step by step guide: The Best Chocolate Chip COOKIES

ingredients

  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Oats (not instant) 1/3 Cup should be after you grind the oats in a blender, Nutribullet or food processor.
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract No imitation vanilla. Use a good quality vanilla extract.
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Cup Salted Butter (not substitution) (Two Sticks Soften)
  • 3/4 Cup Granulated White Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Light Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 1/2 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips Use good chocolate chips such as GhiGhirardelli
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans or Walnuts (Optional)

1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.

2. Creaming together butter, sugar, eggs & vanilla

In a large mixing bowl (I use my KitchenAid Mixer), cream butter, granulated white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy.

Add eggs one at a time into the mixture and mix until all ingredients are creamy.

3. Cookie Dough

With your mixer on a slow speed, gradually add flour, salt and baking soda. I like to use a large spoon to add a little at a time.

In a food processor grind the oats to a powder. Then add to the cookie mixture.

4. Adding the good stuff

Set your speed on your mixer to medium. Add in chopped nuts and mix (optional).

Stir in chocolate chips and mix until all are distributed into the cookie mixture. Do not over mix. Over mixing can cause your dough to me tough

5. Baking

Using a medium size cookie scoop or spoon, drop rounded tablespoon of cookie mixture onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Using a cookie scoop will produce cookies of the same size.

Bake for 9-12 minutes (depending on your oven) or until golden brown.

Cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes and remove to wire racks or plate to thoroughly cool.

Cookies can be stored in air tight containers. Cookies can also be made ahead and store in the freezer. Remove 1/2 hour before serving to thaw.
