Anyway...I baked up another batch today and I think these may be contenders for the title. I went back to a very simple recipe from Toll House and adapted the ingredients. I know...seems too easy right? Here's the recipe...if you make these, it's very important to use the exact brand of ingredients recommended, I think that's why they came out so good. If not, I can't be held responsible!
4 1/2 cups of King Arthur all-purpose floor
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. of sea salt (not regular table salt)
4 sticks of Land o'Lakes Light Butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
3/4 cup of dark brown sugar
3/4 cup of light brown sugar ( I think the different brown sugars is the secret...)
2 tsp. of vanilla (not the cheep stuff from grocery store but from Penzys)
4 extra large eggs
Milk Chocolate chips (Ghiredelli is yummy. I just put in about 2 cups)
Nuts (if your husband will let you add them. Mine won't)
I beat the butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs together for at least 5 minutes on high until creamy. Then dumped in all the dry ingredients slowly.
|Love an ice-cream scoop for the batter|
Let me know what you think!
