enjoy it as much as i do!

The BEST EVER Chocolate Chip Cookies
(this recipe is doubled)

2c. Butter (4sticks) -room temp.
3C. Brown Sugar
1 C. White Sugar
2 Eggs
2 Egg yolks
4 TBSP. Milk (this is a must)
2tsp. Vanilla
5C. Flour
2 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
2 tsp. Salt
4 C. Milk Chocolate Chips

-Cream the butter&sugars together,until fluffy about 4-5 mins.

-Mix Flour, Baking Soda, salt in a separate bowl

-Mix eggs, milk & vanilla to sugar mixture

-Add dry ingredients in 3 parts, and mix well in between

-Add chocolate chips, mix well

This is very important
- line your cookie sheets with parchment paper (NOT WAX PAPER)

-Scoop cookies on sheets with a cookie scoop so they are all the same size

-Bake @ 350 for 8-10 mins, turning the cookie sheet once after 5 mins. They will start to look golden brown on the edges.

-when you remove them from the oven slide the parchment paper off onto your counter so the cookies stop baking.

Let them cool and indulge.

  1. That's funny Melissa, ever since your post forever ago about hitting the cookies on the counter, I always do it, and I've told everyone know!
