My Husband’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

February 10, 2012

Whenever I make this recipe for my handsome half, he almost tears up from shear joy.  He has his own special treat plate with a glass dome where cookies such as these are stored.  I love watching him enjoy something I’ve made for him knowing full well that as he enjoys whatever it is, his mouth is doing a happy dance.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes about 5 dozen

Preheat oven 375°


            3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

            1 tsp. baking soda

            ¾ tsp salt

            1 1/3 cups butter, softened

            1 ¼ cups granulated sugar

            1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

            2 eggs

            4 tsp. Mexican vanilla extract, if available – if not, use pure vanilla extract

            1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

            1 cup milk chocolate chips

            ½ cup toasted chopped walnuts or pecans pieces (optional)

Mix Together: 

Flour, baking soda & salt in a medium bowl – set aside.  Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light & fluffy.  Add eggs & vanilla & mix well.  Gradually beat in the flour mixture on low speed until well mixed.  Stir in chocolate chips & optional nuts.

Drop by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets or cookie pans.

Bake on preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and let cool for 1 minute before removing cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
