Once upon a time I thought I had found my favorite chocolate chip cookie. Its this one from the Pioneer Woman. They weren't great right out of the oven but were better the next day. Then I found this recipe. Soft, chewy, sweet, and the perfect amount of chocolate chips. The best part is they stay as good as straight out of the oven for days, but they probably wont last that long. So for now, this is my favorite recipe. Please make these!!
Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe Adapted From: ChewOutLoud.com
2 1/4 cups & 1 Tablespoon All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Salted Butter, at room temp
1 cup Brown Sugar, gently packed
1 - 3.4oz pkg White Chocolate Pudding
2 Large Eggs
1/2 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
1. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the brown sugar and butter. Beat on medium high until light and fluffy. Add the pudding and mix until just combined. Add in the eggs and vanilla. Beat until well combined.
3. Slowly add in the dry ingredients mixing on low until just combined. Add in the chocolate chips and mix until well distributed. Place saran wrap right on the dough pressing down gently to compact the cookie dough. Place in the fridge and chill for at least an hour.
4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silpat mat. using a small cookie scoop make 1 inch balls and press a little. Bake for about 10 minutes, mine take 11. They may seem a little under done but thats ok. Make sure not to over bake. Let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes then place on a cooling rack.
