Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies:
1 1/2 cupsgranulated sugar
2 tspbaking soda
3cupssemi-sweet chocolate chips
How to Make Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Pre-heat oven to 380°F. In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugars. Add the vanilla and eggs and beat well. Slowly beat in the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and salt) until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop and roll into balls.
Arrange onto a baking sheet at least 3 inches apart.
Bake 11 minutes. Cool before serving.
For refrigerator cookie dough batter: use a buttery blend or mix in margarine or shortening in place of some or all the butter. Otherwise the cookie batter will be hard to scoop out.To Freeze: Roll cookie batter into balls and flash freeze. Transfer into a zip-loc bag and keep frozen. Bake frozen balls for 11 minutes when needed. For extra chewy chocolate chip cookies: add additional small chunks of dough on top of the rolled cookie bater before baking. For Extra Chocolatey Cookies: insert additional chocolate pieces on top of warm cookies. Note: this recipe makes a large batch so consider partially freezing or storing in the fridge for up-to 6 days.
