Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe | Yield: approx 2 dozen (50g each)
1 cup (226g) Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup (100g) Granulated Sugar
3/4 cup (170g) Brown Sugar
1.5 (75g) Eggs
1 teaspoon (5g) Vanilla Bean Paste
2 1/2 cups (300g) All-purpose Flour
1 teaspoon (5g) Salt
1/2 teaspoon (2.5g) Baking Soda
3 cups (450g) Chocolate Chips
1 cup (125g) Chopped Walnuts
Preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In mixing bowl of stand mixer fitted with paddle blade, on low speed, cream butter and both sugars until light and creamy, approximately 3-5 minutes.
In increments, add eggs, beating between each addition. Add vanilla.
Sift together, flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture.
Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Using a scoop, portion the dough onto baking sheet approximately 2" apart. Chill dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes then bake approximately 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
I prefer to use a mix of white, milk and white couverture chocolate chips.
Walnuts are optional. You can substitute your favorite nut or just omit.
I usually do not bake my cookies immediately. Instead I portion, freeze and bake as needed. If baking from frozen, add a couple extra minutes to the baking time.
