I don’t know Alice. I’ve never met Alice. But Alice knows how to bake her some cookies.
In honor of National Chocolate Chip Day I decided to make my family some chocolate chip cookies and went scouring the internet for a recipe. Anytime someone uses “Best” in their recipe I’m usually skeptical but these lived up to their name.
And how do I know that they are that good? Besides eating them myself, my nephew Caleb who doesn’t like sweets ate two of these. That he ate one is a miracle in itself but to go out and get another – wow!
I halved the original recipe and recipes get all wonky (that’s an official term by the way) when you mess with the measurements, but this one still turned out great.
Alice’s “The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe EVER!” (Recipe adapted from Savory Sweet Life)
1 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 oz all-purpose flour
Dash kosher salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. baking powder
11/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until fluffy (approx. 3 minutes on medium-high speed). Add egg and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated. Finally add chocolate chips until well distributed. Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough or use a medium cookie scoop and plop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown. Remove from heat and allow the cookies to stay on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes. Pick up the parchment paper with the cookies still on top and transfer to a cool non-porous surface. Allow the cookies to cool on the paper for at least 3 minutes before serving.
* about ten cookies had already been eaten (not all by me!) before I snapped some pics. My nephew (Jacob, not Caleb) even asked if he could have one as I was snapping away. Then proceeded to take a cookie…and the milk.
