Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Cookie Tuesday! These chocolate chip cookies are sure to please Santa when he comes shooting down your chimney in a few weeks! Don't be skeptical of the ingredient amounts in this recipe and scale them down. DON'T! I was really skeptical too, but I still made the recipe as written and they turned out beautifully! Chewy, delicious...everything a chocolate chip cookie should be! I chose to use the holiday swirl chips in this recipe as well, and that was a fun twist! They taste like white chocolate, which was a very tasty variation for this time of year! I hope your families and Santa enjoy these as much as I do!


...3 1/2 cups flour
...1 t. baking powder
...1 t. baking soda
...1 t. salt
...1 cup butter, softened (you can also substitute unsweetened applesauce or plain yogurt to lessen fat and calorie content. I would have but I didn't have any of either on hand and was NOT going to the store for like the 5th time that day...)
...2 cups brown sugar
...6 T. white sugar
...2 eggs
...4 t. vanilla extract
...1 bag of chocolate chips


In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt with a fork until well combined. Set aside, and in another large bowl cream together butter and sugars until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until well combined. Stir wet mixture into flour mixture until well combined. The dough will be a little tougher than normal cookie dough, just work with it and be patient until everything is well combined. Fold in chocolate chips until well distributed. Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheet (if you prefer a flatter cookie, flatten the balls as you place them on the baking sheet) and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
