Default Chocolate Chip Cookies


I made some terrific chocolate chip cookies today.

I used the new beater blade on the mixer. Dang, is that thing slick

I didn't have to scrape down the sides of the bowl once. It does it
all itself.

I just might bake cookies more often.

Here's the recipe I used. They are moist and chewy.
@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Chocolate Chip Cookies

cookies

1/2 pound (2 sticks) sweet butter; softened
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325F. for giant cookies; 350F for regular cookies.
Grease a cookie sheet.
Cream butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs
and vanilla and mix well.
Sift dry ingredients together and stir in, mixing thoroughly. Add
chocolate chips to batter, and form cookies according to method for
giant cookies.
Bake on the prepared cookie sheet, on the middle rack, for 15 to 17
minutes for giant cookies; 8 to 10 minutes for regular cookies. Remove
from oven while centers are slightly soft. Cool on the baking sheet
for 5 minutes before transferring cookies to a rack to cool
completely.
25 cookies, 5 inches across, or about 80 regular cookies.

Variations:
Add 1 cup chopped walnuts
Add 1 cup unsalted peanuts
Add 1 cup shredded coconut
Substitute 1 teaspoon mint extract for the vanilla extract.

I love cooking with wine.
Sometimes I even put it in the food.

Stop tempting me, woman! Hey, my blade does not work as well as yours,
I have to scrape the sides of my bowl.

You can tweak your bowl height stop so that there is less blade
clearence... user manual should explain. You want to lessen the space
but there should be no physical contact or the scraping blades will
wear much quicker.

That's the only way I'll do cookie dough. What's the point of wearing out
your wrist and fingers trying to use a spoon because some chuckle-headed
chef says it makes a better cookie if you work the cookie dough with a
spoon?

Same thing with meatloaf. I use that kind of attachment for my Kitchen
Aid mixer to make meatloaf. Everything I put into it gets distributed
evenly, and I don't end up with raw meat all over my hands. I see my
method as having a positive benefit. I use the same method for making
tuna/salmon patties, too.
