Updated version of one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes
Ingredients
  • 2 cups minus 2 tablespoons (8 1/2 ounces) cake flour
  • 1 2/3 cups (8 1/2 ounces) bread flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 1/2 sticks (1 1/4 cups) unsalted butter (10 oz)
  • 1 1/4 cups (10 ounces) light brown sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (8 ounces) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons natural vanilla extract
  • 3 cups large bittersweet chocolate chips or your favorite chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Do not preheat the oven yet because the dough requires chilling.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together both of the flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Reduce speed to low and add vanilla and mix until blended, scraping sides of bowl.
  4. Add the flour mixture and mix until blended, then add the chocolate.
  5. Scoop big mounds of dough and set on a parchment lined tray or a couple of plates. Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight.
  6. When ready to bake, set dough on a parchment lined baking sheet spacing about 3 inches apart.
  7. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until lightly browned, but still soft, about 18-20 minutes.
