Giant Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh look, more cookies! Who could have ever guessed?! As it turns out, these ones are (also) quite delicious, and sturdy enough once they’ve cooled that you can wave them around without them falling apart, even though they’re enormous. Not that cookie waving stability is an important criterion, but it is a difference from the last cookies, which were not as sturdy.

IMG_9969Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup tightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used 1 cup dark mini-chips and 1 cup milk chocolate disks, as that was what I had available)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt, then set aside.

Beat together the butter and sugars until well blended.

IMG_9965Beat in the vanilla, egg, and yolk until light and creamy. This would have been easier with a mixer, but since it was the only exercise I got all day, I suppose I shouldn’t complain. The color did become noticeably lighter after enough beating.

IMG_9966Mix in the flour mixture until just combined, then stir in the chocolate chips.

IMG_9967Drop dough in 1/4 cup portions on the lined sheets, leaving several inches between each. Mine were probably more of a ‘heaping 1/4 cup’, which I guess was larger than necessary, but…I’m not complaining.

IMG_9970Bake 15-17 minutes, until lightly browned at the edges. Cool several minutes on the sheet, until stable enough to be moved to a wire rack to cool completely.

IMG_9972Eat over the course of a day and a half.

To be fair, this is a small plate.

My name's Corinne, and I like cake, cookies, and chocolate! Also, non-c-things such as ponies, Star Trek, and biking. (Over the summer, my bike glove tans will probably become pretty glaring in some of these photos.) I'll be sharing my adventures in the kitchen. Expect lots of recipes to have chocolate swapped in to replace other inferior ingredients.
