Savory Sweet Life’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s my 3rd Blogiversary! Well, it was actually on Tuesday, but I kind of forgot.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since I live alone, I decided to make myself my favorite cookie to celebrate. I chopped up some chocolate and mixed it in a big bowl with semi-sweet chocolate chips. I creamed together some sugar, butter, and flour and BOOM! Heaven. It’s not that hard to make me happy.

I decided to go with Alice’s recipe for chocolate chip cookies, since it seemed relatively easy, but mostly since I had heard such rave reviews. These were a total hit! My friends kept asking for more, and now I’m cookie-less. Oh the pains of being a food blogger…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

To make these, preheat oven to 360 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until it is nice and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes on medium-high speed). Add both eggs and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes.

Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated.

Add in those chocolate chips (or chunks) until well distributed. The cookie batter should be thick.

Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough or use a medium cookie scoop and plop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown. Remove from heat and allow the cookies to stay on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes.

Pick up the parchment paper with the cookies still on top and transfer to a cool non-porous surface. Allow the cookies to cool on the paper for at least 3 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
