Mean Chocolate Chip Cookies
Source of Recipe
List of Ingredients
2/3 lb unsalted butter, (2 sticks plus 1/3 cup)
4 1/2 ounces brown sugar, firmly packed (2/3 cup)
4 1/2 ounces white sugar (2/3 cup)
3 large eggs
1/2 tablespoon vanilla (1 1/2 tsp)
1 lb all-purpose flour (3 1/2 cups)
1/2 tablespoon baking soda (1 1/2 tsp)
1/4 tablespoon salt (3/4 tsp)
1 1/4 lbs chocolate chips (2 ten oz pkgs. Ghirardelli bitter sweet)
7 1/2 ounces walnuts (2 cups)
Cream butter and both sugars.
Add eggs a few at a time mixing after each addition.
Add vanilla, scrape down and beat until smooth.
Sift dry ingredients together, add to mixer, mix until almost totally incorporated.
Add chips and nuts, mix until well combined.
I use a large ice cream scoop to portion for very large cookies or 1 1/2 oz scoop to make 4 dozen.
They freeze well unbaked.
They keep a long time.
To bake (thaw if frozen), press down to flatten, bake at 350° until done.
Should be well browned.
Cooking time will vary considerably depending on cookie size.
1 1/2 oz scoop cookies bake in about 18-20 minutes depending how you like them, soft and chewy or crisp.
