The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Ever-Alice's Recipe
The PERFECT chocolate chip cookie! You have to try these!
- 1 cup salted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until it is nice and fluffy (approx. 5 minutes on medium speed on a KitchenAid Mixer.) Make sure the mixture gets VERY creamy.
Add the eggs and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes. Add salt, baking soda, baking powder, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated. Finally add chocolate chips until well distributed. The cookie batter should be somewhat thick. Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough or use a medium cookie scoop and plop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown. We baked ours for 14 minutes, just watch them. Remove from heat and allow the cookies to stay on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes. Pick up the parchment paper with the cookies still on top and transfer to a cool non-porous surface. Allow the cookies to cool on the paper for at least 3 minutes before serving. It was hard to wait 3 minutes, but we listened to Alice:)
