I have been making chocolate chip cookies for 45+ years; lets just say I’ve tried a zillion recipes, but THIS recipe beats them all, HANDS DOWN!!!

Some chocolate chip cookie recipes have great flavor, but produce a flat cookie that spreads all over the cookie sheet (I hate that, don’t you?). Some recipes produce a picture perfect cookie, but it doesn’t have that wonderfully chewy texture and buttery flavor that a good chocolate cookie needs.

Well, I’m here to tell you that THIS recipe will give you BOTH, a perfectly shaped cookie AND one that is totally delicious.

One word of caution: this cookie dough is very stiff. It’s best to use a stand mixer.

1  1/2  cups real butter (no substitutions)(room temperature)
1  1/4  cups granulated sugar
1  1/4  cups brown sugar
2  Large eggs
Tablespoon vanilla
4  1/4  cups all purpose flour
1  teaspoon baking powder
1  teaspoon baking soda
1  teaspoon salt
2  cups chocolate chips (good quality)

In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the room temperature butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Beat until well mixed and smooth.

In a different bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together, then add it (one cup at a time) to the creamed butter-egg mixture, mixing well between each addition. When it is all well mixed, add the chocolate chips.

Roll the dough into balls about the size of a small walnut. Put onto an UNgreased cookie sheet, about 2″ apart.

Bake in a pre-heated 375°F oven for 10-12 minutes (my electric oven takes 11 minutes).

                  Cool them on a baking screen/rack.

               This recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
