Chocolate Chunk Cookies for someone special

I promised a friend of ours, a batch of his favorite cookies as soon as his diet would allow & he request came for this weekend. I was thrilled to oblige!  These have more of a chocolate wallop than my Chocolate Chip Cookies. And they are so good! If only they acted as a yummy medicine that cured everything. I just hope they made him smile!

Make these the next time you have a chocolate craving.

Lishie's Chocolate Chunk Cookies
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed 
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 2 & 1/2 cups AP flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2, 4 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate bking bars (I use Ghirardhelli), broken into uneven chunks.

Preheat oven to  300°.

Mix together the 2 sugars until combined. Add the butter & mix on medium speed until blended & fluffy. Add eggs & vanilla & beat until well incorporated. 

Sift together flour, baking soda & salt in a separate, smaller bowl. Add slowly to the butter/sugar/egg mixture until incorporated. Do not over-mix!

Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.

Drop rounded tablespoons of the batter on greased cookie sheets (or silpats). Bake 20-22 minutes or until the cookies are light, golden brown. 

Cool on baking racks (but make sure you eat a couple warm & gooey out of the oven!!!) Makes 3 dozen (give or take a couple of extra gooey ones that "go missing".)

*Lishie Tips- Make sure your butter & eggs are at room temperature! I crack each egg separately into a small bowl, before adding to the batter.  Sift all of the dry ingredients together! Remember the chip/flour tipLeave about a TBsp of the flour mixture in it's original bowl & mix in the chips with it. This little bit of flour will help the chips not settle into the bottom of the pan.
