Basic Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

 INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 sticks of room temperature butter
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/4 tsp. of baking soda
1 tsp. salt

 

 DIRECTIONS

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Whip the butter until fluffy.
  3. Add both types of sugar, mix until combined, and crack in both eggs. Whip on low speed until well mixed.
  4. Add the flour and mix on low until the dough sticks to the beater of the stand mixer.
  5. Add the chocolate chips, and mix on the lowest setting until chocolate chips are distributed evenly.
  6. Place a sheet of parchment paper on the baking sheet(s), and scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough about an inch apart from each other. Press slightly to flatten the dough balls a bit, and then bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

 

Kitchen Sink Cookies

Get creative with your basic chocolate chip cookie by throwing in some things you probably already have in your refrigerator or pantry. The extra chewiness from the peanut butter and crunch from the walnuts add awesome texture and I love that these cookies remind me of chocolate peanut butter cups.

 

INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 sticks of room temperature butter
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/4 tsp. of baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 frozen waffles; thawed and chopped into small pieces
2 tbsp. peanut butter
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

 

 DIRECTIONS

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Whip the butter and peanut butter until fluffy.
  3. Add both types of sugar, mix until combined, and crack in both eggs. Whip on low speed until well mixed.
  4. Add the flour and mix on low until the dough sticks to the beater of the stand mixer.
  5. Add the chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, and mix on the lowest setting until chocolate chips are distributed evenly.
  6. Using your hands, gently knead in the waffle pieces into the dough.
  7. Place a sheet of parchment paper on the baking sheet(s), and scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough about an inch apart from each other. Press slightly to flatten the dough balls a bit, and then bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

 

Spice Cookies

This next variation is like a marriage between a Gingerbread and Chocolate Chip cookie.  Just by adding three common spices, you’ve turned an ordinary cookie into a festive holiday treat.

 

INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 sticks of room temperature butter
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/4 tsp. of baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. fleur de sel

 

 DIRECTIONS

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Whip the butter until fluffy.
  3. Add both types of sugar, mix until combined, and crack in both eggs. Whip on low speed until well mixed.
  4. Add the flour, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fleur de sel and mix on low until the dough sticks to the beater of the stand mixer.
  5. Add the chocolate chips, and mix on the lowest setting until chocolate chips are distributed evenly.
  6. Place a sheet of parchment paper on the baking sheet(s), and scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough about an inch apart from each other. Press slightly to flatten the dough balls a bit, and then bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

  2. Whip the butter and maple syrup until fluffy.
  3. Add both types of sugar, mix until combined, and crack in both eggs. Whip on low speed until well mixed.
  4. Add the flour and mix on low until the dough sticks to the beater of the stand mixer.
  5. Add the chocolate chips and mix on the lowest setting until chocolate chips are distributed evenly.  Mix in the bacon pieces by hand.
  6. Place a sheet of parchment paper on the baking sheet(s), and scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough about an inch apart from each other. Press slightly to flatten the dough balls a bit, and then bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
