Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Adapted from The Baker Chick)
My most asked for recipe. I'm a soft chocolate chip cookie kinda girl. The secret to bomb-A$$ situation is melted butter. I learned that from The Baker Chick from whom this is adapted. Want to make it extra special? Use chocolate salt! What?! I know, it actually IS a thing. buy it here: SALT
2 cups plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose Gluten Free flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
12 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled until warm
1 cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup coconut sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
*chocolate/plain flake sea salt for sprinkling
Adjust oven racks to upper and lower-middle positions. Preheat oven 325°.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or use silpats.
Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
With electric mixer, or by hand, mix butter and sugars until thoroughly combined.
Beat in egg, yolk, and vanilla until combined.
Add dry ingredients and beat at low-speed just until combined.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Roll 2 tbsp of dough into a ball and place onto cookie sheet, leaving room between each ball. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft and puffy (approximately 11-14 minutes). Do not over bake, it is too easy to do! Cool cookies on sheets until able to lift without breaking. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. I mean you can eat them immediately but you will burn your tongue on the chocolate chips...I do every time.
