Chocolate Chip Goodness


These were unbelievably chewy and rich, and not overly sweet! Based on David Lebovitz's recipe, I made some adjustments to the sugar content and fillers. I prefer no nuts in my CC cookies.

1 stick of unsalted butter, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
1 c packed light brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
2 eggs, room temp
2.5 c fluffed flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
5 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
2 oz 99% chocolate roughly broken 

Cream butter, sugars and vanilla for 10 minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time. Add in flour, salt and soda, mix for another 5 minutes. Add in the chocolate. Roll dough into Saran Wrap at about 2-3 inches in thickness and refrigerate to harden. Slice off 2 cm rounds and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven, about 3 inches apart on parchment paper. These should be ready in 10-12 minutes. Cool on a baking rack.
