So today was indeed a happy day! I was in the company of Chef Bobbie, a young celebrity chef, well, almost in the making!
She was ably assisted by daughter, and the cookies turned out great. I was truly impressed. Every bite was mmm…melt in the mouth and chocolate chip laden…yum! Must try for every home cook or otherwise!
Here is the recipe!
•2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon kosher salt( actually any salt)
•1 teaspoon baking soda
•2 ounces milk ( 4 tbsp)
•1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
•2 sticks unsalted butter
•1 cup sugar
•1/2 cup brown sugar
•2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
•Ice cream scooper (#20 disher, to be exact)
Heat oven to 375 degrees F( 180 degrees C) .Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Combine the egg, milk, and vanilla and bring to room temperature in another bowl.
Cream the butter in the mixer’s work bowl, starting on low speed to soften the butter. Add the sugars. Increase the speed, and cream the mixture until light and fluffy. Reduce the speed and add the egg mixture slowly. Increase the speed and mix until well combined.
Slowly add the flour mixture, scraping the sides of the bowl until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheets, 6 cookies per sheet. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, checking the cookies after 5 minutes.
Rotate the baking sheet for more even browning.
Remove the cookies from the pans immediately. Once cooled, store in an airtight container.
