Bittersweet and Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bittersweet and Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies are good when baked right away but even better when made with chilled dough. The cookies have a nicer shape and flavor when walnuts are added, but you can leave them out if you need to.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour 14 oz/390 grams
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 3/4 teaspoon if using salted butter
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter room temperature (8 oz/225 grams)
  • 1/2 cup C&H Baker’s Sugar or Ultra Fine sugar 3.5 oz/100 grams
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar about 9 oz/250 grams
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg plus 2 tablespoons lightly beaten egg 70 grams total
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts

Instructions

  • Mix the flour, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter until creamy. Add both sugars and beat until creamy. Add the egg and beat on low until it is blended in, then add the 2 tablespoon of beaten egg and beat until blended. Add the vanilla and beat until blended, scraping sides of the bowl.
  • Using lowest speed of mixer, add the flour mixture and stir until well blended. Stir in all of the chocolate chips and the nuts.
  • Empty dough onto a large clean surface covered with foil, parchment or waxed paper and shape dough into a log. Divide the log into 12 pieces, then divide those pieces so that you have 24 mounds. Arrange them in a pan small enough to fit in the refrigerator and chill the mounds for a few hours or until very firm. For best results, chill overnight.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375. You will be turning down the heat
  • Arrange the cookies at least 2 1/2 inches apart on a heavy duty baking sheet lined with foil (or parchment).
  • Put the cookies in the oven and immediately reduce heat to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake for about 14-16 minutes or until cookies appear set. Let cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then carefully remove to a wire rack.
