Chocolate chip cookies---Finally a winner for me!
A long time ago, I posted a request for help to turn my flat-as-a-pancake-with-chocolate-chip-pyramids cookies into a thicker, chewy chocolate chip cookie, a la bakery style. I tried all the recipes offered. I have finally discovered one one that works for me in my ovens! Found the recipe on "Allrecipes." The cookies taste great and they come out big and thick, fully cooked (!), chewy in the middle (not cake-like), crunchy on the outside.
Here's the recipe:
Bakery-style Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.
3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
4. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt.
5. Stir in flour and chocolate chips.
6. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
7. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned. [I had to bake for about 15 minutes]
